With several pilots confirmed, the test of the ‘rookies’ of the DTM in Jerez will be the less interesting, especially if we look to Mercedes. The formation of Stuttgart will prove to several ex-F1 drivers and some other men that have in their DNA the history of the brand in the German Championship of passenger Cars. According to several media Danish, Kevin Magnussen will take the Mercedes-AMG C 63 and presumably will do so on the third day of testing. The former McLaren driver is looking at solutions for the future after leaving the discipline of the Formula 1 team in Woking.
In fact, Kevin Magnussen is living weeks very intense. The Danish tried a few dates the Porsche 919 Hybrid World Endurance at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. A prototype that ended up very satisfied, but that is radically different to the DTM testing at Jerez. However, it does not go unnoticed that Porsche may have a bacante not to be able to count with Nico Hülkenberg, while Mercedes might have the same problem if you finally Pascal Wehrlein makes the leap to the World of F1. it Is clear that Kevin Magnussen does not close doors or ata to anyone face-to-2016.
As is logical, will not be the only pilot that will evaluate Mercedes. As already commented, Giedo van der Garde will be another of the riders present at the test with the mark of the star. On the opposite side of the equation, two other pilots that can test the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Sebastian Asch and Luca Ludwig. Both will be able to test the model specifications 2015 after clinching the title in the ADAC GT Masters with a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3. Both are the children of Roland Asch and Klaus Ludwig, pilots Mercedes in the years 90.
