His visit on 20 October will not be just for courtesy reasons, since he will also have a job to do – chauffeuring a Mercedes-Benz “race taxi” around the Hockenheim circuit with passengers willing to live the experience.

“I’m really looking forward to attending the DTM finale at Hockenheim and making a return to the DTM paddock. I’ve always been part of the Mercedes-Benz family right from the start of my career in motor racing. During my two years in the Formula 3 Euro Series, I was really in my element on those DTM weekends. The DTM is a highly professional racing series that pulls in unbelievably enthusiastic crowds, which makes it the perfect environment for young drivers to take the first steps in their career. I have very fond memories of my time in the DTM environment and am curious to see how many faces I will recognize in the Hockenheim paddock.” said Hamilton.

One of the passengers will be chosen via a competition organized by regional German broadcaster SWR3. German-speakers who would like to have a go should check out their website or Facebook page from Monday 14th October onwards.
