Manor unconcerned about Haryanto testing incidents

1 Mins read

Manor Racing sporting director Dave Ryan says he is unconcerned about the couple of spins suffered by Rio Haryanto during the first pre-season test at the Circuit de Catalunya, providing the Indonesian learns from his mistakes.

Haryanto spun during Wednesday’s running and again on Thursday, with the second incident seeing him damaging his rear wing, but Ryan said he would have been surprised if there had not been any incidents as both drivers tested the limits of the MRT05.

“To be honest, I would be surprised if they haven’t had a couple of incidents,” said Ryan on Motorsport.com. “But as long as he learns from it, that’s fine, and it doesn’t cost us, let’s get on with it.”

Haryanto and team-mate Pascal Wehrlein put in a decent amount of laps during the four-day test in Spain, and Ryan insists the team are working hard to finally make the jump into the midfield.

“Certainly, we are not here just to turn up and make the numbers,” added Ryan. “We want to put in a respectable performance.

“Everybody out there, every team out there, is doing the best they can. So, it’s not going to be easy. All we’ve got to do is the best we can and see how we get on. And we are confident we can do a lot better than we’ve done in the past.”
