For Pascal Wehrlein, the first season in the Formula 1 World championship is assuming a kind of cure of humility. star in the DTM, the champion in title, as secondary actor with the modest team Manor, occupying the usual of the last few rows of the grid, with the tenth place achieved in the Grand Prix of Austria has been their best result.

however, the German has made clear its medium-term objective, to be a future Mercedes driver, and has been recognized in a statement to Sport Bild that his intention is nothing other than enforce their performance, wherever you are, whether Manor or any other team.

I Know that the contracts of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will expire at the end of 2018, so I have no other plan than to show in all time of my performance. If, for example, I can progress after two years with Manor would be something very good because it help to this team would have overcome a great challenge. Similarly, if with the support of Mercedes has a change of computer, you could have a companion more experienced and, if you would meet the expectations, you would have a good chance of getting a seat at Mercedes.

Wehrlein has also been recognized that the arrival to the Manor of another protégé of Mercedes, Esteban Ocon, it can become a confrontation between the two in the face of an eventual promotion to the German squad. In that moment, not seen at a disadvantage.

is Not that it is a direct duel, because there are no sites available for the upcoming season, but yes, I am sure that Mercedes wants to make a comparison between us. Until now, Stephen does not seem to be better than me, and that, in general, will have in very high esteem, which of course is good for me.
