Pascal Wehrlein has revealed discussions are taking place with Ferrari over a potential role as development driver. Wehrlein, who lost his seat with Sauber at the end of the 2017 season, recently came to the end of his contract with Mercedes and he has been searching for a new Formula One employer.

The 24-year-old German was reported to have agreed a development role with Ferrari a couple of days ago, but he has confirmed talks are still ongoing and nothing has been finalised for the moment. “The state of affairs is that talks are taking place, but nothing has yet been confirmed,” Wehrlein told German publication Motorsport-Magazin. “One of the reasons I chose Formula E was that you could also do jobs in other championships. “I already said last year that I’m very interested in doing something else besides Formula E. Working with Ferrari would of course be a very good opportunity.”
Wehrlein will be making his Formula E debut with Mahindra Racing this weekend but he is still able to have a role in F1.
