Mercedes Benz tested new cars for 2001 at Jarama, Spain in December dor 3 days. The test days' weather was all very wet. According to dtm.de, it wasn't a ideal weather to test because they hoped it might be sunny there. But it might be not useless one...
There is an rumour that Peter will team up alongside DTM champion Bernd Schneider, according to autosport.com and dtm.de. Mercedes spokesman denied the story "these are just rumours." But it's strongly believed (or only I want to just believe?).
Background of the rumour, there is the fact that Peter had tested Mercedes car at Jarama, Spain with Schneider, and his good results of last year - 2 podium finishes at Sachsenring and so on.
