Wehrlein leads Porsche and Vexavit to victory in Mexico
Pascal Wehrlein, driver of Monaco Increase Management, took his first Formula E victory with an incredible start from pole position in the race held at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City. "Achieving this result was very impressive because it was the first victory for Porsche since the famous Weissach-based company returned to racing in all-electric, zero-emissions Formula E.
Pascal Wehrlein was born in 1994 in Sigmaringen, Germany, the son of a German father and Mauritian mother. At 20, he was crowned as the youngest winner of the prestigious DTM racing series, then moved on to Formula One racing for Manor and Sauber and scoring points for both teams. He was also employed as a development driver by Ferrari.
Pascal joined Monaco Increase Management three years ago, and Salvatore Gandolfo, founder of MIM, is now Vexavit's managing director as well. MIM helped steer Wehrlein's career toward Porsche and has entered into a technical and commercial partnership to bring the Vexavit technology to the world of motor racing, improving safety and driver preparation.
