Well, yet another Merc-suportred driver is not able to find a foothold, not mentioning a career, in F1. And were there any rumours, that at least one Merc is going to be at GT500 in 2019 with a customer team? Maybe it's time for them to put a reverse over their strange decision to withdraw?

Has Maxime Martin left the BMW fold? Big news if so. Wonder what he does next.

He will not. He left BMW which means he won't be with them in DTM or in GT. Probably he'll switch to another manufacturer. However a very surprising move, I didn't think he had a reason to part ways with BMW.

According to Belgian website Maxime Martin joins Aston Martin for WEC.

Interesting. Honestly it's sad to see him go. He may not have been very spectacular but very solid and finished every season in Top 10 scoring podiums and three wins. A good career and we can only think what could be more from him. For a moment I hoped that a move to Audi (and staying in DTM) is possible but it's definitely not the case.

He will do a lot better in GT endurance races

Oh yes! Max was spectacular in GT racing before he went to DTM. It appears that this will continue with Aston Martin. His exploits in the Z4 at the Nordschleife were utterly epic.

BMW have confirmed their squads for 2018:
RMG - Wittmann, Glock, Farfus
RBM - Spengler, Eriksson, Eng

So no Martin (what we already know) and also no Blomqvist. A shame to see them both go. Tom had a very poor 2017 but in 15 and 16 he showed his potential.

Yep looks good - I can't wait to see them on the GP loop at Brands - should be awesome out on the quick bits

I thought the Lausitzring wasn't going to be used for motorsport any more? Or is that after next season?

not quite - Lausitzring is now owned by DEKRA, who may hire it out for race events, but DEKRA will play no part in promoting an event. DTM was specifically mentioned as a continuing event.

Gerhard Berger, CEO of DTM’s umbrella organisation ITR adds: “I’m delighted that DTM keeps on racing at the Lausitzring – even after the circuit was sold. With the new owner DEKRA, our long-term partners, we could make sure that the Eastern-German DTM enthusiasts also will be provided spectacular touring-car racing".

Is it really that difficult for Eastern-German DTM enthusiasts (!) go to Norisring or Hockenheim? It's only 450 km. It's like for me to go to Nizhny Novgorod racetrack - not a problem for an enthusiast.
