Hawkwood should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
DTM 2016

Well, it seems from what I've read so far that there'll be likely very few driver changes for 2016.

I've read that Audi has said it will not change any drivers, or maybe that was BMW?

Anyway, one change there could be is Robert Kubica.
In this Autosport piece it says DTM is a possibility:

Though in this week's paper magazine it says DTM is almost a certainty.

Any thoughts, rumours etc. for DTM 2016?

There is of course the long-rumoured Wehrlein to Manor move. If that happens there will be a new seat that perhaps Kubica could fill, or someone else (Rosenqvist?)

Ocon is a no brainer if Merc is not willing to put money on Ocon for GP2.

In fact he was rather mighty impressive during his FP1 outing at Hockenheim , just 2 tenths shy of Pascal and Christian on same weight,fuel an tyres condition while driving for the first time the 2015 C Class Mercedes.

Wehrlein moving up to F1 (Manor), Ocan replacing him at AMG?

They could choose to promote Juncadella at HWA but Ocon would'nt be a huge surprise.

If he does get along as quickly to DTM as he did in GP3 and F3 i don't see how it would be a problem.

Ocon will probably take part to DTM rookie test early in december which means that he will miss GP2 and GP3 tests.

Ocon to DTM seems written to the wall.

And Tonio Giovinazzi and Audi? The man did not take three years to make a pair of shoes.

It's official: There won't be a turbo engine in DTM for 2017. In fact, they plan to delay the new engines until 2019. You know what? Why should I bother to watch the DTM ever again? It's basically the same stale product ever since 2006 and the series organisers have just blown the last big chance to change the product for the better. So why should I watch? Hell, if I want proper German touring car racing, there's TCR Germany next year, a series which hopefully won't be ruined by politicking manufacturers.

I'm guessing GTA/SuperGT wont be happy about that... We'll never see any SuperGT cars in DTM, and no DTM cars in SuperGT, and no world final. What a waste.

I can agree with you!

Honestly, would it be better if ITR close DTM for good a make an open-wheel racing series for those big 3 German manufacturers to groom their drivers.

Why should they? The top tier national series in Germany has always been production based or silhouette. There is no point whatsoever in making it open wheel.

But I think he's onto something. For me it feels like the only really popular form of racing in Germany is Formula One. DTM also likes to pretend that they are Formula One, but only with a tin-top. So why not go full force and do an open-wheel series? Granted, such a suggestion would be ******** and it would simply be another open-wheel series in the eyes of an outside observer. But still, it wouldn't make that much a difference if DTM or an open-wheel series was Germany's top series.

By the way, the 2016 schedule is out: http://www.touringcartimes.com/2015/...-dtm-calendar/
