Pascal Wehrlein: “Our race was pretty much as we expected”

Pascal Wehrlein was in reflective mood following the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday after a relatively quiet race to sixteenth, ahead only of his Manor Racing team-mate Rio Haryanto of the classified finishers.

The Mercedes protégé felt the upgrades brought to the Circuit de Catalunya were positive, but admitted he was still suffering with the high tyre degradation issues that has compromised his season at times.

“We got both cars to the finish, which was good, but otherwise there isn’t much more to say today; our race was pretty much as we expected,” said Wehrlein.

“The upgrades are positive but they didn’t influence the overall result at this track with the way the race panned out. We also suffered from quite high tyre degradation again, so there is still some way to go to keep improving the car.”

Wehrlein feels the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix should be a better race for the team, and is looking forward to his first experience of the legendary street circuit.

“I think the next couple of races will be a little better for us and of course Monaco is a track I’ve been most looking forward to,” said Wehrlein.

“My first race there will be something very special so we’ll keep working hard and looking forward.”
