I usually watch the last race of a DTM season (I try to watch as many races as possible but the final race is a must) and yesterday was no exception. It was a great finale and a very tense fight between Paffett and Spengler. It was great to watch Paffett fighting until the end, his eyes looked as if he was ready to eat Spengler if that would give him the championship. And it was painful to watch Gary lose it.
Paffett lead the standings after each of the first 9 races but not after the 10th when it mattered most… On the other hand, Spengler had a similar experience in some of the last seasons so this was kind of revenge.
Anyway, a great season for Spengler, BMW and for DTM in general. Coulthard is now leaving, Michael Schumacher won’t join the series and hopefully we won’t see his younger brother there in 2013 either. DTM should have the best touring car drivers in the world, not lost ex-F1 drivers.
