On 4 May in Hockenheim, the final chapter in the DTM story of the Stuttgart-based brand starts with the opening race of the 2018 German Touring Car Masters. Because the brand will be withdrawing from the racing series at the end of the season. “These pictures evoke highs and lows with every emotion,” says Toto Wolff. “At the same time, we are totally motivated to win the trophy again in the 2018 season.” All six drivers leave no doubts about this, either: Lucas Auer, Paul Di Resta, Daniel Juncadella, Edoardo Mortara, Gary Paffett and Pascal Wehrlein. Each of them wants to be crowned champion in a Mercedes-Benz this year - so the season ahead promises to be an extremely exciting one.
