So start on the Moscow Raceway I look forward, but worried".
Niko Muller Audi Sport Team Rosberg "I know from the site, I like it. It is good that in comparison with last year, now we're going on a long configuration rings. I will try to benefit from their experience of performances at the Moscow Raceway, and, of course, we hope that the characteristics of the track will suit our car.

Augusto Farfus BMW Team RBM "Moscow route is narrow, there is a lot of turns that require 2nd gear, but on the second sector, which last year was not used, there is really fast turns. Considering the dimensions of machines DTM think we need to act on the longer tracks, with quick turns, so I can't wait to start. On the back straight, we will be able to use the system DRS that will facilitate overtaking, and the more overtaking - the more spectacular".
