A prominent guest at the DTM season finale: Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton was the star guest at Sunday’s final round of the season at Hockenheim, and not merely as a spectator.
The Mercedes-Benz driver also completed a few laps with the DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé. As a taxi driver, he gave some fans a great time, and himself, too, as it was a premiere.
“I have never driven a DTM car before,” the 2008 Formula 1 World Champion said before climbing into the cockpit.
The 28-year old is keeping a close eye on the DTM and could envisage racing in the series himself one day.
“There are some drivers who have made the transfer to the DTM. That is definitely something one is thinking about,” said Hamilton, who only found positive words: “The DTM is a great series, it is Formula 1 of the closed-top cars. This series doesn’t have to copy anything from anywhere.” (DTM)
