Pascal Wehrlein is excited to be heading to his first Hungarian Grand Prix as a Formula 1 driver this weekend.

The Manor Racing driver had a disappointing British Grand Prix after retiring early from the race after spinning out at turn one after hitting one of the deeper puddles, becoming a passenger in his own car and ending up beached in the gravel trap.

Wehrlein has only completed one race at the Hungaroring back in 2014 during his three-year DTM Series career, but even without much experience at the circuit, the German believes Manor can push themselves at every circuit they race at.

“These next two races are really good ones,” said Wehrlein. “If anything, things will be hotting up for me, rather than calming down.

“The Hungarian Grand Prix is always an exciting event and then of course it’s my home Grand Prix – the one I’ve been most looking forward to. It will also be the busiest so far for me, so maybe after that a little break will be nice. I intend to enjoy it.”

“I’ve only raced at the Hungaroring once before,” added Wehrlein. “But obviously many times at the Hockenheimring. Both are great tracks for different reasons and of course Germany will have a special significance as the first home race of my F1 career.

“First of many, I hope! Knowing a race track does have its advantages but, really, we push just as hard at every track we race at.”
