The future of DTM

With Mercedes-AMG gone for 2019, what's the future of DTM?

According to Wolfgang Ullrich, it's four cylinder engines.

So it was just because one in Germany didnít want it so we continued with V8, and now they are leaving.

Now we are all prepared that in í19 we will have four-cylinder engines and weíll be very, very close.


We have a four-cylinder engine running since about more than half a year. And we are working on the development of the engine. BMW as well.


So I think in í19 engine-wise it will be quite identical.

It will for sure be 4 cylinder engines, my question is - who's going to join? Unless BMW and Audi field 10 cars each, it won't be good for DTM to continue with two manufacturers. Let's suppose both Audi and Mercedes will field 6 cars, the same as now. It will be 12-cars grid.
DTM are in talks with Japanese manufacturers from Super GT and I believe that's the right path. As far as I'm concerned, Berger is a good chairman, he's already implemented some reasonable regulations and I think his in a way radical view is the only chance for DTM to survive.

Super GT and DTM teams competing in each respective series. That's the dream and one I'd love to see.

The Japs will never accept those German rules. This is a no go. Not for all the team in China.

I think the series needs to attract foreign manufacturers other than the Japanese.

Either Alfa Romeo, Renault, or Jaguar would join in should Class One rules are made even cheaper.

Nissan and Toyota have implied in the past that the engine rules were the only things keeping them from joining DTM.
