Stuttgart, 23rd March 2010 – Ralf Schumacher (34) will start with the AMG Mercedes C-Class again in the 2010 DTM. The season’s debut race will be at Hockenheim on 25th April 2010.

Ralf Schumacher began his DTM career at Hockenheim on 13th April 2008. Soon, he became one of the most popular drivers of the championship for the fans and the media. Following a “learning year” in 2008 with a car of the previous year of team Mücke Motorsport, Ralf Schumacher changed to HWA for the last season and he will race for this team again in 2010.
Ralf Schumacher had concluded his Formula 1 career after 11 years and 180 grands prix at the end of the 2007 season. He won six grands prix and – with BMW Williams – finished both the 2001 and 2002 Drivers„ World Championships in fourth place.
Ralf Schumacher:
“It‟s great fun to race in the DTM; one of the most important reasons for this is the perfect cooperation with Mercedes-Benz and the HWA team. Therefore, I look forward to a third year in this fantastic cham-pionship.”
“At Mercedes-Benz and my team, I have the opportunity to practise motor racing at the best profes-sional level.”
“In 2010, the fans will experience a so far unique combination – my brother Michael in Formula 1 and me in the DTM, and both we will race for Mercedes-Benz – this will be an exciting motor sport season.”
Norbert Haug, Vice President Mercedes-Benz Motorsport:
“We all look very much forward to Ralf being a member of our DTM driver line-up again in 2010 and that he will enter his third season together with us.”
