BMW victorious again at the Norisring after 25 years: Spengler wins, ahead of Martin, five BMW M4 DTMs in the top six.
01.07.2017 Press Release
Bruno Spengler (CAN) claimed the first win of the DTM season for BMW in Saturday’s race at the Norisring (GER). The Canadian’s first victory since the 2013 race in Spielberg (AUT) was not only a special moment for him, but was also a historic one for BMW. The last BMW driver to win at the street circuit in Nürnberg (GER) was Steve Soper (GBR) in a BMW M3 back in 1992.

Norisring. Bruno Spengler (CAN) claimed the first win of the DTM season for BMW in Saturday’s race at the Norisring (GER). The Canadian’s first victory since the 2013 race in Spielberg (AUS) was not only a special moment for him, but was also a historic one for BMW. The last BMW driver to win at the street circuit in Nürnberg (GER) was Steve Soper (GBR) in a BMW M3 back in 1992. This latest success also marked BMW’s 25th victory since returning to the DTM in 2012. Maxime Martin (BEL) finished second to complete the 20th one-two for BMW in the DTM. He had started the race from pole position. Marco Wittmann (GER), Timo Glock (GER) and Tom Blomqvist (GBR) came home fourth, fifth and sixth to round off an outstanding team result for BMW.



Qualifying:
The 20-minute session at the Norisring developed into a battle for every thousandths of a second. Maxime Martin (SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM) clocked the fastest time of 47.472 seconds on his final lap to secure pole position, 0.005 seconds ahead of René Rast (GER, Audi). This was the third pole position of Martin’s DTM career and his first since the Saturday race at the 2015 DTM finale in Hockenheim (GER). This was BMW’s second pole position of the season and the 58th pole for the manufacturer in the DTM. Bruno Spengler (BMW Bank M4 DTM) was third fastest with a lap time of 47.493 seconds, earning him one point towards the Drivers’ Championship. Martin was rewarded for his pole position with three points. Tom Blomqvist (BMW Driving Experience M4 DTM), Marco Wittmann (Red Bull BMW M4 DTM) and Timo Glock (DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM) also qualified in the top ten in fourth, seventh and eighth respectively. In doing so, they rounded off the best qualifying result of the season for BMW. Augusto Farfus (BRA, Shell BMW M4 DTM) was 16th fastest.



The race:

Shortly before the start of the race, the Norisring was hit by a heavy shower, which resulted in a wet track. Bruno Spengler made a very good start on wet tyres, climbing into the lead from third place on the grid. Maxime Martin initially dropped from pole position into fourth place. However, he overtook René Rast on lap two to move into third. While Spengler was able to pull clear at the front, Martin passes Mattias Ekström (SWE, Audi) to regain second place on lap nine. After 20 laps, the track had dried out so much that all the drivers switched to slicks. Spengler and Martin retained the top two positions after the round of pit stops. Over the course of the race, Spengler pulled away from the chasing pack again. Martin fended off Ekström in a thrilling battle for second place. Marco Wittmann, Timo Glock and Tom Blomqvist worked their way through the field on slicks, ending the seventh race of the season in fourth, fifth and sixth. Blomqvist set the fastest lap time of 48.345 seconds. Augusto Farfus was forced to retire with a technical issue after 11 laps.



The reactions:



BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt: “It is awesome to win here at the Norisring with Bruno Spengler. This is the 25th victory since we returned to the DTM – and after 25 years without a win at the Norisring. Furthermore, this year marks the 50th anniversary of BMW in Lower Bavaria. It has all come together perfectly. The guys did a mega job. Maxime did superbly to hold off Mattias Ekström, while the other drivers behind him also had superb races. Today showed once again that anyone who makes a mistake at the Norisring will find it very difficult. Fortunately, however, that was not the case for us today. I am very proud of the boys. That was really impressive.”



Stefan Reinhold (team principal, BMW Team RMG): “The conditions were a real mixed bag. All in all, it is a great result for BMW. Congratulations to Bart and BMW Team RBM. They pushed hard. I am very pleased for them. We worked hard until just before the start of the race, and I hope we can improve again tomorrow.”



