Roberto Merhi Gives Up Formula Renault 3.5 Drive To Focus On F1

Roberto Merhi has said that he will no longer be taking part in the remaining rounds of the Formula Renault 3.5 series with Pons, in order to focus on his commitments to the Manor F1 team for the remainder of the season.

Merhi was 12th in the championship standings and last contested the Red Bull Ring round, where he was disqualified and given a one-race ban for his actions post-race, where he slowed at the finish line and caught out fellow competitor Nicholas Latifi.

His replacement at Pons for this weekends round at the Nurburgring is GP2 driver Rene Binder.
