Mercedes reveals all

Mercedes-Benz has announced its plans for the coming season in the DTM series with regular drivers Bernd Schneider, Jean Alesi and Gary Paffett being joined by Mika Hakkinen and Jamie Green in the 2005 cars. Canadian Bruno Spengler will join Persson Motorsport and will drive a 2004 car. Persson will run Green's car on race weekends, although this will be prepared by HWA.

There will be another 2004 Mercedes run for Stefan Mucke by his father Peter's Mucke Motorsport operation. There is no word yet on what will happen to last year's drivers Jarek Janis, who was keen to get a drive in the Champ Car World Series, but Markus Winkelhock is returning to single-seater racing in the World Series by Renault, having landed a deal with Draco. The team won last year's Euro 3000 series.