Marco Wittmann (#11, Red Bull BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 7th, race result: 4th place – 63 races, 8 wins, 16 podiums, 8 pole positions, 559 points, 2 Drivers’ titles): “The race was very eventful – particularly at the start, when it started to rain just before we got underway. I made a poor start and lost some places. However, I was then able to fight my way back towards the front in the skirmishes that ensued. We were running fifth for a long time, and had very good pace. We were possibly a lap or two too early with our stop. That allowed Edo Mortara to overtake me. However, I passed him again in the end and eventually ended the race in fourth place. That is a decent result from seventh on the grid. It has been a superb day for BMW on the whole – with Bruno and Maxime finishing first and second. I would obviously have liked to have joined them on the podium. The wait for a podium result at my home race at the Norisring goes on – but perhaps it will happen tomorrow.”



Augusto Farfus (#15, Shell BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 16th, race result: DNF – 73 races, 4 wins, 12 podiums, 5 pole positions, 345 points): “It is a great shame that we were unable to implement our strategy. I was running fifth when I had to give up. I am obviously very disappointed. However, it was a great race for the other guys.”



Timo Glock (#16, DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 8th, race result: 5th place – 63 races, 3 wins, 7 podiums, 2 pole positions, 272 points): “It all kicked off around me at the start, and I took quite a big hit. However, the race pace was good after that. I was able to overtake Nico Müller, but could not get past Edoardo Mortara. I was running alright in the dry after the pit stops, then Mike Rockenfeller spun Edo. That allowed us to finish fifth and score some good points, which was important. It was a fantastic race for BMW. I am delighted for Bruno Spengler.”



Bart Mampaey (team principal, BMW Team RBM): “That was beyond anything we could have imagined. Maxime’s pole position was magnificent and a great result for BMW. But the race actually managed to top that. I would like to thank BMW and, of course, the entire team. The pit stops were good again. And what a great start from Bruno! His pace was superb after that too. Maxime initially lost a few positions, but fought his way back to the front. Running first and second allowed us to choose the optimal moment to come in for a tyre change. Maxime showed once again what a great racer he is, battling it out with Mattias Ekström. Today is a good day.”



Bruno Spengler (#7, BMW Bank BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 3rd, race result: 1st place – 146 races, 15 wins, 47 podiums, 17 pole positions, 801 points, 1 Drivers’ title): “I am absolutely delighted with this win. This is my fourth victory at the Norisring – and the first win here for 25 years for BMW. I am very proud to have achieved that today – and am really pleased for the whole team. They have worked so hard for this, and it has not always been easy for us. However, it finally worked out today. We can really enjoy this now.”



Tom Blomqvist (#31, BMW Driving Experience M4 DTM – Grid position: 4th, race result: 6th place – 43 races, 1 win, 5 podiums, 1 pole position, 174 points): “The race was a great one for BMW, but we will certainly not be taking our foot off the gas. All the same, it feels great to score points in the first race. I lost a few positions at the start, but the pace was okay after that. I was right behind Timo Glock at the end, but could not find a way past him. Congratulations to the guys on the podium.”



Maxime Martin (#36, SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 1st, race result: 2nd place – 53 races, 2 wins, 8 podiums, 3 pole positions, 284 points): “One-two for BMW: that is fantastic. It is a shame I got off to such a poor start. I don’t know whether it was due to the wet track or something else. However, I was soon able to fight my way back into second place. I was pretty quick in the wet, and was able to overtake nicely. I was also able to set a fast pace in the dry conditions. It was really tough again at the end, but I did enough – and we picked up 18 points for finishing second.”



The standings:



Drivers: 1. Mattias Ekström (77 points), 2. René Rast (72), 3. Jamie Green (71), 4. Lucas Auer (69), 5. Timo Glock (59), 6. Gary Paffett (55), 7. Mike Rockenfeller (54), 8. Maxime Martin (53), 9.

Second race, second BMW victory: Maxime Martin wins eventful Sunday race at the Norisring.
02.07.2017 Press Release
Following Bruno Spengler’s (CAN) victory in Saturday’s race at the Norisring (GER), it was another BMW driver who crossed the finish line in first place at the end of the eighth race of the year on Sunday: after 66 laps, two safety car phases and one red flag, Maxime Martin (BEL) took the chequered flag to claim the 75th success for BMW in the DTM having started from seventh on the grid.



