Pascal to make his Formula One racing debut with Manor Racing in 2016!
21-year-old reigning DTM Champion and Mercedes-Benz Junior driver Pascal Wehrlein will get his first taste of the all-new Manor Racing MRT05 race car when it hits the track for testing in Barcelona on 22 February.
“Manor Racing is a great place for me to start my Formula One racing career - I’m very pleased to be here. It’s a small and totally focused team and I soon hope to know everyone. Though it’s my first F1 season my aim is to help Stephen and the guys achieve their goals. It will be a tough challenge but I think we should be able to challenge for points along the way. It’s going to be good fun. A word for my racing family at Mercedes-Benz, and particularly for Toto, who have guided my career this far and made this opportunity possible. Thanks for the incredible support to help me achieve my dream; now it’s down to me to grab the moment and perform on track.”
