Career

Wehrlein competing in the 2014 DTM season.

Karting

Born in Sigmaringen to a German father and Mauritian mother,[4] Wehrlein began karting in 2003 and raced only in his native Germany for the majority of his career, working his way up from the junior ranks to progress through to the KF2 category by 2009, when he finished on fifth position in ADAC Kart Masters.[5][6]

ADAC Formel Masters

2010 saw his debut in the ADAC Formel Masters championship with ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg e.V. (also known as Mücke Motorsport). Wehrlein finished sixth in the championship with win at Sachsenring and another three podiums.[7][8] He remained in series with the team for the next year. Wehrlein scored seven wins at Oschersleben, Sachsenring, Zolder, Nürburgring and Lausitz on his way to championship title.

Formula 3 Euro Series

In 2012, Wehrlein stepped up to the Formula 3 Euro Series, continuing with Mücke Motorsport.[9] He finished 2nd in the championship to Daniel Juncadella.

DTM (2013–2015)

Wehrlein made his debut in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) in 2013 at the age of 18. In a career spanning three seasons Wehrlein managed to be one of the leading drivers in the field despite his youthful age.

In his debut season he achieved 3 points finishing 22nd in the championship. He also achieved his first of two fastest laps in his career.

In 2014 he switched teams to HWA where became the youngest driver in the series history to claim pole position and win a race on route to 8th in the championship with 46 points collected. Besides his stand out victory at Lausitz, Wehrlein second best result of the season was a fifth-place finish at Norisring.

In 2015 DTM returned to running two races per race weekend, resulting in 18 rounds in the 2015 championship. Due to the inconsistency of most teams and drivers Wehrlein won the title easily having scored in all round except for three. He achieved 5 podiums, one fastest lap and two wins. He is the first driver to win the championship having not claimed a pole position throughout his championship season while also being the youngest ever DTM champion.
