After his success with BMW at the Lausitzring, Bruno Spengler expressed his feelings to Auto123.com.
The Canadian driver, who gave BMW its first pole position since its DTM return, has won the race despite the huge pressure put on him by Gary Paffett and his Mercedes.
"We didn't expect that," told Spengler to Auto123.com.
"We really didn't expect to be able to win already in our second race. To be the first driver to take victory for BMW for its return to the DTM series makes me feel very proud, and I feel the same way I felt after my first victory at the Norisring back in 2006."
"We thought that the Mercedes cars would be quicker during the long runs, Spengler added, and Paffett put a lot of pressure on me. But I made no mistakes, and the team made a wonderful job, and had a perfect reaction after the changes of the strategies from the Mercedes team. Plus, the pit stops were very quick. That's a great day for me and the team..."
