Jens Marquardt (BMW Group Motorsport Director):

“It has been a successful start to a new turbo epoch in a DTM for
us. Four races, 4 stick positions, dual wins and dual serve podiums
– those are good formula for a new BMW M4 DTM. In a races thus
far, we have seen that all 6 BMW drivers are unequivocally rival and
can record some tip results. With Philipp streamer a championship and
Marco in third place overall, we are streamer to Misano with copiousness of
momentum. We are aiming to build on a good performances from the
initial races there. We can all good remember a good entrance that we
all gifted during Misano final year. Now we are extraordinary to discover
what this entrance weekend will bring.”

“We have used a brief mangle given Zolder for in-depth preparation
brazen of a competition weekend during Misano. At Hockenheim and Zolder we could
see that a new BMW M4 DTM gives us a unequivocally good gait – as shown by
Marco’s stick positions, his win and a unequivocally clever performances from
Bruno and Timo. However, a array of resources that enclosed some
bad fitness with a reserve automobile prevented us from converting these
performances into a analogous formula in any competition for our
drivers. The foundations are right and during Misano it is essential that
we work towards a right set-up for a severe multiple of
quick and delayed sections, right from a word go. We are extremely
encouraged and are looking brazen to a weekend, that also outlines a
unequivocally special anniversary for Marco and Timo.”

opportunities. we was there for a initial time final year and we think
a circuit is unequivocally interesting. It is severe and includes a
series of opposite combinations of corners. The strand plcae is
also unequivocally attractive. we wish that a continue will be a bit better
this time than final year. Italy is always great, a Italian fans love
motorsport and that is because we am unequivocally looking brazen to Misano.”

change. The night conditions in a sleet were unequivocally difficult
final year. That means that it will be something new for us, in a
sense. This circuit is a severe one and has a bit of everything,
with quick and delayed sections. All things considered, it’s cold to drive
in Italy and it is good that Andrea Dovizioso will be creation a guest
entrance too. We have done a unequivocally good start, with unequivocally good
performances. We haven’t had fitness on a side in each competition though I
consider that we can confident with a deteriorate so far. Now we are hoping
to have good gait during Misano.”

illusory home turn during Zolder. Philipp’s initial DTM win and relocating to
a tip of a standings, Sheldon’s initial stick position, Joel also on
a lectern after finishing second on Saturday – we will remember
Zolder for a prolonged time to come. Now we are looking brazen to the
second DTM entrance during Misano. We were means to applaud there last
year when Joel claimed his initial win on a Sunday. We are starting
from a good position and we wish to make use of this momentum. The
whole group will be operative tough to record some some-more good formula during Misano.”

that we are able of some clever results. Especially a Sunday pole
position in Zolder was good proclivity for a whole organisation on my side
of a garage so in terms of that we are unequivocally positive. we have raced
during Misano before, as we did a GT competition there final year, so we kind of
know a lane already that is good, other than during Zolder, where
all was new for us. we consider that Misano is going to be good.”
