BMW team takes two podium positions for DTM Moscow
Two BMW drivers made it onto the podium in race 11 of the DTM season in Moscow (RU): pole-sitter Marco Wittmann (DE) of BMW Team RMG led for most of the race in the Ice-Watch BMW M4 DTM, but was passed by Pascal Wehrlein (DE, Mercedes) in the final few minutes of the race after an enthralling battle. The reigning DTM champion eventually came home second. BMW Team MTEK driver Bruno Spengler (CA, BMW Bank M4 DTM) finished third, courtesy of an impressive overtaking manoeuvre in the final corner.
DTM rookie Tom Blomqvist (GB, BMW M4 DTM) was also in the points in eighth place. António Félix da Costa (PT), at the wheel of the Red Bull BMW M4 DTM, came home just outside the points in 11th. Augusto Farfus (BR, Shell BMW M4 DTM), Martin Tomczyk (DE, BMW M Performance Parts M4 DTM) and Maxime Martin (BE, SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM) finished 15th, 17th and 18th. Timo Glock (DE, DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM) failed to finish after crashing out as a result of a collision with Mattias Ekström (SE, Audi) while running fourth.
