After two podiums and a win in the last three rounds of the DTM championship, Spengler’s Dutch weekend was a different story, even if he took the last point available on Sunday.

Free practice did not allow the Canadian driver to show his talent and he only managed to get to 17th in Race 1 qualifying.

Bruno gained a few places at the start of the race, getting up to 13th place. His team’s decision to adopt an alternate strategy and late pit stop meant he was even leading for a while, after all the other drivers had pitted. He finally observed his pit stop on lap 29 of 37 and saw the chequered flag in 14th position.

On Sunday, the BMW #7 got better results when he qualified 9th. Race 2 regularly saw him hovering in the top 10 and he finished the race in 10th position, grabbing the last point on offer.

Spengler is currently 10th in the championship.

“On the whole, it was a good weekend for BMW”, says Spengler. “It is a shame we could not get the correct setup for the car. There was not a lot we could do during the race. We will now focus on the Nürburgring.”
