Just in time for the Easter weekend
2016 FIA Formula 3 European championship runner-up, ADAC Junior Motor Sports Person of the Year and ‘Germany’s Motorsport Talent of the Year’ – three titles our friend Maximilian Günther won last year, but this year he aims for another.
He has set his mind on winning the championship in the world’s strongest junior formula racing series with his successful Italian team Prema.
Since his 2016 team-mate Lance stroll is now racing for the Williams team in Formula One, Max has a new German team-mate at Prema this year: up-and-coming young star Mick Schumacher, the son of the most successful racing driver, Formula 1™ Record World Champion Michael Schumacher.
In addition to his position in Formula 3 with Prema, Günther will also act as the seventh driver for the Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM Team on race weekends of the internationally very popular touring car series. As a special treat for the fans, he will also take out the Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM race taxi.
Max about being one of the favourites to take the title: “It’s certainly an incentive and feels nice to be among the title favourites. I’ve consistently proven over the past few years that I can handle pressure well, which is why I’m already looking forward to the new season and will again do my best.”
