The debut of Indonesian racer Rio Haryanto at the first Grand Prix Formula-1 race held at Albert Park Circuit, Melbourne, Australia, must stop at Lap 18.

The Manor Racing F1 racer, who began from number 22, managed to move to number 18 following the accident between Fernando Alonso and Esteban Gutierrez.

Unfortunately, due to technical troubles in his car, Rio could not finish the race.

The Manor Racing team said they let down Indonesian rookie Rio Haryanto after his Formula One debut was cut short by mechanical problems at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on Sunday.

Haryanto, his country’s first-ever F1 driver, pulled out of the race on the 18th of the 57-lap GP after his Manor car experienced driveline problems.

It capped an eventful weekend for the 23-year-old F1 novice, who incurred a three-place grid penalty for crashing in pitlane as he went out for a practice session on Saturday.

But Manor team chief Dave Ryan said the team took some of the blame for Haryanto’s mishap in the season-opening race at Albert Park.

“After the red flag (race stopped) things took a turn for the worse, starting with the problem that led to Rio’s retirement," Ryan said.

“We let him down today so reliability will be our highest priority ahead of the next race in Bahrain and at the same time, we have to look at where we’ve lost out in performance terms."