Norisring. Following Bruno Spengler’s (CAN) victory in Saturday’s race at the Norisring (GER), it was another BMW driver who crossed the finish line in first place at the end of the eighth race of the year on Sunday: after 66 laps, two safety car phases and one red flag, Maxime Martin (BEL) took the chequered flag to claim the 75th success for BMW in the DTM having started from seventh on the grid.



Martin backed up third place in Budapest (HUN) and second place on Saturday with his third DTM victory – his first since 2015 at the Nürburgring. For BMW, this was a fitting conclusion to a historic weekend at the Norisring. BMW was victorious in Nuremberg for the first time since 1992 – and, as was also the case back then, in both races. Marco Wittmann (GER), Augusto Farfus (BRA), Tom Blomqvist (GBR) and Timo Glock (GER) finished fifth, seventh, ninth and tenth to complete a fine team result, with five BMW M4 DTMs in the top ten on Sunday. Spengler came home twelfth, having been in contention for a podium finish for long periods of the race.



Qualifying:
As usual, the grid positions at the narrow street circuit were decided by mere thousandths of a second. At the end of the 20-minute session, it was Blomqvist in the BMW Driving Experience M4 DTM who secured pole position with a time of 47.252 – 0.004 seconds faster than Robert Wickens (CAN, Mercedes). This was Blomqvist’s second pole position of his career. It also marked BMW’s third pole of the season and 59th in the history of the DTM. Blomqvist was rewarded for his pole position with three points towards the Drivers’ Championship. Spengler, in the BMW Bank M4 DTM, ended qualifying in fourth place with a time of 47.305 seconds. Martin (SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM) and Glock (DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM) also made it into the top ten in seventh and ninth place. Wittmann (Red Bull BMW M4 DTM) was twelfth fastest, Farfus (BRA, Shell BMW M4 DTM) qualified 15th.



The race:

Spengler made a good start, which took him into second place. In contrast, Blomqvist dropped back to sixth. Five drivers came into the pits for their mandatory stop after the opening lap including Blomqvist and Farfus. The majority of the field opted for an early stop. By the end of the eighth lap, all six BMW drivers had been in for a tyre change. The strategy, and the rapid work performed by BMW Team RBM, allowed Martin, who came into the pits after lap seven, to climb through the field and join the battle for the lead. The safety car was called into action after 25 laps, following a collision between Mercedes driver Robert Wickens and René Rast (GER, Audi). Martin and Spengler moved into first and second place after the restart. However, contact with another car that was yet to make a stop resulted in Spengler’s car suffering a puncture. Shortly after that, the race was suspended after a crash involving Gary Paffett (GBR, Mercedes) and Mike Rockenfeller (GER, Audi).



After an interruption of around half an hour, the cars were sent back onto the track for the remaining 25 minutes. Maxime Martin led at the restart, with Wittmann third having climbed several places after the safety car phase. The exciting second half of the race saw Martin hold off Auer in the battle for the lead. The Belgian went on to claim the second win of the weekend for BMW. Wittmann came home fifth, just 0.027 seconds behind third-placed Edoardo Mortara (ITA, Mercedes) following a dramatic finish with three cars crossing the finish line within millimetres of each other. Farfus finished seventh to score his first points of the season. Blomqvist and Glock, who had to make an early second stop following a puncture, were ninth and tenth. Spengler fought his way back from last place to finish 12th.





The reactions:



BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt: “It was an epic weekend for us here at the Norisring. After finishing runner-up yesterday, Maxime claimed a great win today in an extremely exciting, eventful and at times chaotic race. I am incredibly proud of our team. We had five BMWs in the top ten and once again scored a lot of valuable points. A successful weekend, with the one-two yesterday, today’s success, and our 75th victory in the DTM. We will definitely be celebrating this evening. We hope Rocky makes a speedy recovery.”



Stefan Reinhold (team principal, BMW Team RMG): “Marco really wanted to finish on the podium here. We always try to score as many points as possible and battle for every point. Marco gave it his all, but unfortunately it didn’t quite work out today. At the end of such a demanding weekend, I can only bow to every single person in the team. We gave everything right down to the finish, and finished with all three cars in the points today.”



