"Obviously, I'm looking forward to the start of the season and especially to the fact that we have two races per weekend this year. We have been working hard on our preparations over the winter. For me personally, the biggest change in comparison to last year is team communication. Everything has become far more open. In addition, this will be the first time since I arrived in the DTM that I'm competing in a team that I have already spent the previous season driving for. This will also be an advantage."

Paul Di Resta (29, Scotland)

Car Number: 3
Team: SILBERPFEIL Energy Mercedes-AMG (HWA)

"After such a long winter break, it's now time to get back to action. The team has improved greatly in the past few months, and I'm hoping that the hard work of everyone involved has paid off."

Daniel Juncadella (23, Spain)

"It's a long time since I drove my last DTM race, and I'm looking forward to my third season in the DTM. We have prepared very well, and I believe that our overall package is looking much better this season. So that's all the more reason to look forward to Hockenheim. Hockenheim is a great track, and the new racing format also promises a lot of exciting action."

Gary Paffett (34, England)

Car: EURONICS Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM

"Hockenheim is a really special race for me. I've had a lot of success there, including 2004 when I won my first race. Since then I've won three times at Hockenheim. It's a place that brings a lot of fond memories for me, so I'm really looking forward to going back there with my new team, ART. Our aim is at least to be the best Mercedes. Where we go from there, we'll have to wait and see."

Robert Wickens (26, Canada)

"I think everyone is really anxious to see if we can turn the job that we did over the winter into some strong points finishes. I am very motivated. I know that everyone at Mercedes is motivated to have a strong 2015. Everything starts in Hockenheim. Hopefully our hard work is going to pay off and we can score some good points and get on the podium or win."

Christian Vietoris (26, Germany)

"I'm going to Hockenheim with some positive memories. The year before last, I got my season off to a good start there with my first DTM podium. Obviously, I'm hoping for something similar this coming weekend. Overall, the past two years have been difficult, but I've still given a good account of myself. We've done a lot of hard work over the winter, and I hope that the efforts of the entire team pay off in the end and that we have a strong season."

Maximilian Götz (29, Germany)

"My first DTM weekend is certainly going to be very exciting. Actually, I just can't wait for it to get going. I'm already getting minor palpitations! There are a lot of new impressions and experiences waiting for me. I will try to tackle the weekend in a focused manner and not to make mistakes. I am motivated and well prepared for my DTM debut. I'm already counting the hours until I can get in the cockpit again."

Lucas Auer (20, Austria)

"Next weekend, I'll be competing not only in my first two races of the year but also in my first ever races in the DTM. Hockenheim has always been one of my favourite tracks. I've had a lot of good experiences there. Let's see what my first DTM weekend has in store. My aim is to get up to speed as quickly as possible and then to work my way to the top of the ladder."
