BMW Team RMG Wins The 2014 DTM In Budapest


Marco Wittmann (DE) celebrated his second win of the year at the third race of the DTM season in Budapest (HU). The BMW Team RMG driver took full advantage of his pole position in the Ice-Watch BMW M4 DTM to comfortably lead the race from start to finish. After 41 laps of the Hungaroring, Wittmann came home 6.615 seconds ahead of Miguel Molina (ES, Audi). The 24-year-old has regained the lead in the Drivers’ Championship with 50 points ahead of his home race at the Norisring (DE) at the end of June. The victory was BMW Motorsport’s 61st in the history of the DTM, and the second with the new BMW M4 DTM. This was also the second win in the DTM for BMW Team RMG and its boss Stefan Reinhold (DE).

Bruno Spengler (CA) produced a successful fightback in the BMW Bank M4 DTM to cross the finish line in third place and claim his first podium of the season. Spengler had started the race from ninth on the grid and on standard tyres, and could initially do nothing to stop all the cars on the faster option tyres from passing him. However, when the 2012 DTM champion had changed onto the softer compound, he promptly set about charging through the field on his way to third place and a richly-deserved spot on the podium.
