Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):

“Hockenheim and the Lausitzring provided us with two race weekends full of excitement, drama and emotions. The 2018 DTM season could not have got off to a better start. Now the stage is set for the third round at the Hungaroring – and we are confident that the fans will experience exhilarating races there as well. We are heading to Hungary with a strong tailwind. Timo successfully defended his lead in the standings at the Lausitzring, at least one BMW driver has been on the podium at every race this season, and the Hungaroring has always been a good track for us. So, our goal has to be to bring home more successes.”
