Rio Haryanto feels he is improving every time he steps into the Manor Racing MRT05 after achieving his first race finish last time out in Bahrain, and is seeking more progress this weekend in China.

Formula 1’s first ever Indonesian race has prior experience of the Shanghai International Circuit, the venue of this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix, and is looking forward to see how competitive the team are this weekend.

“It’s great to have a race distance under my belt and be able to start building some consistency,” said Haryanto. “It feels like every area of my game has improved with each new test and race, particularly my pace relative to my team-mate and the cars around us.

“There was a lot to take away and think about after Bahrain and I’m sure we’ll see more from the car and myself in China. Hopefully we will have made some further improvements with the set-up and I can feel a little more confident with the car.

“It’s a track I know really well from my Asian Formula Renault Challenge and Formula BMW Pacific days. It’s fun and challenging to drive so it will be nice to come back here and see how it feels in a Formula 1 car!”
