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.
