Pascal Wehrlein is pleased with his performance in the 2016 Formula 1 season so far with Manor Racing.

The German has completed a total of twelve Grand Prix with the Banbury outfit. With performing overall very well for Manor with only two retirements and managing to finish within the points at the Austrian Grand Prix, when he finished tenth.

With this one point, Manor are ahead of Sauber in the Contructors’ Championship in tenth. Wehrlein believes the team should seize the opportunity for points when it presents itself.

“The initial aim was to score at least one point this season and we already have,” he pointed out. “Thanks to that we are tenth in the standings in front of Sauber, and I don’t think we could have expected much better.

“The Austrian Grand Prix was a great moment,” Wehrlein told French magazine Auto Hebdo“Seize the opportunity when it presents itself, that is what we must continue to do.”

One of Wehrlein’s weaknesses is qualifying as he has been out-performed by team-mate Rio Haryanto on five occasions. To Wehrlein though this isn’t a major concern for him.

“Qualifying is one thing and the race another,” added Wehrlein. “Regarding the latter, it’s 11-1 in my favor, with a tenth place in Austria. You don’t score points on Saturday afternoon.”
