You are correct and even the engines are pretty much alike since they all use the same engine control units from Bosch. In reality there really is not much difference in all the cars. IMO it really comes down to the drivers. Lets see if a MB driver will win it next year.
That can happen easily all MB has to do is hire one of BMW's great drivers.

Yeah, slightly annoying that it was timo that span Augusto! But, Augusto was locked in to 2nd place anyway. The unfortunate thing was with Hand also being at the back the BMW were out of the teams title by the end of the first lap.

Anway congrats to BMW on the manufacturers title... looking forward to next year and the BMW M4 DTM.

Curious to see if they keep Priaulx on, apparently he has no contract yet for 2014.

No Audi won the main championship (drivers) with Mike Rockenfeller.

So the quickest most consistent car and driver was from Audi.

Didnt say that. I was referencing how someone else said that mb could win if they stole the bmw drivers.

In racing you have the top tier of drivers and one so calles best but anything can happen especially when you dont finish some races. You can theoretically win by never coming in first and never crashing with points.
