Haryanto in talks for 2017 return?

Rio Haryanto could be on the way back into F1 for 2017.

Haryanto lost his race seat at Manor to the Mercedes and Renault-backed Esteban Ocon in August, after his state-linked Indonesian funding dried up.

But Haryanto's mother, Indah Pennywati, has told the Antara news agency: "Yes, we are in talks with new teams to see if Rio can join them next season."

She admitted three teams had expressed interest but insisted: "I can't mention the teams."
