Blomqvist (GB) claimed a second one-two of a DTM deteriorate for BMW
Motorsport in Saturday’s foe during a Nürburgring (DE). Timo Glock (DE)

points. BMW was means to extend a lead in all 3 competitions on
a behind of this excellent group result. Wittmann tops a Drivers’
Championship, while BMW Team RMG leads a group foe and BMW
a Manufacturers’ Championship.

Read here what BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt and a eight
BMW DTM drivers had to contend after a race.

Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director): “We were
once again treated to ‘Mega Marco’ today. He claimed a home win for
BMW Team RMG in widespread fashion, interjection to a top-class opening –
and on a 50th coming of a DTM in a Eifel Mountains. Tom
Blomqvist also did a illusory job. He was underneath vigour for the
whole race, and pushed himself to a extent right to a finish. Timo
Glock and Maxime Martin also scored a lot of profitable points for their
teams. It is a contrition that Bruno Spengler was given a drive-through
chastisement while using sixth. He speckled his possibility opposite Daniel
Juncadella, though afterwards done contact. The chastisement was justified. Martin
Tomczyk could also have finished in a points, though unfortunately he
was forced off a track. All in all, however, it was a virtually
ideal day for us. We witnessed some illusory furloughed vehicle racing. We
are now focussed on tomorrow, when there are some-more critical points up
for grabs.”

Marco Wittmann (BMW Team RMG, 1st place): “That was a
mega race. we am positively gay with a win – not usually for me,
though also for my team, that has won during a home eventuality for a third
year in a row. we had a unequivocally good start and was means to urge my lead
in a initial corner. After that, we only attempted to open a opening forward of
Tom Blomqvist and keep my rhythm. After a guys behind me were
concerned in a few battles, we had a gentle lead. All we had to do
afterwards was move it home.”

Tom Blomqvist (BMW Team RBM, 2nd place): “I am very
happy with this result. We had a few problems in use yesterday
and today. However, BMW Team RBM got to grips with this magnificently
by a time subordinate came around. The foe was unequivocally tough with some
tighten battles. we had to deflect off a array of attacks. we managed that,
and am unequivocally happy with a lectern and a 18 points.”

Timo Glock (BMW Team RMG, 5th place): “The start was
not indeed a best, though a speed was good after that. we was able
to pass Lucas Auer, nonetheless we did do a bit of repairs to the
front-right tyre in a process. Despite this, a gait was still
okay. we am happy to be behind in a points. we am apparently delighted
for BMW Team RMG and a whole group with Marco Wittmann’s win and our
good altogether result. Marco is doing all right during a moment,
and wholly deserved his win.”

Maxime Martin (BMW Team RBM, 8th place): “I am not
wholly happy with a result. we had a unequivocally good start, though was then
stranded in a container and mislaid a few places. we was means to recover these on
a track, that was good, though 4 points is not a transport we was
anticipating for. Congratulations to Marco and my team-mate Tom on his podium.”

Martin Tomczyk (BMW Team Schnitzer, 16th place):
“Firstly, congratulations to Marco, Tom and BMW on this
superb result. we indeed had a good foe too and was running
11th when we came off a racing line and shop-worn a vehicle in a tough but
satisfactory conflict with Mattias Ekström. After that, we was fighting a losing battle.”

Bruno Spengler (BMW Team MTEK, 18th place): “My start
was good. we done adult some places and was means to go with Daniel
Juncadella. The gait was generally fine adult to a center of a race.
Unfortunately, we afterwards saw a opening and attempted to pass Juncadella. The
wheels sealed adult and we unequivocally attempted to stay on my line. Unfortunately,
a front spindle got divided from me a small and we done slight contact
with him. There was positively no vigilant and we have apologised to him.
The chastisement was harsh, though we have to accept it and concentration on tomorrow.”

António Félix da Costa (BMW Team Schnitzer, 20th place):
“That was a unequivocally bad foe for me, personally. Even in
subordinate we was incompetent to urge on a second set of tyres, which
meant we had to start from right during a behind of a grid. In a race
a gait was not good adequate to make any progress. That has mostly been
a problem. we am apparently unequivocally gratified for a other BMW guys during the
front of a field. However, we wish things vessel out improved for us again tomorrow.”

Augusto Farfus (BMW Team MTEK, 22nd place):
“Unfortunately, that was a unequivocally tough day for me. We just
did not find a set-up to concede us to competition during a front. We must
urge that for tomorrow, afterwards things will hopefully work out better.”
