Last round of testing.
The start of the season is fast approaching. On Tuesday, 5 April 2016, the Mercedes-AMG DTM Team tackled the last round of testing before the start of the new DTM season on the weekend of 6th-8th May. Lucas Auer, Maximilian Götz, Daniel Juncadella and Esteban Ocon took their places in their Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM cars for the first of four days of testing within the context of the official ITR tests at the Hockenheimring. Overall, the four Mercedes-AMG DTM drivers covered 359 laps of the 4.574-kilometre circuit during the two test sessions (9 am-12 noon & 2 pm-6 pm) which equates to 1,642 km.
The same four drivers will continue testing for the Mercedes-AMG DTM Team on Wednesday before Paul Di Resta, Gary Paffett, Christian Vietoris and Robert Wickens take over on Thursday and Friday.
