Rio Haryanto managed to out-qualify his team-mate Pascal Wehrlein for a third time this season, and admitted he was happy with his efforts during the qualifying session at Monaco.

The Indonesian racer will start nineteenth on Sunday, and is now focused on making the most of his sixth Grand Prix start in order to make the most of any opportunity that may come the way of the Manor Racing driver.

“I’m pretty happy with my first Monaco Grand Prix qualifying session,” said Haryanto. “I got a good lap, which was pretty on the edge and exciting to be honest.

“It wasn’t easy because the tyre temperatures were dropping all the time. Obviously, every position counts here, so although I’ll be starting near the back, it’s one place closer when situations arise out on track.

“And there’ve been plenty of those, as we saw with two red flags in the Q1 session alone. So into tonight we’ll be taking a look at what strategy can help us to take advantage of those opportunities in the race tomorrow.

“I’m really looking forward to it. As we know, at Monaco anything can happen so I’m approaching the race ready to take advantage of every place that may be up for grabs.”
