Pascal Wehrlein, Mercedes, DTM, Hockenheimring, 2015
Wehrlein delivered in the DTM
The DTM may be an unusual route to F1, but Jack is impressed with Wehrlein’s credentials:

I’ve watched all three of his seasons in DTM, he is an excellent driver, though the DTM is hard to judge.

The whole grid is generally within 1.5 seconds, meaning championships are won on consistency over sheer mass of wins. He’s extremely calm behind the wheel, lending itself to this consistency. Last year he was by far the highest placed Mercedes driver, second highest, interestingly, was Paul di Resta.
