Changeover for 2017
Newcomer Edoardo Mortara will be driving one of the six DTM cars belonging to the team in 2017, all of which are to be entered by HWA. 'It is of course a pity that the successful collaboration with Mücke Motorsport and ART Grand Prix is not being taken any further in the DTM,' says Ulrich Fritz. 'Peter Mücke and his team have been a loyal partner to us since 2005. The way the entire Mercedes-AMG DTM Team celebrated at the Lausitzring when Mücke secured their maiden win in the series shows how much we all appreciate what Mücke Motorsport do.' In other racing series such as Formula 3, the collaboration with Mücke Motorsport continues unaffected. 'ART GP have also done an incredible job in the past two years,' stresses Fritz. 'To be right on song from the outset, despite having no prior experience of the DTM, that's something quite rare.' ART GP in the shape of Gary Paffett made five podium appearances over the past two DTM seasons.
