And no other motorist has won some-more races than Jamie Green. So, it’s all a some-more unsatisfactory that we weren’t means to take any of a 3 championship titles home.

We reliable once some-more that we have 3 extensive teams and an intensely clever motorist squad. Six of a 8 drivers and all 3 teams have won races this year. This speaks for itself. Before a final weekend, we usually had minimal chances of clinching one of a 3 titles. That’s since a expectations weren’t really high anymore. We kept a promises, went for limit conflict and clinched dual glorious results.”

But that doesn’t change a fact that a Audi RS 5 DTM was a best automobile in a field. We only didn’t remove adequate from it.”

Sunday afterwards was really frustrating again. we clinched a feat and dual stick positions in 2015. That’s all in terms of highlights. After 3 good years in a DTM, this one has simply been jinxed. I’m going to forget about it now and demeanour brazen to improved days.”

The second set of tires was most improved and we had already pulled transparent of dual rivals when we had to lay a drive-through chastisement for an ‘unsafe release,’ that we couldn’t know during all. That’s what eventually busted my race. That’s a contrition since a top-5 position would have been probable to finish a season. Now I’m going to recharge my batteries in winter and conflict again subsequent year. Congratulations to my Rosberg group and to Jamie on winning and holding second place in a championship.”

I’d have favourite to do my partial in still branch a tables in a manufacturers’ classification. Now we need to investigate a season, get over it and demeanour ahead.”
