How have you settled in during your first weeks at BMW M Motorsport?

Andreas Roos: “The first weeks were really intense, but also very nice. I have been received warmly by the whole team and there has been plenty of advice and support for me. Working together in this way really is a huge amount of fun; the motorsport spirit is everywhere. I am delighted and things could not be better.”

A lot of people are saying that I’m now where I belong.

What is your general assessment of the BMW M Motorsport setup for the next few years with LMDh, GT3, GT4 and M2 CS Racing?

Roos: “As far as I am concerned, the BMW M Motorsport programme boasts a perfect setup and portfolio. Starting with the BMW M2 CS Racing, which is real club racing, we move from the one-make cup subject to the next level, the GT4. This is a very, very popular car and has already recorded a large number of successes. We are currently working on development of its successor. That is classic customer racing. We then continue with the GT3, which also represents the transition from classic customer racing to works-supported customer racing, where works drivers appear in competition. However, we can only offer work-supported customer racing if we also have a works programme. That pinnacle for us is LMDh, where we have committed to competing with a works programme. This combination of all the possibilities that we have is the perfect combination.”
