Felix Rosenqvist has confirmed he's kept hold of his race seat for the next round at the Nurburgring after doing enough to impress the head of Mercedes' DTM operations.
The Swedish driver stepped in for the F1-bound Esteban Ocon in Moscow and secured a points finish in his maiden race in the German series.
The initial confirmation had been only for Rosenqvist to race in Moscow but the 2015 European Formula 3 champion has been handed a second outing at the Nurburgring with the Mercedes-Benz DTM Team ART squad.
“We sat down together after the race weekend, and Uli Fritz [head of Mercedes DTM] told me that I will be driving again at the Nürburgring,” Rosenqvist said. “I'm really pleased about that. I can hardly wait and hope that I can repeat my performance from Moscow again in the Eiffel.”
As well as his DTM exploits, Rosenqvist has recently been confirmed for the third season of Formula E after replacing Bruno Senna in the Mahindra Racing driver line-up alongside Nick Heidfeld
. The Swedish driver is also completing in selected Indy Lights rounds in the USA this season.
