BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt stated, "In July of 2009, a very clear decision was made.This (decision) stands. We are very well positioned in terms of our motor sport programme and this is not going to change at all in the medium term."
Currently BMW is complaining they are not competitive in ALMS seeking to have special rules implemented to allow them to race a car based on the Z4 with a V8 they do not actually sell and they seem to be content racing in DTM with Mercedes and Audi. We remind you, Mercedes does race in Formula 1 with the big boys AND in DTM.
With BMW giving up on naturally aspirated race inspired powerplants and focusing on profit nobody should be surprised BMW remains huddled on the sidelines counting their money and trying to figure out where else they can stick Motorsport badges. Those badges may have more value if BMW competed in the highest level of Motorsport.
