2016 Manor: qualified 20th, finished 16th

Pascal Wehrlein was one of three rookie drivers on the 2016 Formula One grid and is highly rated by his backers, Mercedes. Wehlein won the DTM championship for the German marque in 2015 and also tested for the manufacturer’s Formula One team that year.

After a successful career in the lower formulae, which included the ADAC Formel Masters title in 2011, and then his DTM crown, Mercedes placed Wehrlein at Manor for his Formula One debut last season and the 21-year-old German produced some sparkling performances.

The highlight of his 2016 season was undoubtedly his tenth place finish at the Austrian Grand Prix, which gave Manor its second-ever points scoring result.

Wehrlein will be looking to continue his impressive form under the watching eye of Toto Wolff and Mercedes.
