Spaniard Roberto Merhi and Canadian Robert Wickens will contest their second season in the DTM next year aboard C-Coupe DTM cars.
Last year's champion of the European Formula 3 series, Mehri this year drives the No. 23 Mercedes sponsored by “Junge Sterne”. His best result so far this season has been an 11th place in Zandvoort.
Wickens, from Toronto is the reigning Formula Renault 3.5 series' champion. He drives the No. 20 “stern” car this season.
Wickens so far this year finished three times in the Top 10, and took one ninth and two seventh places at the Norisring, Oschersleben and the Nurburgring.
For both drivers, it was a first experience aboard tin top race cars.
