Monza will mark the first time the DTM will race with GT3 cars, having ditched Class One machinery over the winter following Audi's factory withdrawal from the series.

The DTM is aiming to be the fastest GT3 series in the world by exploiting Balance of Performance of regulations to boost the performance of the cars in use.

There will be a total of 19 drivers on the grid this weekend, representing 11 teams and five manufacturers.

Two former champions will line up at Monza, namely Mike Rockenfeller and Marco Wittmann, with Rene Rast having left the series and Gary Paffett due to clashing commitments with Mercedes in Formula E.

Formula 1 podium finisher Alex Albon will make his DTM debut behind the wheel of an AlphaTauri-liveried Ferrari, run by the Italian marque's long-time GT racing partner AF Corse.

Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Ferrari and Lamborghini make up the list of manufacturers.
