The BMW M2 Cup is part of the DTM platform. As a race car driver, how do you experience the race weekends as part of the DTM?
The DTM races as well as the support series were a lot of fun, the variety was very interesting. Then there were the many fans who were allowed to attend some races. As a driver, you naturally follow the championships closely and make contacts with other teams and drivers, for example from the DTM and DTM Trophy. Everything is in close proximity and as a driver, of course, you always have the next step in mind, where things might lead to. That is what defines the platform and is also a big bonus for the BMW M2 Cup.
How did you perceive the media interest in the cup?
The level of interest was astonishingly high even before the start of the season – more than I had expected. Over the course of the season, however, the interest has risen significantly, as you could see on social media. The fans who were at the race tracks also looked forward to the races, as there was always a lot of action. It was really noticeable, especially at the Norisring, that many people enjoyed watching the cup and also knew about the championship.
What is your plan for next year, where will we see you?
I cannot say that for certain yet. The negotiations for 2022 are in full swing, a plan is slowly emerging, but I cannot say exactly what it is yet. What I can definitely say is that I will drive the BMW M4 GT4 – just as it was intended for the winner of the BMW M2 Cup and is intended again for the 2022 title winner.
