Lausitz: Mercedes-Benz preview

Paul Di Resta:

"With its high-speed straights and the fairly slow, angular bends in the infield, this circuit is technically very demanding. So we have to find a compromise between top speed and downforce in the setup. Last year I started here from pole position. I won my first DTM race at the Lausitzring and posted the fastest lap. Hockenheim was disappointing for us. We want to do better here."

Ralf Schumacher:

"Ninth position in the DTM season opening race at Hockenheim was certainly what was not expected neither by the media, the fans nor by me. I'll be better at the Lausitzring."

Maro Engel:

"I wasn't certain of being given a seat in 2009, which made it even better to get into the points rankings at Hockenheim and justify the faith placed in me. I want to build on that. "

Norbert Haug:

"Our record at the Lausitzring looks fantastic. Since DTM was relaunched in 2000, we've won seven out of nine races there, with successive victories in the last three years. But we're certainly not travelling to EuroSpeedway as favourites this time. After the DTM premiere in Hockenheim, we're clearly coming from behind. But the whole team is determined to improve at the Lausitzring."
