Marco, it’s been 3 weeks given we were crowned DTM

a final competition weekend. It’s clear that as DTM Champion a media are
penetrating to speak to you. we took partial in press tours in Munich and
Nuremberg and also gave a lot of interviews. we also took partial in a lot
of events – for example, visiting a BMW Group bureau in Munich.
Naturally it is stressful to some extent, though it is beguiling stress
given it shows that we achieved something critical with a pretension win.
we consider it will lift on like this for a few some-more weeks. It was the
same when we won my initial pretension in 2014. Then around Christmas we will
no doubt have time and space to let my good success penetrate in.”

What does it feel like to have done story for BMW Motorsport?

tested a few new components for 2017, though we won’t get a genuine idea
until a contrast with a finish new car. It was critical to us to
finish copiousness of kilometres to get an initial feeling for the
innovations. I’m already looking brazen to sitting in a cockpit of
a BMW M4 DTM for a initial time. For us drivers it is good to have
some-more time for contrast this winter than in prior years. That makes
a time until a 2017 deteriorate gets underway some-more varied.”
