DTM 2020

BMW firms up team slots for seven-car DTM attack

BMW Motorsport has revealed its team line-up for the 2020 DTM, fielding a largely unchanged roster in its two works teams – BMW Team RMG and BMW Team RBM.

Wittmann aiming for third title with RMG

Stefan Reinhold’s Team RMG will once again run two-time DTM champion Marco Wittmann, with the German looking to add a third title in 2020. Alongside him once again will be Timo Glock, the former F1 driver beginning his eighth DTM season. DTM returnee Lucas Auer completes the three-car squad.

RBM looking to build on 2019 promise

Meanwhile, Belgian team principal Bart Mampaey will again run Austrian driver Philipp Eng, who won his first DTM race at Zolder last year, alongside Sheldon van der Linde, the 2019 rookie who deeply impressed in his first year in the category. The pairing is joined by BMW newcomer Jonathan Aberdein, the young South African switching from his customer Audi drive last year.

From these two squads, a third team will be united to fight for the teams’ title: BMW Team RMR will be formed of Auer and Aberdein, and will run from the same garage.

A fourth team – ART Grand Prix – will run a single privateer BMW M4 DTM for DTM newcomer Robert Kubica, who switches to the category after making his F1 racing return with Williams last season.

“It was important to find the right combination of continuity, change, competition and teamwork,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “Things worked well last year – and each team now receives one of our two newcomers. But what matters most is the output – in other words, that we form a strong team and work together more closely than in previous years. That will be one of the key factors for success this year.”
