Bruno Spengler of Canada who was the runaway points leader in the DTM series early in the season has said that it was the damper failure in the Oschersleben race that cost him the title.  Spengler who drives for HWA Mercedes team has been gracious in defeat and has now said that he will concentrate on becoming the runners up for this year by doing his best at the finale that is coming up later this month at Hockenheim.  Spengler’s analysis of his problem has been supported by Mercedes Motorsport chief Norbert Haug.
