Pascal Wehrlein says that he will “review the first part of the season” over the summer break, after which, he will “return into the second part with full power” following a difficult start to the 2017 Formula 1 season.

The German driver sat out the first two races at Australia and China, as well as a test at Barcelona, due to a neck injury he received at the Race of Champions during the off-season. Wehrlein flipped the Polaris Slingshot he was racing against Felipe Massa, landing upside down on a barrier. Whilst he seemed unhurt at the time, a neck injury left him unsure of his strength, and he chose to sit out much of the start of the season, giving reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi a chance at the wheel.

Despite having missed two of the eleven races so far this season, Wehrlein is still above team-mate Marcus Ericsson in the Driver’s Championship, having scored points in the Spanish Grand Prix and Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

This weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix saw Wehrlein qualify in eighteenth and finish in fifteenth.

Considering my grid position, the race result is ok.

I could not have expected more starting from P18, so we definitely made the best out of today.

Wehrlein sits sixteenth in the Driver’s Championship, with the Sauber team dropping to last in the Constructor’s Championship thanks to McLaren Honda Formula 1 Team’s Fernando Alonso’s sixth place at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
