Mercedes-Benz confirm Jamie Green for 2012

Mercedes-Benz has announced that Jamie Green will continue his long-standing alliance with the company for 2012, piloting the beautiful DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupe.

This will be the British driver’s eighth DTM season with Mercedes-Benz, and his fifth driving for the HWA team, but the relationship stretches as far back as 1997 when Green took part in the young driver development programme created by McLaren and Mercedes-Benz. He went on to drive a Dallara-Mercedes in the 2004 Formula 3 Euro Series, before moving to tin-tops in 2005.

“I’m looking forward to bringing my experience from seven DTM seasons to bear on the development and set-up of our new car, which will play an important role in the fight for top positions. I hope I can start the new DTM era in Hockenheim where I left off last year,” said a positive Green.

Powered by a 4.0-litre V8 unit, the Coupé is based around a carbon fibre monocoque with steel roll cage, and comes equipped with equipped with six – front, lateral and rear – energy-absorbing crash structures.

The 11 race season begins in Hockenheim on April 29.
