'I have a lot of fun driving in the DTM; this is not least due to the optimal cooperation with M ercedes-Benz and the HWA team, 'says Schumacher. 'That's why I'm looking forward to a third year in this great championship.'
Mercedes is the employer of the Schumacher brothers
Die The signing of the contract took a while, but there were never any real doubts about Schumacher's remaining in the DTM. It was only negotiated about details, they say. Mercedes is now the employer of both Ralf and Michael Schumacher. 'In 2010 the fans experience a previously unique constellation - my brother Michael in Formula 1 and I in the DTM, and we both start for Mercedes-Benz - it will be an exciting motorsport season.'
Mercedes too -Sport director Norbert Haug is happy about the signing of the contract and predicts the 34-year-old athletic boom 'Ralf has quickly developed into one of the audience's favorites in the series and I am sure that in 2010, after the necessary 'apprenticeship' that everyone in the DTM needs, he will improve further in terms of sport.'
Mercedes driver line-up still not official
That is now expected of him after two years in the DTM. The first to beat are his teammates at HWA. However, it is not yet clear who this will be exactly. Because Mercedes has still not officially announced the DTM driver squad for 2010. Probably like last year Bruno Spengler, Gary Paffett and Paul di Resta will start for HWA.
