The post-Newtonian formalism is developed for hybrid f(R)-gravity. The model is tested in the weak field regime of the Solar System. Using scalartensor representation of hybrid f(R)-gravity we impose restrictions on the parameters of the theory and show that hybrid f(R)-gravity is not ruled out by the observations in the weak field limit.
