Schneider to retire from DTM.

"On the one hand, I am sorry to be saying goodbye to the many friends I have made in motor sports, and above all in the AMG, HWA and Mercedes-Benz teams over the last 17 years. On the other hand, I am looking forward to facing my exciting new challenges.

"I see my decision to work for AMG following my career as an active racing driver as absolutely logical. I was able to celebrate most of my victories, and also the most satisfying ones, in the AMG Mercedes team, and now I am looking forward to the new challenge."

After Hockenheim, Schneider will embark on a second career at Mercedes-AMG, acting as an ambassador for the high-performance brand, as well as being an instructor and test driver.

"We are very happy to be welcoming Bernd Schneider to AMG," chairman Volker Mornhinweg commented, "As a fair sportsman, Bernd enjoys a great deal of recognition and respect throughout the entire motor racing world and automobile industry. I am certain that our development team will benefit greatly from his knowledgeable support. And, with his pleasant manner, he is also bound to be much in demand as a conversation partner during customer and press events."
