This is good news for Quebec racing driver Mikael Grenier as Mercedes-AMG has renewed his contract with the player for two more years. This is Grenier’s first contract lasting more than a year. “The goal is for every rider to contract with the manufacturer. A contract of more than one year is a symbol of a little stability that is rare in our environment. We are very happy to have come this far,” says Grenier. After a season on the DTM circuit, Mikael will return to endurance racing next year, which is what she prefers and is good at. “The best race of the season was the endurance race,” adds Grenier. Glad to have had his experience with DTM, he’s been stronger and with better results. “DTM was a great experience. Unlike endurance races where you have to share a car with two or three drivers, it was fun to race alone in the car. I will still be doing sprint races next season, but in a different format than the DTM Championship. But he says he’s definitely happy to go back to the endurance race. “Patience is another challenge I love! Driving at night is a very special feeling. The 24-hour race is physically very difficult. To fight to win, you have to be perfect 24 hours a day,” Grenier adds.
