Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters

Can someone please tell me why BMW is not in DTM for 2010? WTCC is slow and boring and the rules are starting to get stupid.

DTM is the ultimate in touring car racing, shouldn't the so called ultimate driving machine be in it again?

It's a reason for joy that the FIA doesn't have its dirty fingers at least in that series.
