Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):

“For the grand finale of the 2018 DTM, we return to Hockenheim where we witnessed a spectacular race weekend at the start of the season. The duel between the victorious Timo Glock and Gary Paffett really was exceptional. And that’s exactly how we want to take our leave from the DTM fans for the winter break: with breath-taking duels and high emotions. It goes without saying that a win like at the 2017 finale would be terrific added motivation for us through the break from racing. For the time being, the Hockenheimring will be the last time that we take on our rivals at Mercedes in the DTM. This farewell makes the coming weekend all the more special.”

Marco Wittmann (#11 BMW Driving Experience M4 DTM, BMW Team RMG):

“I will give it my all to end a mixed season on a high at Hockenheim. Last year I managed to head into the winter break with a win. It will be difficult to achieve that again since our rivals have been very strong in recent races. Nevertheless, my aim is to finish the weekend with at least a podium under my belt.”
