Mercedes-AMG DTM


"I had my first test in a DTM car in the winter of 2002 after impressing Mercedes by winning the German Formula 3 series which supported the DTM at that time. After a successful test I was recruited by Mercedes, racing for Team Rosberg in a 2002 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK for 2003. After some very good showings in the old machinery I was promoted to the works HWA team for 2004. I won 3 races that year and finished runner up in the championship. In 2005 I went 1 step better and won the championship, winning another 5 races along the way."

"I have competed for Mercedes-Benz in the DTM ever since re-joining with them after a season out in 2006."
