Pascal Wehrlein says he's ready for his date with destiny as the Mercedes F1 reserve driver attempts to become the youngest ever DTM champion in history this weekend at the Hockenheim season finale.

Wehrlein stands on the brink of claiming his first ever title in series and could wrap up the crown during the first race at the Hockenheimring if the results go the HWA driver's way.

The 20-year old has assembled a near 40 point margin over his main Audi rivals Edoardo Mortara and Mattias Ekstrom after putting together a string of consistent results while others have fallen by the wayside.

Wehrlein has only failed to score points on two occasions in 2015 and admits he's sorry to see the season drawing to a close.

"We're already approaching the final weekend at Hockenheim. On the one hand, it's sad to see the season coming to an end," said the 20-year old.

"But on the other hand, I am very happy with how the year has gone so far and that I'm in a good position in the title chase.

"Consequently, I'm looking forward to the last two races of the season in front of my friends, my family and the many fans in the Mercedes grandstand."

Along with the likely prospect of winning drivers' title, Wehrlein's HWA squad also lead the teams' table while Mercedes could yet usurp BMW to win the manufacturers' championship and scoop all three crowns.

"The whole team has delivered an outstanding performance so far. We now need to maintain this form in the last two races, so that we come away with a tangible reward," said Mercedes DTM boss Ulrich Fritz.

"We are in an excellent position to win titles in both the drivers' and the team championships. And we are still in with a chance in the manufacturers' championship.

"Because Hockenheim counts as our home race, we traditionally have the support of many fans and employees. Every seat in the Mercedes-Benz grandstand will certainly be taken.

"I am very happy about this, because after all, it's for the fans that we race our cars. I'm certainly hoping that we will give them good cause for cheer this weekend. But until then, we still have plenty of work to do."
