Peter Mücke’s former protégés have achieved
successful motorsport careers. Six subsequent
Formula 1 drivers – Christian Klien, Robert Kubica,
Sebastian Vettel, Markus Winkelhock, Sebastien
Buemi and Sergio Pérez – previously raced in various
junior classes for his team. The racing team
from Berlin-Altglienicke entered the DTM in 2005.
In 2006 and 2007 Mücke extended its commitment
and fielded three cars and then two in each
of the two following years. In 2013 the former Formula
1 racer Ralf Schumacher switched from the
DTM cockpit to a role in the team’s management.
For the 2014 season Mücke signed Vitaly Petrov,
the first Russian driver in DTM history.
