Formula 1 reject Pascal Wehrlein says he does not want to return to the top flight in order to race at the back of the field.
The once highly-rated and Mercedes-backed driver lost his race seat after stints at Manor and Sauber, and he now races in Formula E. At the Saudi Arabia opener last weekend, he finished a best of 11th.
Wehrlein has also been linked with a return to F1 for 2021 with the prospective new Spanish team headed by Adrian Campos.
“Formula 1 is always tempting,” the 25-year-old, who this year has been a Ferrari development driver, told t-online.de. “But it has to be the right opportunity. I would not want to race right at the back just to get back into F1.”
The German admitted that 2021 would be the earliest date for his comeback, “There is still plenty of time before then, so I can still look, listen and think about everything.
Big Question: Does Pascal have unfinished business in F1?
