Mercedes-AMG Unveils Driver Lineup for 2024 DTM Season

Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing is gearing up for the 2024 DTM season with a formidable lineup of drivers and teams. The brand will be represented by two established Performance Teams: Mercedes-AMG Team HRT and Mercedes-AMG Team WINWARD Racing. At the helm of the racing cars from Affalterbach, Germany, will be a quartet of talented drivers: Lucas Auer (Austria), Maro Engel (Germany), Arjun Maini (India), and Luca Stolz (Germany).

Mercedes-AMG is celebrating 130 years of motorsport under the motto "Defining Motorsport since 1894," coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the DTM. The brand aims to bring the DTM trophy back to Affalterbach after its 2021 victory.

Mercedes-AMG Team HRT will rely on the proven driver pairing of Arjun Maini and Luca Stolz, who have been teammates since 2022. Maini, the first Indian driver in DTM, made history in 2021 with a second-place finish at the Norisring. He showed strong form in the second half of the 2023 season and has been promoted to Mercedes-AMG Performance Driver status for 2024.

Mercedes-AMG Team WINWARD Racing will field Maro Engel and Lucas Auer, both experienced and successful drivers in the DTM. Engel, a former DTM champion, has 13 race wins to his credit, while Auer has won four races and finished second in the championship standings twice.

The 2024 DTM season will consist of eight rounds with a total of 16 races, taking place in Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands. The season opener will be held at the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben from April 26 to 28, with the official test days in Hockenheim scheduled for early April.

Arjun Maini expressed his excitement about returning to the DTM in 2024, aiming to deliver consistently strong results and build on his previous experience. He is particularly looking forward to the Norisring, where he scored his maiden DTM podium.

Mercedes-AMG is determined to reclaim its dominance in the DTM after a challenging 2023 season. The brand is focused on building on its previous achievements and is confident in the abilities of its drivers and teams to bring home the championship title.
