Mercedes has confirmed that Jamie Green will remain in its lineup for the 2012 DTM season.
The British driver has raced for the Stuttgart marque since 2005, winning seven races during that time. Last year he returned to the top-line HWA squad after spending two years in older machinery with Persson Motorsport.
Green won the season finale at Hockenheim last October, and he is looking forward to building on that momentum as he stays with HWA for 2012.
"DTM enters a new era in 2012, new cars and technical rules promise to make it even more exciting than before," said Green, who finished fifth in the standings last year. I'm looking forward to bringing my experience from seven DTM seasons to bear on the development and setup of our new Mercedes C-coupe."
Mercedes motorsport boss Norbert Haug added: "Jamie is without doubt one of the finest and fastest drivers contesting the DTM.
"We look forward to a new season with Jamie, who, like a true racer, has been polishing up on his German skills, so that they are now almost as perfect as his drive in Hockenheim."
Green joins Gary Paffett, David Coulthard, Ralf Schumacher and Susie Wolff as drivers confirmed for Mercedes for this year.
