Quotes brazen of a DTM races during a Nürburgring.

 

Jens Marquardt (BMW Group Motorsport Director):

“BMW’s story in motorsport is closely related with a Nürburgring,
that is given a races on this iconic lane are always particularly
poignant for us. We will conduct into a finishing true of the
2019 DTM deteriorate there, a deteriorate that has brought us highs though also
lows so far. In a final races in particular, we haven’t matched adult to
a possess expectations. But this deteriorate has also shown that we are
means of winning. And now we have to build on these successes. We
will give it all from a initial to a final notation and concentration on
providing a drivers with a best probable package. This also
includes being stronger in subordinate again, so that we have the
possibility to grasp tip formula in a races. Our design is clear: We
wish to keep a quarrel for a pretension open down to a handle and put on
sparkling DTM movement for a fans in a final emanate of a season.”

 

Stefan Reinhold (Team Principal BMW Team RMG):

“The weekend during a Nürburgring is always a prominence of a season
for us given it is a home eventuality for a whole team. It is satisfactory to
contend that we all adore a Nürburgring. And this year we are celebrating
a special miracle during a Ring: Marco Wittmann’s 100th
competition for a team. We have distinguished vital successes together
previously, and this year Marco has already won 4 races. We will
keep operative tough and quarrel given it isn’t over until after a final
competition in Hockenheim. Bruno Spengler has also been on a tip step of
a lectern this deteriorate and has distinguished successes during a Nürburgring
in a past. Timo Glock has been unequivocally detrimental this year, that has
prevented him from converting his gait into a analogous results.
We wish that a waves will spin for him in a Eifel region. As a
team, we will unequivocally give it a all to have a successful home event
with all 3 of a drivers.”

 

Bruno Spengler (#7 BMW Bank M4 DTM, BMW Team RMG, Drivers’
standings: 8th, 79 points):

“I unequivocally suffer a Nürburgring. we have won there several times
already, and a throng is always amazing. we wish that we will be more
rival again there than we were recently during a Lausitzring. We
will work tough to urge a performance. If we conduct that, we are
in with a good possibility of bringing home a podium. It would be good to
make it onto a lectern during BMW Team RMG’s home event. I’m also really
looking brazen to competing in a Simrace with a cars. It’s going to
be an overwhelming event, and it’s illusory that lots of DTM drivers will
be involved. We will have a lot of fun with a fans, and it’s all for
a good cause. It’s going to be a good start to a competition weekend.”

 

Marco Wittmann (#11 Schaeffler BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMG,
Drivers’ standings: 3rd, 167 points):

“I wish that we will be in a stronger position again during the
Nürburgring. It’s a lane that has always matched us unequivocally good in the
past, and me personally. We have distinguished a few wins during BMW Team
RMG’s home eventuality in a past as well. I’ve famous a lane for a long
time by a DTM, 24-hour races and a VLN. So I’m looking
brazen to a weekend and wish that we will be means to move home
good results.”

 

Timo Glock (#16 BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMR, Drivers’ standings:
13th, 33 points):

“I’m looking brazen to a Nürburgring. It is a team’s home race,
that always creates it special. We wish to be means to perform well
there – and that a fitness returns.”

 

Bart Mampaey (Team Principal BMW Team RBM):

“We are rarely encouraged going into a final emanate of a season.
The races during a Lausitzring didn’t go utterly as we had hoped, though the
rug will be shuffled in a Eifel region. The Nürburgring has a own
special challenges, that both a group and all 3 drivers Philipp
Eng, Joel Eriksson and Sheldon outpost der Linde are unequivocally informed with.
It will be critical for us to lapse to a strength in qualifying
that we have already shown during many competition weekends this season. Then our
3 drivers will be means to modify their good gait in a races
into analogous formula again. The whole group has been preparing
intensely. We are all operative tough to make certain a drivers are able
to be adult there battling for a tip spots in a remaining 4 races
of a deteriorate so that they can collect adult a limit series of points.”

 

Philipp Eng (#25 ZF BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMR, Drivers’
standings: 4th, 140 points):

“The Nürburgring is like a second home to me, and we will have to be
clever that we don’t spin onto a Nordschleife. Seriously though: I
am looking brazen to a Nürburgring, we adore being there, we like the
lane and a area. The lane is unequivocally technical in a initial zone in
particular, afterwards we have medium-speed turns in a second sector, and
finally a equivocation with a high kerbs, we need to know accurately how
to take them though deleterious a car. It will unequivocally be
interesting. we wish that we will be means to repeat a good qualifying
opening from final year and afterwards collect adult copiousness of points in the
races. I’m also unequivocally looking brazen to a Simrace on Thursday.
It’s going to be cold pushing on a practical chronicle of a Grand Prix
track, alongside a fans and all for a good cause. It will be a lot
of fun.”

 

Sheldon outpost der Linde (#31 Shell BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RBM,
Drivers’ standings: 12th, 36 points):

“Nürburgring is substantially a lane that we know best on a DTM
calendar. So from that indicate of perspective I’m unequivocally looking brazen to it.
we wish that it will fit a automobile a bit some-more than a Lausitzring has –
and by a inlet of a lane it routinely should. In general, the
opening and competition gait are good, and we am looking brazen to
bringing it all together now and creation a good finish to a season.”

 

Joel Eriksson (#47 CATL BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RBM, Drivers’
standings: 10th, 47 points):

“Nürburgring is a lane we like. My gait has always been utterly good
there, also already in singular seaters. The lane is fun in a BMW M4
DTM, and of march it’s a classical circuit. Everybody knows the
Nürburgring. We have some work to do, though we will do all in our
energy to make certain we have a clever weekend there.”
