Formula 1 star Brendon Hartley has tied the knot.

The Kiwi driver, who had a phenomenal breakthrough year in 2017, married fiancée Sarah on Waiheke Island yesterday.

He posted images of the wedding on his Twitter account. It's believed a number of top motorsport drivers were in attendance.

Hartley told the Herald last month that he didn't have much to do with the wedding planning.


"I haven't been so involved in the planning process," Hartley told the Herald. "I've been pretty busy so I have a good excuse.

"We have a few friends coming from Europe – I think a lot of people were looking for an excuse to have a holiday in New Zealand so it will be fun.

"We are not particularly traditional so it will be a fun time with some friends and family."

There won't be a lot of time to relax or honeymoon however as Hartley is needed back in Europe to prepare for the season ahead before the end of January.

"We have a few days after to enjoy with friends and some time to get on my mountain bike a bit," he said.

Hartley will help work on the development of the Honda power train that Toro Rosso will employ in 2018. He will get his first chance to drive a Honda-powered car in winter testing at the end of February before the first round of the championship in Melbourne in March.
