Disappointment in Lusatia

22. Mai 2022 Zurück zur Artikelübersicht »

Marco Wittmann endured a disappointing DTM race weekend at the Lausitzring.

 

After failing to finish on Saturday, Wittmann finished tenth on Sunday to claim a hard-earned point. However, he and the Walkenhorst Motorsport team failed to find the right set-up for the Green Machine, with which he could have aimed for the podium. This weekend, it was Wittmann’s fellow BMW M works driver Sheldon van der Linde who won both races for Schubert Motorsport in a BMW M4 GT3.

 

“That was a disappointing weekend for us,” said Wittmann. “We did not have enough pace, especially compared to Schubert Motorsport and Sheldon van der Linde. I had a good start on Sunday, but was then forced out wide and immediately lost the positions I had gained. In the end, it was one point for tenth place. We must now analyse exactly what happened here at the Lausitzring and do better again next time.”

 

Next weekend, Wittmann and van der Linde will be team-mates, as they join forces in the #98 ROWE Racing BMW M4 GT3 and set their sights on victory at the Nürburgring 24 Hours.
