Haryanto won three times during the 2015 GP2 season to finish fourth in the standings and has been linked with a drive at Manor throughout the off-season.

It is understood that Haryanto has significant backing from the Indonesian government and he is already familiar with his new team after testing for the squad when it was known as Marussia in 2012 and when it was Virgin Racing in 2010.

Haryanto, who will join up with Manor ahead of the start of winter testing in Barcelona next week, described his excitement at making his F1 debut.
