Audi - BMW war getting ugly in DTM? Audi DTM director Dieter Gass rejects BMW allegations.

By Tarek Ramchani Following the eventful Nürburgring DTM race there were some protests from BMW Motorsport regarding Audi’s behaviour during the race.

At BMW they believe that Audi drivers ruined Bruno Spengler’s race with hard contact on track. The Canadian had many moments of contact with Audi RS 5 DTM cars during the race. Spengler finished the race in fourteenth place, no points and the gap between himself and the series leader, Mike Rockenfeller, increased up to 39 points.

“More or less every Audi drove into me today, so car was really damaged on its left side after the first lap. I won’t say it’s intentional, but you have to look at the facts. It was aggressive again, a bit like stock-car. To be honest, I think it was a little bit over the limit, as this is the second time I finished with half a car in two races." More about BMW Motorsport’s reactions, including quotes from Bruno Spengler and BMW Motorsport director Mr. Jens Marquardt, can be seen atTouringCarTimes **here**.

At Audi there has of course been a reaction to this. DTM director at Audi Sport, Mr. Dieter Gass, clearly denied any strategy to harm Bruno Spengler, rejecting any accusation that the Audi Sport teams deliberately asked their drivers to block the Canadian’s progress.

"We have our race drivers and they’re paid to race, not give positions away. You saw today that they were fighting very hard and very fair with each other; almost as hard as as they were with Bruno. I don’t think I saw anything unfair manouevers, though." More about Mr Dieter Gass’ reactions can be seen at TouringCarTimes here.

F1: Van der Garde and Sauber set to reach financial settlement

Giedo van der Garde’s case against the Sauber Formula One team looks set to come to a conclusion in the next couple of days after the parties finalised a settlement.

The Dutchman and the Swiss squad were embroiled in a legal battle during the Australian Grand Prix weekend, as he claimed he was unfairly ditched by the team when he had a contract to race in 2015.

An Australian court ruled in favour…

Yes, a green flag was waving, but know the whole story | News | Motorsport.com

I found a very good article about the whole crash and its causes, considering the green flag situation as well, that I completely agree on, especially that last part:

“You are playing with fire FIA….and you’re eventually going to get burned”

This is so true, how can so few have been changed in over 30 years???

Michael Waltrip Increases Social Media Reach, Joins Motorsport.com as Advisor (Bleacher Report)

First of two (intended) articles on Michael Waltrip after a phone interview conducted this morning through Bleacher Report. This one details his new association with well-known racing news and photography website Motorsport.com, and how Waltrip will improve the site with his election to its advisory board.

Unlike with FOX and SPEED, where he provides race commentary and occasional written pieces online, Waltrip’s role will remain mostly behind the scenes. "I’ve got my hands in every aspect of the NASCAR world, not only as the part time race car driver but as the full time TV guy and race team owner,“ he said. "They just want to have my insight and my knowledge, and I think it’ll make Motorsport.com more appealing to fans.”

*This article has received top headline placement on Bleacher Report’s NASCAR section as of Tuesday evening, April 24, 2012.
