Thomas Sabo and Mercedes-Benz compete together in the new DTM season

This season of the DTM, Mercedes-Benz has as sponsor Thomas Sabo. 30 year-old Briton Gary Paffett, the champion in 2005 will be the one driving the AMG Bercedes C-Class this year.
Paffett declared that he is proud to race Thomas Sabo as the new title sponsor because the brand complements with motorsport and the DTM. Also, he thinks this move is an important step for a brand in the UK like Thomas Sabo as it opens more development opportunities.
This years' season will be a better one, or at least this is what the team wants and it's focused on with their new partner. The tests revealed great news and this is why Paffett aims to improve by one position over last year.
The driver is working with Mercedes-Benz since 2003 and scored a total of 17 DTM victories out of 70 competitions and this is a good result as he won more than any other active DTM driver. His experience doesn't stop here. In 2004, 2009 and 2010 he finished three times as runner-up in the championship and since 2006 he was the test driver for the McLaren-Mercedes Formula One team.
Well done you guys and good luck!
