DTM: Oschersleben Test - Day Two.
The Mercedes-AMG DTM Team were once again in action on Wednesday, making the most of the final opportunity for testing ahead of the new season. On the second of three official test days on the DTM track at Oschersleben, the four Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM cars were driven by Daniel Juncadella, Gary Paffett, Paul Di Resta and Pascal Wehrlein. Gary Paffett was the fastest of the Mercedes-AMG drivers, finishing the day on a time of 1:20.309 minutes and in second position. During the course of the two test session, the four drivers completed 428 laps between them, equivalent to a total distance of 1,582 kilometres.
Lucas Auer, Daniel Juncadella, Paul Di Resta and Pascal Wehrlein will be putting the cars through their paces on Thursday, the third and final day of the official test week at Oschersleben.
Good days of testing.
Gary Paffett: “I’ve had two good days of testing here at Oschersleben. It’s not an easy track. It’s pretty tough on drivers and cars. We posted lots of long runs and some short runs too, trying out different setups. We made some important discoveries which will help us prepare for Hockenheim. I’m very pleased with my test week and am now looking forward to the first race weekend.”
