Wehrlein still uncertain about Formula 1 future


Pascal Wehrlein is still waiting to see where his future lies as he continues to be linked with a move into Formula 1 for 2016.

The twenty-one year old German, who last weekend became the youngest ever champion of the DTM Series, admits his future is still be sorted out, with the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS reserve driver being linked to a potential Manor F1 Team seat, while a role as the full-time reserve driver with the Sahara Force India team has also been mentioned.

“I don’t know at the moment,” said Wehrlein when asked about his future. “We will celebrate our DTM title and then over the next two or three weeks, we’ll decide.”

Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport Toto Wolff has revealed discussions with Formula 1 teams have happened with regards to Wehrlein, but was unable to give any definitive answer about whether the young German would be in the sport next season.

“I can say we’ve had preliminary discussions with Formula 1 teams, but not to a stage where I would be able to confirm he’s going to go into Formula 1,” said Wolff to Autosport.
