Describe your 2015 season by dint of six terms: A difficult season with ups and downs.

My nicest DTM moment in 2015: My win in the Saturday race at Zandvoort. It was the first BMW win in the season.

My worst/most disappointing DTM moment in 2015: Definitely Moscow. I held the lead in the Saturday race for a long time but then I lost time due to a puncture and had to settle for finishing second

My personal highlights of the year 2015 (both private and job-related): No doubt, my triumph at Zandvoort. Another highlight was the moment when I got my BMW M4 DTM Champion Edition.

That’s what annoyed me in particular (both in my private life and job-related): The tyre issue was extremely annoying. 

My favourite DTM colleague: Timo Glock, because we jointly contested our first DTM season and get on really well with one another.
