In 2016, 24 drivers will be battling to make their big dream come true: winning the DTM champion’s trophy. International top-level drivers will be staging entertaining duels in 18 races on a total of nine weekends. We want to introduce the contenders from BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz in detail and have asked each one of them 24 questions. In no particular order, the answers will be published over the next weeks as a part of our series ’24 drivers – 24 questions’. This time it’s Edoardo Mortara’s turn. The Italian succeeded in taking the battle for the title down to the final race meeting of the season. In the end, however, he had to settle for finishing fourth with 143 points on his tally.

Describe your 2015 season by dint of six terms: Exciting, fun, challenging, ups and downs, frustrating, positive 

My nicest DTM moment in 2015: My win in the Saturday race at Spielberg

My worst/most disappointing DTM moment in 2015: The season finale at Hockenheim. I travelled to Hockenheim as second-placed driver in the championship and despite finishing third on Saturday I dropped back to fourth position, in the end. 

My personal highlights of the year 2015 (both private and job-related): The weekend at Spielberg. I won the Saturday race and secured another podium on Sunday by finishing third. 

That’s what annoyed me in particular (both in my private life and job-related): People I can’t rely on, lying or not keeping their words.

My favourite DTM colleague: Adrien Tambay, my 2015 team-mate. We shared nice moments and being in the same garage offered us the possibility to get to know each other better

My most exciting/most thrilling 2015 DTM weekend: Quite obviously the answer again has to be Spielberg.

The biggest surprise of the 2015 season, for me: The season kick-off at Hockenheim.  After our difficult tests I was amazed by my competitiveness in the first two races of the season.

This change / these changes I would love to see for the 2016 DTM season: In general some changes regarding sporting rules like the performance weights etc… I also would prefer to return to the option tyres run on option tires as they provide more mechanical grip.
