A product of the Formula BMW talent factory
Fast and talented: these two words best sum up Marco Wittmann. The German, now 23 years old, demonstrated his raw speed back in his Formula BMW days. Wittmann received the necessary tools for a successful career in motorsport in Formula BMW, scoring three wins and a further 14 podium finishes in the 2007 and 2008 seasons of BMW's junior racing programme. "I have always had a link to BMW since the great and informative time I spent in Formula BMW," he says. "As such, I am delighted to be able to race for BMW in 2012 and to gain DTM experience as a test driver. I am certain that I will learn a lot in this new environment."
BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt is full of praise for Marco's rapid development: "He made a very good impression at his DTM test. It is certainly no coincidence that Marco has come through our own junior promotion programme. Having graduated from Formula BMW he forged ahead with his motorsport career."
