Pascal Wehrlein was pleased with his performance at his first United States Grand Prix for Manor Racing MRT.

The German started the Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in twentieth, he was able to progress to seventeenth, ahead of team-mate Esteban Ocon. Manor were the final drivers to cross the chequered flag, after there was four retirements. Unlike Ocon, Wehrlein was only one lap behind race winner Lewis Hamilton.

Wehrlein is really pleased with his weekend after a few challenging moments, including missing first practice and spinning out of the third session, and he hopes to continue this positive form into the Mexican Grand Prix.

“I’m really pleased with my weekend here,” said Wehrlein. “There were some challenging moments, but I’m happy with how we overcame those to have a good qualifying and now race today.

“The race itself was very straightforward. I think we got the most from the car, so given that I missed quite a bit of track time, it was a good result.  We found some time to do some really fun things with the team. At the same time as working hard for the racing, so overall it’s been a great weekend. My thanks to the team and I hope we can continue like this into Mexico next week.”
