DTM 2019

The DTM is one of the world's best-known international championships in the touring car and GT segment. The racing series offers first-class, exciting sport at a top level. The DTM offers visitors many attractions around the action on the race track and high entertainment value with great fan proximity.
R-Motorsport will be competing against premium manufacturers such as Audi and BMW with four DTM Aston Martin Vantage cars in 2019.

The DTM will also be held outside Germany in core European markets such as Italy, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Belgium and is also expanding into Asia. Due to the agreed joint so-called "Class 1" regulations with the Japanese Super GT Championship, races in both series in Europe and Asia can be contested with the same cars in the future.

Two races will be held on each of nine race weekends, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Both races will be scored separately, each with full points.

The first leading kilometres for Aston Martin and R-Motorsport are something very special and emotional. All in all, it was a very good start to our first DTM weekend.

Unfortunately, I didn't have DRS in the final phase, but my pursuers did - that made life quite difficult for me. So I was happy to see the chequered flag in P6.

At its third race weekend in the still young history of the team, the squad managed to complete a total of 268 race laps and 1,132 race kilometres respectively in the two rounds on Saturday and Sunday. This allowed the team to gain further experience with the Aston Martin Vantage DTM, which was developed and built in record time.

A great race, but unfortunately no points. That's how today can be summed up for me. But I can still be satisfied because I made the best of the situation. At the same time, we also learned a few things that we can do better next time.

What a race! That was probably one of my toughest races, but it absolutely paid off in the end. We don't have a car to always finish in the points, but that's exactly what I managed today with sixth place. That's fantastic.

Paul Di Resta, who set the third fastest race lap in difficult conditions on Saturday, continued his strong performance this weekend in the second race. The 2010 DTM Champion crossed the finish line directly behind Daniel Juncadella in eighth place.

A very good team performance with the right tyre strategy, which Daniel and Paul used perfectly to finish seventh and eighth in the points. Both divided their race excellently, so that they even had prospects of a top-five place until the last lap.

It was a very tough race today and I struggled a lot with the car. On the second stint I gave 110%. It was very tiring, but I am happy with my performance.

On Saturday, the team showed an encouraging performance in the first race, which was rewarded with one point. In the second race on Sunday, R-Motorsport was unable to take any points despite a strong fighting performance by the drivers.

Many thanks to my teammates who gave me the chance to attack the points. I was able to catch up with the group in front of me, but overtaking was difficult and so I only passed one car. However, twelfth place is not a bad result under these circumstances.
