Mercedes' Pascal Wehrlein has unsurprisingly left the Lausitzring on cloud nine after scoring a maiden DTM pole-position and victory in dominant fashion.

Wehrlein proved to be the unstoppable force all weekend at the Lausitzring circuit as the 19-year old became the DTM's youngest ever winner to date.

After dramatically ousting Audi's Mattias Ekstrom from what seemed a probable pole-position, the HWA driver was then in a complete league of his own come race day, with no one able to produce an answer for Wehrlein's electrifying pace in the wet/dry conditions.

Wehrlein eventually crossed the line 15-seconds up the road from Christian Vietoris, who made it a one-two for Mercedes.

To top off an already perfect weekend for Wehrlein, the C-Coupe DTM driver was then later confirmed as Mercedes' official Formula 1 reserve driver.

"First pole, then the win. It hardly gets any better. I'm mega happy. My team worked terrifically well," said Wehrlein. "The pit stops and our strategy were all super. We waited until the track was dry enough for options, then we switched. That was definitely the right choice.

"My pace was really impressive and I was able to control the race from the front. I've had an incredible day and a fantastic week. It's all been simply fabulous."

Wehrlein admitted the only blemish on his weekend was the fact his fellow Mercedes team mate Daniel Juncadella was unable to join him on the podium after the Spaniard's long stint in third position came to an end thanks to a drive-through penalty demoting him to fourth.

"It's a pity that Daniel didn't finish on the podium today. He thoroughly deserved to and it would have been great to savour my maiden win with him by my side on the podium," he concluded.
