Posted on 25. Jun, 2016 by in BMW Canada

Norisring (DE), 25th Jun 2016. At Saturday’s DTM competition during the
Norisring (DE), 4 BMW M4 DTM done it into a points, several
entertainment clever quip drives. Marco Wittmann (DE), Bruno Spengler
(CA) and Maxime Martin (BE) finished in fourth, fifth and sixth place.
António Félix da Costa (PT) also picked adult points for BMW, finishing ninth.

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): “The fans
witnessed an intensely stirring competition – usually like we are used to at
a Norisring. It was a tip outcome for us and a best that we were
means to achieve. Naturally, we benefitted from an assertive manoeuvre
from a opposition. But with Bruno Spengler in fifth place, we only
had one motorist in a good starting position. The fact that we finished up
with 4 cars in a tip 10 is fantastic. Marco in particular
delivered an glorious opening during his home eventuality and pushed his
approach into fourth place after starting from 13th on a grid, though Bruno
and Maxime both had good races right behind him. we am unequivocally pleased.
Now we will bear complete preparations for tomorrow. It will be
another fiercely contested race.”

Marco Wittmann (BMW Team RMG, 4th place): “The best
word we can consider of to report this outcome is ‘mega’. we had a good
start from P13, afterwards it is always impossibly tighten on a initial turn
here. we went for a inside line, and we consider that was a right
choice. we was means to make adult positions and afterwards benefitted from the
hotheads in front of me – we need to keep a cold conduct during a front.
In terms of pace, we were very, unequivocally fast. From 13th to fourth place –
that doesn’t occur any day.”

Bruno Spengler (BMW Team MTEK, 5th place): “Fifth
place is okay, though I’m not totally happy. We were comparatively good in
qualifying. The group unequivocally did a good pursuit and softened a car
extremely overnight, though afterwards a competition speed usually wasn’t good
enough. The certain thing is that we came divided with points.”

Maxime Martin (BMW Team RBM, 6th place): “That really
wasn’t unequivocally easy today. It is never easy from 14th on a grid in the
DTM, though to afterwards finish adult in sixth place is fantastic. We picked up
points again – and I’m happy about that.”

António Félix da Costa (BMW Team Schnitzer, 9th place):
“I’m happy with a result. Qualifying was disappointing, we
done life formidable for ourselves for a race. That said, we during least
had a improved vehicle than a guys around us, so we was means to demeanour after
my brakes and economise with a DRS. In terms of strategy, that was
a pivotal today. The overtaking manoeuvres were fun, and we am totally
happy with dual points after starting from 21st on a grid.”

Augusto Farfus (BMW Team MTEK, 11th place): “We just
couldn’t find a good set-up for a race, though we still usually narrowly
missed out on a points. It’s a genuine shame. We are creation progress
small by little, that is because it’s good that there is another race
tomorrow in that we can infer ourselves.”

Martin Tomczyk (BMW Team Schnitzer, 12th place): “I
got by this competition unequivocally well. we kept adult with António via the
competition from a start, and we worked a approach adult a margin together. The
vehicle was good and we had a right racing speed, though we get stranded in
trade during a Norisring.”

Timo Glock (BMW Team RMG, 14th place): “The start was
okay. Then, unfortunately, we was a bit too distant out in Schöller-S on
a initial lap, finished adult in a mud and mislaid a car. It was like
pushing on ice and we slipped into a wall. After that, a vehicle no
longer achieved perfectly. On tip of that, my DRS didn’t work in the
initial half of a race. So naturally we never stood a possibility and were
incompetent to collect adult any points.”

Tom Blomqvist (BMW Team RBM, 16th place): “The
continue was good, a atmosphere was marvellous – and my start was
also okay. But afterwards we got wedged in on a initial spin and mislaid a few
places. And afterwards when we have a procession of cars in front of you, it is
unequivocally formidable to pass here during a Norisring. It was also a
formidable competition altogether for me.”
