Best Mercedes driver.
Oschersleben has hosted the DTM since 2000, and this year marks the 15th running of the race at the 3.696 kilometre circuit. The track is between eleven and thirteen metres wide and has a difference in elevation of 23 metres. There are 15 turns: 7 left-handers and 8 right-handers. The race is held over 51 laps, which equates to a race distance of 188.496 kilometres. “I’ve been contesting races at Oschersleben ever since the start of my career and really like the circuit,” says Pascal Wehrlein. “I just love winding racetracks in general, and Oschersleben falls into that category with some fast turns, plus a number of slower ones. Overtaking on this circuit is one of the many challenges that need to be mastered. I was the best Mercedes driver at the season opener, so that’s a start. I aim to repeat that feat at Oschersleben.”
