Pascal Wehrlein has announced his immediate departure from the Mahindra Formula E team and is now expected to switch to Porsche.

Wehrlein has been linked with a move to the German manufacturer for the 2020-21 Formula E season, but asserts that he “can't say much” about his situation.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, Wehrlein wrote: “From today onwards I will no longer be part of Mahindra Racing

“My interest was to finish the season but the current situation didn’t allow so. I can’t say much about my future but will keep you informed.”

Wehrlein joined Mahindra for the 2018-19 season, scoring a second place finish in just his second outing in the Formula E championship.

He finished 12th in the standings in his maiden year and scored a best result of fourth in the 2019-20 season before the series was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Prior to his Formula E career, Wehrlein spent two years in Formula 1, scoring a best result of 8th at the 2017 Spanish Grand Prix for Sauber

    I just can't believe how bad his career went from the moment he joined Sauber. He wasn't that good to say he smashed Ericcson, then Force India chose Ocon not him tellin, the French has got a better dialogue with the team, this was a crucial moment of his F1 career ending. He was promising driver, I thought we might do better. But today I believe Ocon is probably more talented driver and they chose right... what an irony, both are out of F1 now (Ocon be back back now is now).
