It seems Manor Racing Team were not content with just bringing joy to the hearts of 250 million Indonesians by giving Rio Haryanto the opportunity to become the first ever Indonesian F1 driver. Today they went one step further and released their new car which pays homage to the most beloved method of transport in Indonesia, the Jakarta Metro Mini. We are reliably informed that it is the fastest method of transport to get round Jakarta. A very good sign for the MRT05!
Rumors that the team are now serving options of Nasi Goreng or Rio Haryanto’s personal favorite Rendang in the team canteen have yet to be verified.
Many thanks to the eagle eyed @arief_fadhilah on Twitter for bringing this to our attention.
