Mentioned by bola.com, Rio Haryanto had passed the deadline for the submission of an advance contract Manor, amounting to 3.2 million Euro. But what happens if ultimately Manor choose other riders like Alexander Rossi-Will Stevens? Apparently, Rio already has its own answer.
He mentioned in a press conference on Wednesday (27/1) and then, "I plan to keep a career in automotive. May be the reserve driver in F1 while preparing themselves and try their luck in the next season. That (stuff) that I would do, if the opportunity this year is completely covered. "
Despite having a backup plan, Rio Haryanto hope to compete in F1 in 2016 have not been fully extinct. If you look at the achievements of Rio last season in the GP2 Series in 2015, when he made it into the top league, indeed Manor pretty decent considering the former rider Campos Racing as their mainstay.
Rio told bola.com, "I asked for prayers so desires or ideals as an F1 driver can be achieved. I would like to be the first Indonesian racer who competed in F1. "
