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’. In today’s sequel of our series, Jamie green will entertain us with his 24 replies- The Briton has been racing in DTM since 2005 and actually used to always be among the top drivers. In the past season, he was the title favourite for a long time but in the end, he didn’t quite make it. With 150 points on his tally, Green finished the season as vice-champion – the best result in his DTM career to date.

Describe your 2015 season by dint of six terms: No comment

My nicest DTM moment in 2015: Pole position In Lausitzring with a half-a-second gap on P2.

My worst/most disappointing DTM moment in 2015: The gearbox failure in the first round of the Spielberg meeting. I was holding the lead and was forced into retirement with just three laps completed.

My personal highlights of the year 2015 (both private and job-related):  Winning both races on the Lausitzring weekend.

That’s what annoyed me in particular (both in my private life and job-related): My wife’s miscarriage in March.

My favourite DTM colleague: Mattias Ekstrom, he’s hard to beat

My most exciting/most thrilling 2015 DTM weekend: Lausitzring, what else?

The biggest surprise of the 2015 season, for me: Nothing surprised me in particular.

This change / these changes I would love to see for the 2016 DTM season: Ah, there’s quite a number: - Softer tyres, - 600bhp, - No flicks, - No success ballast, - 2 DRS “Zones” with detection points. - Using DRS always allowed (in the zones) in qualifying.

If I hadn’t become a motor racer I would have liked to be a …?: Footballer, Singer or musician. They all can connect better with their audience / fans than racing drivers.

That’s what I like particularly: Spending quiet time with my wife & kids.

That’s what I don’t like at all: Arrogant people
