Curtain going up on new season.
The curtain is going up on the 2016 motor racing season. The brand with the three-pointed star officially opened the new motor racing year at a special media event in the “Hallowed Halls” in Fellbach near Stuttgart. Formula One and DTM drivers and their management teams looked ahead to the tasks that face them this year against the backdrop of treasures from the successful motor racing heritage at Mercedes-Benz. The 2015 motor racing season was the most successful to date in the annals of the brand with 19 championship titles in Formula One, DTM, Formula 3, GP3 and in the AMG Customer Sports Programme. The hunt for success begins all over again this year for the Mercedes-Benz motor racing family.
The Silver Arrows of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will line up in the Australian Grand Prix next weekend (March 18th-20th) to get the new Formula One season under way, while the DTM drivers will begin their hunt for points this season on the weekend of May 6th-8th in a home race for Mercedes-Benz at Hockenheim.
