The question of the burdens of compensation is a great topic of discussion”. In this line of argumentation, Paffett added: “The DTM needs to have exciting races.

On the contrary, the brand of Munich has only managed to be the best manufacturer during two weekends in Zandvoort and Oschersleben. Those weekends BMW came to bring between 20 and 30 pounds less than the Mercedes and Audi, monopolizing almost all of the first eight positions. Among those four runs totaled 256 points, almost 40% of the point total.
