BMW has rubbished suggestions that it is considering a Formula 1 return. In the wake of Honda announcing it is coming back to grand prix racing in 2015, F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone tipped BMW to follow suit in the not too distant future. However, BMW itself has distanced itself from such a scenario, and its motorsport boss Jens Marquardt made it clear on Monday that the company was happy focusing on its DTM and sportscar activities

Timo Scheider took pole position for the opening round of the 2013 DTM after going fastest on a drying track at Hockenheim. The two-time champion had gone second-fastest in the third part of qualifying in his Abt Sportsline Audi RS5, and so was the third driver to set his time in the single-lap Q4. His 1m35.918s lap knocked Augusto Farfus off the top spot with just Christian Vietoris left to complete his lap

April 30th, 2013
BMW motorsport chief Jens Marquardt has insisted that his cars will not begin the season as overwhelming favourites for the DTM title, despite dominating winter testing. M3s topped all four days of rain-affected testing at Hockenheim earlier this month courtesy of Augusto Farfus, Joey Hand and Marco Wittmann, while the latter was also quickest on one of the four days at Barcelona in March. But Marquardt, who oversaw a comeback DTM campaign in 2012 that ended with Bruno Spengler winning the drivers’ title, Schnitzer the teams’ prize and BMW the manufacturer’s crown, said that a repeat is far from guaranteed.
April 27th, 2013
Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro both dipped under official lap record pace to put Honda firmly on top in the first World Touring Car practice at the Slovakia Ring. The pair spent almost the entire session at the top of the timesheets, with only a brief salvo from the RML Chevrolet of Yvan Muller denying them a clean sweep. It was Monteiro who began fastest, getting to within two thousandths of a second of Norbert Michelisz’s 2012 pole time in the opening nine minutes.

The Brazilian BMW team competing in new FIA GT Series is aiming to contest the Spa 24 Hours in July with a line-up including ex-Formula 1 racer Ricardo Zonta.

April 12th, 2013
Joey Hand kept BMW on top of the timesheets for a third straight day of DTM testing at Hockenheim on Thursday. The American, who has switched from the RMG team to RBM for his second year in the series, set the pace in 1m33.284s on his final lap of an afternoon session that began wet and dried out as time wore on
April 6th, 2013
Yvan Muller continued his dominant start to his 2013 World Touring Car campaign by topping both practice sessions on the streets of Marrakech. Following his perfect weekend at Monza – where he scored pole position and two race wins – Muller has so far headed every session of the new season save for the cursory Monza warm-up. He was not without competition however, with RML Chevrolet team-mate Tom Chilton and the two works Hondas running him close in both sessions.

Tonio Liuzzi set a blistering time to lead a Mercedes 1-2-3 in free practice for the International Superstars Series opener at Monza.

Gary Paffett kept Mercedes on top of the timesheets on the second day of DTM pre-season testing at Barcelona.
March 23rd, 2013

January 24th, 2013
Formula 1 refugee Timo Glock felt he settled in quickly as he made his DTM testing debut with BMW at Valencia on Thursday. Glock lost his Marussia F1 drive earlier this week, but swiftly secured the BMW DTM try-out. The German firm, which took Bruno Spengler to last year’s DTM title on its series return , still has one vacancy in its 2013 line-up
January 14th, 2013
Maxime Martin has joined BMW’s American Le Mans Series line-up for the coming season, as well as being named its DTM test driver.

Martin will be one of four full-time drivers of the new Z4 GTEs in the ALMS.

December 2nd, 2012
BMW will promote test driver Marco Wittmann into a race seat as it expands to eight cars for the 2013 DTM. Wittmann finished second in the 2011 Formula 3 Euro Series before switching to his BMW role this year. BMW motorsport boss Jens Marquardt said the 23-year-old German had proved he was worthy of a race chance

The Briton’s lap of 2m31.061s was 0.274 seconds faster than championship outsider and RML Chevrolet team-mate Yvan Muller.
