Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM Team: A newcomer, four well-known faces and a repat!

The Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM Team starts into the 2017 season with a newcomer, four well-known faces and a repat. A new asset to the Mercedes-AMG Motorsport family is last year’s DTM Vice-Champion Edorado Mortara. He will be teamed-up with Lucas Auer, Paul Di Resta, Gary Paffett and Robert Wickens – four other DTM-race winners who all already have got several years of experience comes to driving for the team. Team captain Gary Paffett is the man in the line-up with the biggest DTM experience under his belt. The 2005 DTM Champion is going contest his 14th DTM season, this year. “We improved step by step, last year,” said the Briton, “And we succeeded in forming a strong team of engineers, mechanics and drivers. Building on that is something I particularly look forward to, in 2017.” The second new signing of the team is a repat: in 2017, the former DTM driver and FIA GT World Champion Maro Engel will make his DTM comeback. Engel already competed for the Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM team in DTM from 2008 to 2011. The driver line-up for 2017 will be completed by Maximilian Günther who finished second in the 2016 FIA Formula 3 European Championship. He will be the team’s test and reserve driver. “The 2017 season certainly will bring major challenges for every manufacturer,” said Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM Team Principal Ulrich Fritz. “We have got a new car, new tyres and a smaller grid. This means that the level of competitiveness will be even higher than it used to be in DTM. Therefore, I am particularly delighted with having such a high-quality driver line-up.” With 10 drivers’ titles, 175 race wins and 122 pole positions, Mercedes-Benz is the clearly most successful manufacturer in the history of DTM. And the most successful driver in the history of the sport, Bernd Schneider, also raced for the brand with the star. The DTM Record Champion won his five titles in the years 1995, 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2006. The last driver’s championship won by Mercedes-AMG to date was the one in 2015, courtesy of today‘s Formula One driver Pascal Wehrlein.
