By the way, is hartly all there? He seems pretty odd when he does an interview. Kind of weird.

He looks like Macaulay Culkin from Home Alone.

So is Wehrlein really an option for Williams? Don't they need a driver over 25 because of the Martini sponsorship?

Sauber opt to drop Wehrlein for 2018

October 31 2017

Sauber have decided to drop Pascal Wehrlein at the end of the season so F2 champion and Ferrari reserve Charles Leclerc can join the team.

According to the well-respected Blick reporter Roger Benoit, Sauber will head into next season with Marcus Ericsson and Leclerc, meaning Wehrlein and another Ferrari hopeful in Antonio Giovinazzi would be left without a seat.

Ericcson has yet to score a World Championship point this season, but the Swede's backers are the same as those who pump cash into the Sauber F1 team and has reportedly been retained for predominantly that reason.

Sauber's renewed relationship with Ferrari, once the engine deal with Honda was cancelled, has allowed the opportunity for the Scuderia to use the Swiss team as a feeder to help blood their youngsters into Formula 1.

Leclerc has been given plenty of FP1 outings at Sauber in preparation for a full-time role with the team and Blick believe the announcement of Leclerc and Ericsson will be made in November.

Wehrlein is considered an outsider for a seat at Williams, who are also yet to reveal their 2018 line-up, but the German could be forced back into DTM with Mercedes before the Silver Arrows leave the series at the end of next year.

No way. He's too pretty to be a Williams man. At the moment we've got the Incredible Hulk and Tracey Ullman. We should swap Ullman with the rebuilt, robotic Pole. Proper ugly drivers for Williams F1.

And this is why team 'don't like' Wehrlein: (from Planet F1)

"I think my sporting performance now has no effect," Wehrlein told Auto Hebdo.

"The races here and in Abu Dhabi will not be decisive. We will not score points and everyone knows that.

"I would say that Williams is my only option for 2018. I was told pretty early on that there would probably be no room at Sauber next year.

"And if I miss next season, then returning to Formula 1 after that would be very difficult."

"If you do not have any sponsors, it's not possible to organise a cockpit today on your own. It doesn't work," Wehrlein added.

"If my family could pay five to 10 million it would be different, but they cannot."

It's quite funny he is complaining of not getting a drive without money, I assume the only reason he was at Sauber was Merc backing? As soon as Force India picked Ocon ahead of him his number was up.

There is no getting away from the fact that Ericcson is@#$%&but F1 has always had@#$%&pay drivers like him, that'll never change.
