Former F1 driver and 2015 DTM Champion, Pascal Wehrlein made the transition to the world’s first all-electric street racing championship in 2019. He joins Mahindra Racing for the second consecutive year for the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, piloting the #94 M6Electro.

The 24-year-old driver, who has dual nationality in Germany and Mauritius, began his career in karting in 2003, claiming numerous wins and podium finishes before being crowned ADAC Kart Masters KF2 Class Champion in 2009.

Moving to single-seater series ADAC Formula Masters, Wehrlein won the 2011 title in his second season before taking the accolade of top rookie in the 2012 F3 European Championship. His success continued that season as he finished second overall in the Formula 3 Euro Series, while also claiming an impressive fourth place at the notoriously challenging Macau Grand Prix.

In 2013, Wehrlein became the youngest driver to compete in DTM, a series in which he continued to create history. In 2014, at the age of 19, Wehrlein became the youngest driver to claim pole position and win a DTM race. He followed this with a stunning 2015 season, in which he became the youngest driver to take the title at the age of just 20.

Coinciding with his DTM success, Formula One came knocking in 2014 and he was announced as development and simulator driver for the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team. He was reserve driver for the team the following year and also supported Sahara Force India with test driver responsibilities.

In 2016, he switched teams to Manor Racing and had his first F1 race outing, completing a full 21-race season for the outfit. A second Formula One season followed in 2017 with Sauber F1, where he scored points for the team. In 2018, he returned to DTM with Mercedes-AMG and joined Scuderia Ferarri in 2019 as a Development Driver.

After joining Mahindra Racing and Formula E in 2019 ahead of season five, Wehrlein quickly made an impact in his rookie season, achieving six Super Pole appearances and a podium finish in Santiago.
