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’. Today, DTM’s super-old hand Timo Scheider will answer our 24 questions. Sine the DTM revival in 2000, he missed just one season: 2005. Last year he scored a total of 51 points to finish 18th in the Championship.
