The Manor MRT05 is a Formula One racing car designed by Manor Racing for use in the 2016 Formula One season. The car is being driven by two rookies, German Pascal Wehrlein and Indonesian Rio Haryanto.

History Edit

The MRT05 was launched at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona on 22 February 2016 in pre-season testing. It made its race debut in the 2016 Australian Grand Prix, where Wehrlein finished 16th and Haryanto retired. Earlier in the weekend, Haryanto and Romain Grosjean collided in the pitlane during free practice.

At the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix, Wehrlein qualified 12th, the first time the team had reached the second part of qualifying since Spa in 2014. During the race, Wehrlein initially fell down the order after the safety car came out on track shortly after he had pitted for fresh tyres. However, he made his set of soft compound tyres last and was closing on Valtteri Bottas for tenth place when a crash by Sergio Pérez elevated both a place, handing Wehrlein his first ever point in Formula One and Manor their first since Monaco 2014.
