New: sports bag and rucksack in team design
Further new additions to the product portfolio include a sports bag and the rucksack in Petronas green with black highlights. The practical sports bag made of nylon/polyester is suitable for carrying all manner of sports equipment. The bag features a large main compartment and an additional zipped compartment for footwear. The polyester rucksack likewise sports a white MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS logo. In addition to a large main compartment with divider, it also features a zipped cover pocket and an elastic cord for securing items.

The design is completed by an integrated graphic element in the colours of the racing team. With the team flag featuring the same design and measuring 90 x 60 cm, fans can show their support for the team at the racetrack or from the balcony at home. And those who enjoy their coffee as much as Rosberg and Hamilton enjoy winning will be well served by the ceramic mug in the current team colours, which would look good on any desk.

Silver-coloured hour, minute and second hands with luminous detail, Petronas green hands for the stop function, a Mercedes star on the dial and the bezel with tachymeter scale round off the impressive design of this men's watch.

The sporty stainless-steel strap has a golden PVD coating.
Mercedes-AMG DTM team products: shirt, cap, key ring
For all the excitement generated by Formula 1, there's absolutely no reason for DTM to feel left out. The DTM men's polo shirt in white/black/silver grey impresses with its design in particular. A wealth of detailing, including the silver-coloured contrasting topstitching in the shoulder area, presents this shirt in the proper light. Further highlights of the shirt's unique design include the neck band in a contrasting colour, the button band with three carbon-fibre-look buttons, the cuffs and collar in 1x1 rib pattern, and the extended back length. Made from 100% combed single jersey cotton, it is exceptionally comfortable. The men's polo shirt features the DTM logo on the front and black "Mercedes-Benz" lettering on the back.
A perfect complement to this is the silver-coloured DTM cap. Thanks to a lining made from 100% cotton, it is likewise very comfortable to wear. Plus it is suitably robust on account of its 100% polyester outer material. The cap features the black DTM logo badge on the left side, a black embroidered 3D star at the front and a matt black 3D star clasp at the back. The black inner tape with white Mercedes-Benz lettering and the peak underside in carbon-fibre style complete the look of the 6-panel cap perfectly.
One of the DTM personal accessories for everyday use is the Hockenheim key ring, which is made in Germany. The flat split ring has "Mercedes-Benz" laser engraved on it and three further mini split rings for fast replacement and removal of individual keys. A badge with the Mercedes AMG DTM team logo appears on the front along with "One Team. One Vision." lettering on the back completes the design of the 9 cm long key ring.
