Wehrlein cleared to test with Sauber this week

06 Mar 2017

Pascal Wehrlein will make his first official track appearance for new team Sauber this week, after doctors gave him the go-ahead following his recent neck injury.

Wehrlein was side-lined from last week’s pre-season test in Spain on medical advice, following his frightening-looking crash in January’s Race of Champions event in Florida.

The German will now get his first taste of Sauber’s Ferrari-powered C36 car in the second pre-season test, which takes place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on March 7-10.

Former Manor racer Wehrlein, who was replaced by Ferrari third driver Antonio Giovanizzi for last week’s session, is expected to share driving duties with new team mate Marcus Ericsson.
