Despite the fact that after two years of performances in F1 for Pascal Wehrlein was no place on the starting grid of the 2018 season, the Germans do not lose heart, because in the history of the championship to ten of his compatriots have made comeback to the Big Prizes.
Of course, the most famous return of German drivers in F1 is an example of Michael Schumacher, who returned in 2010 for Mercedes after three years after a career in a Ferrari.
Still fresh in the memory of his return to Formula 1, Nico Hulkenberg, Adrian Sutil and Timo Glock. This is a good example for Wehrlein also because of comebacks after these pilots had more than one season.
After a debut in 2010, Hulkenberg had a year to forget about F1, but only to ensure that in 2012-m to return to the championship in the composition of the Force India and to make it to this day.
Sutil rest from F1 in 2012, and then returned to the camp of the Force India. If we talk about the Glock, its debut in the Big Prizes came in 2004. After that, he had to wait for three years, but it was worth it: from 2008 to 2012 Timo spent five full campaigns in the Toyota, Virgin and Marussia.
Three comeback in F1 made Hans Herrmann and Edgar Barth and Wolfgang Sagely managed to return to Big Prizes twice.
The short term return of German pilots in F1 belongs to Stommelen Rolf, Jochen Mass and Christian Danner.
Thus, if you consider the fact that Wehrlein is only 23 years old and he showed very good results, the probability of its return to F1 is quite high.
