Mercedes-Benz gave five talented drivers an opportunity to gain experience of the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé during testing near the Spanish town of Jerez de la Frontera from December 2nd – 4th. This test for Felix Rosenqvist (23, Sweden), Esteban Ocon (18, France) and Lucas Auer (20, Austria) was to reward them for outstanding achievements in Formula 3.
