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.

MotoGP rookie Marc Marquez says he is no rush to start winning in the category despite his Honda team boss reckoning he will be strong from the start. Shuhei Nakamoto said earlier this month he believes Marquez, who took the Moto2 title last year, will be able to fight with the likes of team-mate Dani Pedrosa and world champion Jorge Lorenzo right from the start of his MotoGP career. While Marquez admitted Nakamoto’s backing is a confidence boost, the Spaniard believes he has to go step by step.

Last year’s four-lap average for pole position was 227.472 mph, set by Alex Tagliani. “I’d be disappointed if we didn’t get to that 220-222 (mph) range, and that last little bit will come as teams dial the cars in to the track during the week of Indy and 225 is the target,” said vice president of technology Will Phillips.

Bruno Spengler believes honing pitstops and race strategies quickly will be crucial to BMW’s chances of success in its return DTM campaign in 2012. The German manufacturer is returning to the series after 20 years away next year, with Spengler, who finished third in the 2011 standings, switching over from Mercedes. Speaking for the first time publicly as a BMW driver, Spengler said that perfecting pitstops, which take between two and four seconds in the DTM as opposed to the much longer stationary times in the GT contests that BMW is used to, would be a key element during the season.
