F1 Monaco GP: Haryanto kisses wall on Monaco F1 debut

Rio Haryanto out paces Pascal Wehrlein but ends his first day in Monaco as an F1 driver with heavy damage to his Manor.
Rio Haryanto says he is frustrated to lose much of his FP2 session after crashing at the notorious chicane and damaging his Manor Racing car.

Though not his first appearance at the Principality where he raced in GP2, Haryanto is making his Monaco debut with F1 power, the Indonesian showing favourably against team-mate Pascal Wehrlein.

However, though Haryanto would end the session ahead of the German and in range of the Saubers, he'd lose track time when the Manor snapped under braking on the bump leading to the chicane. Hitting the wall before coming to a halt, though Haryanto was unhurt in the crash, he was disappointed at being unable to build on his pace.

“I feel alright, just a bit unfortunate that we couldn't finish the run program. Looking at the car damage, it isn't too bad, it's quite minor. I just lost it at Turn 10 because it's quite bumpy and tricky. I was on the Ultra-Soft tyre on my second pushing lap, and I just lost the rear as it snapped.

“It just went into the wall. It's a shame that happened, because we didn't get to do a long run but looking at the performance today, we're not that far from the Sauber.”
