It’s not long now until the final race weekend of the 2015 DTM season. From 16th to 18th October, Hockenheim will be staging the last two races of the campaign. For the Mercedes-AMG DTM Team, this will be a home fixture, a factor that is not lost on Silver Arrows F1 star Nico Rosberg. The MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula 1 driver will be in attendance on Sunday as the season reaches its climax on the ninth and final race weekend.
Rosberg will be urging on his Mercedes-AMG DTM team-mates as they challenge for the championship titles. Ahead of the last two races of the season, Mercedes-AMG driver Pascal Wehrlein leads the DTM drivers’ standings on 165 points, 37 ahead of Audi’s Edoardo Mortara on 128. Moreover, gooix/Original-Teile Mercedes-AMG also tops the team championship going into the finale.
In the context of his visit to Hockenheim, Nico Rosberg will be popping into the Mercedes-Benz Erlebniswelt centre and signing autographs. Rosberg will also be answering questions from journalists at a press conference in the Baden-Württemberg Center on Sunday (start time: 1pm).
Nico Rosberg: “The DTM finale is guaranteed to be a thriller, and I will obviously be keeping my fingers crossed for all my Mercedes-AMG DTM team-mates, hoping for a successful end to the season. That goes especially for Pascal, who could become DTM champion for the first time in his career at Hockenheim. When he’s not competing in the DTM, Pascal is supporting Lewis and me in his role as reserve driver for the Formula 1 team. On this occasion, though, I would like offer him my support and to cheer him on from the team garage. I am already looking forward to two exciting races. You can do it, Pascal!”
