BMW wins DTM season debut at Hockenheim

Marco Wittmann drove the BWM  M4 DTM to a win in the 2014 season opener in Hickenheim today.   Wittman, who started from P2 on the grid, put a decisive move on Adrien Tambay's Audi at the hairpin during the opening laps and was untouchable for the rest of the race.

Second place went to Mattias Ekström ahead of Tambay in third.     Good day for BMW with six cars in the top ten.   Not a great one for Mercedes with no cars in the top ten but they will have performance weight to help them from the next race.

The opening laps of the race were fun, one great advantage to having fenders is that you can bang them and that's a DTM tradition. Traditional too is the lack of any "eco" hybrid components though DRS is now part of the rules.

DTM does not allow embedding of its race videos but you can go watch the on HERE on YouTube  which should allow you to rewind the "live" event.