Marco Wittmann (#11, Red Bull BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 12th, race result: 5th place – 64 races, 8 wins, 16 podiums, 8 pole positions, 569 points, 2 Drivers’ titles): “The race itself went well. Thanks to our strategy of stopping after the second lap, I was able to make up some positions and was running ninth for a long time. I then climbed six places into third after the restart – what a lap. The other drivers were a little more cautious because of the cold tyres, but I went all out on the attack. That paid dividends; I was on course for a podium finish for a long time. Two laps from the end, Lucas Auer made a slight mistake and I tried to take advantage. As I was doing so, Mattias passed me. It is a real shame that I had to settle for fifth place in the end.”



Augusto Farfus (#15, Shell BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 15th, race result: 7th place – 74 races, 4 wins, 12 podiums, 5 pole positions, 351 points): “I have had to wait a long time for my first points of the season, but I finally have them. Unfortunately, we struggled to find the right set-up at the start of the weekend. Today, however, I had a car I could fight with. Seventh place is okay, especially when you consider where I started from. This is a good start, and I am now hoping to score a lot more points over the remainder of the season.”

Timo Glock (#16, DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 9th, race result: 10th place – 64 races, 3 wins, 7 podiums, 2 pole positions, 273 points): “That was a crazy race. The most important thing is obviously that nothing bad happened to Gary Paffett and Mike Rockenfeller. It looked very nasty. On the whole, we have to be happy with our result – particularly given the puncture I suffered on the front-right tyre. Gary lent on me a bit, and one of the flicks slit the tyre open. As a result, I had to make an extra pit stop. Usually, the race is over at that point. Fortunately, for us, the safety car made an appearance. That gave me another small chance. I made a few nice overtaking manoeuvres and was able to rescue a point. Congratulations to Maxime, he was strong all weekend. It was obviously an awesome weekend for BMW. I am particularly pleased about that. There was plenty for the fans to enjoy today.”



Bart Mampaey (team principal, BMW Team RBM): “Maxime drove a sensational race from seventh on the grid. Our strategy of waiting a little until the traffic in the pit lane had died down before making the pit stop was spot on. The pit stop was fantastic; the guys were really quick. After that, it was down to Maxime to pass Auer. Unfortunately, we then had that big crash, but fortunately Gary Paffett and Mike Rockenfeller are doing relatively okay. After the restart, Maxime and Auer were embroiled in an eye-catching battle. Maxime did a fantastic job and really deserved the win. I am delighted for him. In Tom’s case, we will have to take a close look to see what caused him to drop so far back down the field at the start. His performance in qualifying was superb, and we picked up more points, but we were obviously hoping for more from that grid position. We must continue to push. On the whole, it was an outstanding weekend for us.”



Bruno Spengler (#7, BMW Bank BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 4th, race result: 12th place – 147 races, 15 wins, 47 podiums, 17 pole positions, 801 points, 1 Drivers’ title): “The race was going really well at first, and we definitely had a chance of finishing on the podium, if not winning. Our car and our pace were superb. After the restart, Duval completely closed the door on me and there was contact, which caused my puncture. That cost me the race. It is a real shame. Congratulations to Maxime on the win. He drove a strong race. Despite my disappointment, I will take the positives from yesterday’s win and focus fully on the next race.”



Tom Blomqvist (#31, BMW Driving Experience M4 DTM – Grid position: 1st, race result: 9th place – 44 races, 1 win, 5 podiums, 2 pole position, 187 points): “Two points are better than nothing. However, starting from pole, I obviously wanted to be much further up the field and challenging for the win. As such, I am very disappointed. I have had problems with my starts all season, and I did not get away well here either. Then I was unlucky when I returned to the track behind a large group after the pit stop, and dropped right back through the field. There was a very thin line between a top result and a place towards the back of the field today.”



Maxime Martin (#36, SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM – Grid position: 7th, race result: 1st place – 54 races, 3 wins, 9 podiums, 3 pole positions, 309 points): “It was an incredible race. I made a very good start from seventh on the grid and was already fourth by the end of the opening lap. I was third after lap two, after some of the other cars had already been in for their stop. I pushed really hard after that and was able to take the lead after the safety car phase. That was not easy after the red flag and the subsequent restart, but it worked out. I was third in Budapest, runner-up yesterday, and winner today – it is fantastic.”



The standings:



Drivers: 1. Mattias Ekström (89 points), 2. Lucas Auer (87), 3. Maxime Martin (78), 4. Jamie Green (75), 5. René Rast (72), 6. Timo Glock (60), 7. Gary Paffett (55), 8. Mike Rockenfeller (54), 9.
