It's a shame he never got a chance in F1 due to the whole "not bringing enough sponsor money to the table" thing. He's always been at near the top of the table in DTM, so awesome that he could finally seal it, and not painfully end up in 2nd or 3rd as he has in the past. DiResta got an F1 ride for winning DTM, but don't see this happening for Bruno.

Also, Robert Wickens also driving in DTM now vs. F1, even though he beat JEV in Renault Championship, yet JEV got the F1 ride. Need to get some sponsors stepping up to the table to support Canadian talent!

Amazing accomplishment in the last race for Bruno. It was a blast to watch.

After 20 years not being in the DTM series - to win this way was big time.

Quote from TSN....................

Bruno Spengler of St-Hippolyte, Que won his first ever DTM title on Sunday after beating out championship leader Gary Paffett at Hockenheim for a BMW victory.

Spengler, 29, took BMW's first title in over 20 years by a mere four points.

He earned his season-high fourth win of the season, while Paffett finished second in the 42-lap race.

Spengler became the first Canadian be crowned champion of a major international professional racing circit since Paul Tracy won the 2003 Champ Car title and the first to win a European-based series since Jacques Villeneuve won the Formula One world championship in 1997.

I disagree.
He's still young and my guess is he's next inline to get called up to the major leagues as an F1 driver within the next two seasons. I also believe he's already received some promising phone calls. I've been following DTM and Bruno for several years and that's my 2 cents.
