put in a unequivocally good opening in qualifying, we were also means to
grasp a glorious outcome in a race. we am unequivocally unapproachable of Marco and Tom,
who brought a one-two outcome home, notwithstanding Edoardo Mortara keeping
adult a vigour right down to a final lap. And a guys behind them
also gathering a illusory race. That was by no means as easy as it might
have looked.”

Stefan Reinhold (Team Principal BMW Team RMG): “After
a formidable opening weekend, we worked tough to broach a better
opening here. Naturally we wanted to uncover that we go during the
top. The whole group did a super job. Everything went good currently – with
both drivers. Marco was once again ‘mega’ during a top. Now we will go
on a conflict for a second time here in Spielberg tomorrow.”

Marco Wittmann (BMW Team RMG, 1st place): “The Red
Bull Ring seems to fit me unequivocally well. It unequivocally does provide me well.
With a stick position and a good start, we laid a substructure for
a win. Nevertheless, it was not easy to say a lead given my
rivals were means to use a DRS. I’m unequivocally happy that it was adequate to
get a win – utterly for a team. They warranted this success.”

Tom Blomqvist (BMW Team RBM, 2nd place): “It is
illusory to be on a lectern so early in a season. Our vehicle has been
impossibly quick so distant this weekend. We finished adult removing a outcome we
deserved, and altogether things went good for BMW too. we am happy – and
naturally we will go on a conflict again tomorrow.”

Timo Glock (BMW Team RMG, 4th place): “The competition was
okay. we had a good start, though after a few laps we beheld that the
change wasn’t perfect. we shop-worn a front splitter somewhat during
qualifying. we think that was a reason. This meant that we wasn’t
utterly means to keep adult with a gait during a front. Nevertheless, we are
satisfied. Congratulations to Marco, BMW Team RMG and BMW. That is a
illusory result.”

unequivocally happy. Going into a race, we pronounced fifth place was a realistic

Thanks go to my team, given we worked prolonged and tough to get such a good car.”

good race. It was unequivocally tighten during a start and my vehicle was slightly

always a good feeling to collect adult points.”

happy that we got a vehicle to a finish line total today. We couldn’t
have finished any improved than ninth place. The critical thing is that we
picked adult points. Now we need to go brazen step by step.”

Bruno Spengler (BMW Team MTEK, 13th place): “Firstly,
I’d like to honour Marco and Tom on a one-two result. That is
a marvellous outcome for BMW. Our problem currently was really the

start so distant down a field, it is formidable in a DTM. Now a focus
is on improving a vehicle for subordinate tomorrow.”

António Félix da Costa (BMW Team Schnitzer, 22nd place):
“The weekend started with seventh place in qualifying. Then
my chastisement meant that we started a competition from tenth. Everything looked
to be going good until we was awarded another penalty. we don’t really
determine with it right now. From my perspective, a motorist in front of
me done a mistake going into a yellow dwindle area and we gathering past him
on my line. But it is what it is. My competition was over after the
drive-through penalty.”
