Wehrlein joins Sauber

Pascal Wehrlein (22) is the 28th driver and also another German racer to sign with the Swiss located Formula 1 team Sauber. Previous names who have raced for Sauber include Nick Heidfeld, Sebastian Vettel and Nico Hülkenberg.


Sauber made way for Wehrlein by pushing Felipe Nasr out of the way. Wehrlein's debut season was with Manor with whom he got one point from the race in Austria. Wehrlein's teammate will be the Swede, Marcus Ericsson.


The team wants to give Wehrlein the chance to gain experience. They believe they have a driver with great potential and who is superior to Ericsson. Sauber want to improve on their last couple of seasons by reaching more mid-placed finishes. As the season goes on, they want to become regular points contenders.
