2012 DTM at the Lausitzring. |0
Reactions of the BMW drivers and team principals after race two of the 2012 DTM at the Lausitzring.
Lausitzring, 6th May 2012. BMW returned to the podium in only the second race of its DTM comeback, thanks to Bruno Spengler's (CA) victory and third place for Augusto Farfus (BR). Read here what the three BMW team principals and the six drivers had to say after the thrilling race.
Charly Lamm (Team Principal, BMW Team Schnitzer):
"This is simply fantastic. The DTM is so challenging and the bar has been set so high. Despite this, however, we first claimed pole and then clinched the first victory in only our second race - that is indescribable. It was an unbelievably exciting race. Bruno was consistently under pressure and could not afford to make a single mistake. It is sensational what he did out there. He has nerves of steel. I said in the past that it would come down to stability, strategy and pit stops. That was the case today, and it all worked perfectly for us. Thanks not only to Bruno, but also to every single person in the team. This success is the reward for the hard work they have put in in recent months."
Bart Mampaey (Team Principal, BMW Team RBM):
"Congratulations to BMW on a fantastic first and third. We had a really great race with Augusto, who had to defend very hard against Jamie Green. We had two good pit stops and managed to get ahead of him after the second tyre change. Augusto drove brilliantly all weekend. At the end of the day, I think narrowly missing pole position yesterday is what cost us the victory. Bruno did a great job. Congratulations to Schnitzer and BMW."
Stefan Reinhold (Team Principal, BMW Team RMG):
"Firstly, congratulations to my two colleagues Charly Lamm and Bart Mampaey. Both have done magnificently with their teams. However, our two drivers Martin Tomczyk and Joey Hand were also able to get the maximum out of this
