Christian Vietoris is a German racing driver in the 2015 DTM Championship, driving for HWA AG.[1] Vietoris uses the #8 Mercedes C63 DTM, and is in his fifth season in the DTM.[1]

Current SeasonEdit

Vietoris is a member of the Mercedes-Benz Junior Team, alongside Robert Wickens whom he joins at HWA.[2] At the season opener in Hockenheim, just missing out on the final point in the second race of the weekend.

BackgroundEdit

Vietoris started in karting, before starting in a full racing career in the Formula BMW ADAC Championship 2005, taking sixteenth overall with 17 points.[1] His 2006 campaign in the BMW ADAC Championship ended in glory, with Vietoris earning a drive in German Formula 3 as his prize for the title.[1] A single, 2007 campaign in German F3 ended with Vietoris in sixth, with the Formula 3 Euro Series arriving to him in 2008.[1]

After taking a single win in 2008, Vietoris finished runner-up in 2009.[1] After four wins, Vietoris missed out to future F1 racer Jules Bianchi, moving on to the GP2 Series in 2010, taking a single win (having spent the winter in the Asia version of the said series).[2] In 2011, Vietoris received backing from Mercedes-Benz, completing a final season in GP2, while also competing in the DTM.[2]

DTM HistoryEdit

Signed for Persson Motorsport, Vietoris used an older Mercedes C-Class in the 2011 season, surprising the field with a points finish at the third from last round.[2] With a new Mercedes C63 DTM under him, Vietoris improved in 2012, missing out on a podium at the season opener in Hockenheim.[2] 25 points were his final total for the year, good enough for twelfth overall.[2]

By far his best season, 2013 saw Vietoris stand on the podium four times on his way to fourth in the championship.[2] Yet, it was a memorable race in Oschersleben during the 2014 season for which Vietoris earned respect, taking his first DTM victory.[2] He went on to finish fourth in the championship with 69 points, as part of the HWA AG squad for the third year in a row.[2]
