Pascal Wehrlein (born 18 October 1994 in Sigmarigen, Tubingen, Baden-Württemberg, Germany) is a German racing driver who will drive for the Sauber F1 Team during the 2017 Formula One season.[1]

Wehrlein has previously served as reserve driver of the Mercedes team, having been rewarded by the German manufacturer for becoming the youngest DTM race winner, when he won at the Lausitzring.[2] He was also announced to be a test driver for Force India, completing several tests for the team.[3] He had his first season of Formula One in 2016 at the Manor Racing F1 Team.[4][5] Wehrlein had backing from Mercedes, and came to F1 as the reigning DTM Champion.

In addition to his DTM achievements, Wehrlein was 2011 ADAC Formel Masters champion.

Formula One CareerEdit

Wehrlein started his racing career in karting, progressing through several Championships to the ADAC Formel Masters Championship in 2010, before claiming that title in 2011. His career then moved into the Formula 3 Euro Series for 2012, with Wehrlein just beaten to the title by Daniel Juncadella. The German then moved to the DTM with Mercedes, becoming the youngest race winner in 2014, before winning the 2015 Championship on the eve of his 21st birthday.

Mercedes Motivation: 2014 - 2015Edit

Wehrlein's success with Mercedes in DTM saw him rewarded with a series of tests for the Mercedes Grand Prix team in 2014, before stepping up to a full reserve driver role in 2015. During 2015, Wehrlein would also complete several tests for Force India alongside rival Juncadella, having joined the revived Mercedes Young Driver Programme with Christian Vietoris and Robert Wickens.

Moving Manors: 2016Edit

His DTM Championship victory saw Wehrlein immediately rumoured to be joining Manor Racing, particularly after it was revealed that the British team would be using Mercedes engines in 2016. Yet, neither team nor driver commented until the 10th of February 2016, when Wehrlein was confirmed as the lead driver for Manor for 2016, with #94 as his race number, the same as the German had used in the DTM.[6] The deal itself was arranged by Mercedes Boss Toto Wolff, which also allowed Manor access to use Mercedes' wind tunnel.[7] He scored his first point in the Austrian Grand Prix, having finished tenth.
