Wehrlein to miss first test


Pascal Wehrlein will miss the first Formula 1 test of the season because of a back injury.

The German driver was injured in a collision with Felipe Massa at the Race Of Champions exhibition in Miami in January. 

He was able to walk away from the incident but he has been advised to sit out the four-day test, which begins in Barcelona on February 27, to allow him to fully recover from his injuries. 

"I have to skip the first winter test due to medical advice because of a BACK issue. I feel sorry for the team but we'll come back stronger," Wehrlein tweeted on Friday.

A member of the Mercedes young driver academy, Wehrlein will race for Sauber this season after being overlooked for the seat left vacant by Nico Rosberg's retirement. 

Ferrari's third driver Antonio Giovinazz is expected to replace Wehrlein for the test in Barcelona.
