Monday, 08 November 2010

Jakarta – Where Rio is going to race in 2011, really depend on the trial test on 16 November 2010. As we know, Rio is able to reach top five in GP3 series season this year, which brought our Pertamina racer to test Formula 1 car owned by Virgin racing team.

If he can make an impressive time while driving VR01 formula 1 car in Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi, he will be promoted to GP2, said Rio's manager, Piers Hunnisett.

“We will see the test result. Please remember Rio is still so young and don't put him so much pressure, let him naturally reach his potential” said Hunnisett.

The British promoter also mentioned that Rio is in the right track. He can only give guidance and recommendations to his 'student'.

“For sure we are targeting Rio to reach F1, and hopefully with all his efforts, it will lead him there,” he said. (*)
