championship. Our objectives will be medium during a start of the
season, though with a integrity of a team, we wish that we will
swell from a start of a deteriorate to quarrel with a frontrunners.”

Dec during Jerez de la Frontera unequivocally gave me a ambience for more,”

in my motorsport career. we trust a DTM is one of a strongest and
best competition array in a world. we immediately felt during home in a BMW
