VIP visitor to final race of the DTM season at Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg: MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS driver Lewis Hamilton will be a special guest of Mercedes-Benz on 20th October. The Formula 1 driver will not only be fitting in a visit to the world’s most popular touring car series between F1 Grand Prix races in Japan and India but will also be performing chauffeuring duties. Hamilton will be driving passengers around the track in a Mercedes-Benz DTM ‘race taxi’, providing them with a unique experience of lapping the Hockenheimring in a DTM racing car. Hamilton is already familiar with the DTM paddock from the time before he made the step up to Formula 1. In the 2004 and 2005 seasons, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS driver competed in the Formula 3 Euro Series which takes place as part of the DTM weekend.

He won the 2005 title driving a Dallara Mercedes for the ASM team. In the 20 races that year, Hamilton had 17 podium finishes and 15 wins, all powered by a Mercedes-Benz Formula 3 engine.

Hamilton will be driving a Mercedes-Benz DTM ‘race taxi’ around the Hockenheimring on Sunday.
I’m really looking forward to attending the DTM finale at Hockenheim.

“I’m really looking forward to attending the DTM finale at Hockenheim and making a return to the DTM paddock”, said Lewis. “I’ve always been part of the Mercedes-Benz family right from the start of my career in motor racing. During my two years in the Formula 3 Euro Series, I was really in my element on those DTM weekends. The DTM is a highly professional racing series that pulls in unbelievably enthusiastic crowds, which makes it the perfect environment for young drivers to take the first steps in their career. I have very fond memories of my time in the DTM environment and am curious to see how many faces I will recognise in the Hockenheim paddock.”
