Nico Muller to compete for Audi
Nico Müller has joined Audi for 2014 DTM season. The 21-year-old Swiss driver will replace Filipe Albuquerque, who is switching to Audi’s LMP and GT program.
Müller proved his eligibility for the vacant Audi RS5 cockpit by delivering strong performances in track tests. For him to compete in the DTM this year means the fulfillment of a long-held dream. I watched the series even as a child. And ever since I tested a DTM Audi for the first time, if not before, I’ve been dreaming about an opportunity to contest a race in such a car. That’s why it’s a great honor for me that Audi is placing the trust in me to compete in an RS5 DTM. – he said.
Last year Swiss driver completed his sixth season of open-wheel racing with a fifth place in the F.Renault 3.5, after scoring two victories with the Draco team at Budapest and Monaco.
