Former champion Gary Paffett will enter into a 12th season of DTM racing in 2015 after retaining his drive in the EURONICS-sponsored Mercedes C-Coupe.

Paffett is one of the most experienced drivers on the DTM grid having competed in each season since his debut in 2003 (with the exception of 2006), the British driver accumulating a series-best 20 wins in that time.

The 2005 DTM champion and a four-time runner-up, though Paffett is destined for his least successful DTM season in 2014 after scoring just once in nine of the ten races thus far, he is the first person to be announced with Mercedes for 2015 after the manufacturer extended its deal with EURONICS to sponsor his car.
