Start of the season approaching
The start of the season is fast approaching. On Friday, the Mercedes-AMG DTM Team brought the curtain down on the final week of testing before the start of the season at Hockenheim. Paul Di Resta, Gary Paffett, Christian Vietoris and Robert Wickens were again in action, as on the previous day. In addition, Daniel Juncadella completed yet another tyre test for Hankook during the afternoon. The four Mercedes-AMG DTM drivers covered 437 laps of the 4.574-kilometre Hockenheim circuit on the final day of testing. The drivers notched up 7,885 km in total (1,724 laps) over the four days in their Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM cars.
The eight Mercedes-AMG DTM drivers will next be in action on Friday 6 May during the season-opening weekend of the 2016 DTM season when a home race for Mercedes-Benz is on the programme at Hockenheim.
