Pascal Wehrlein is increasingly far from his debut in Formula 1 in 2016. The German rider and current champion of the DTM has seen as his options fall after the lack of understanding between Mercedes and Manor. Despite the collaboration between the two parties leading the british team to ride the power units of the signature of Stuttgart, what is certain is that the possibility of Pascal Wehrlein as a pilot of the team is complicated. Toto Wolff does not want to put a hard for this reason, and Manor F1 needs to have the budget of its pilots to adjust accounts.
has explained Toto Wolff in ‘Motorsport.com’. The pattern of the team Mercedes-AMG has once again confirmed the position in reference to the position of Pascal Wehrlein: “does Not provide any financial amount to reach an agreement with the team Manor. The team’s owner, Stephen Fitzpatrick told me that they need money, so that they have no other option”. A very clear position and that indicates that, despite the steps forward taken by Manor F1 in relation to the incorporation of a new chassis and a new power unit, the economic situation of the team remains committed.
With Wehrlein almost discarded if the positions of both formations do not change, the seats of Manor F1 continue to be an item coveted by several pilots. While Wehrlein recited in DTM, Will Stevens is the rider with the greatest potential to repeat in the team british. Roberto Merhi, Rio Haryanto, with the budget of the government of Indonesia in doubt, and Alexander Rossi are the other three pilots that opositan to occupy the second seat of the team. With different premises, assumptions and objectives is difficult to assess which has the best possibilities. it Is estimated that Roberto Merhi would need around eight million euros.
