After breaking a near two year win-less streak, BMW's Timo Glock says he reaped the rewards by attacking today's first Oschersleben DTM race 'like a lion'.

Glock had already claimed a hard fought maiden pole position during the morning qualifying but the ex-F1 driver went one better with a faultless drive to win the first race and head Team MTEK's first ever one-two result ahead of Bruno Spengler.

Spengler was able to run with Glock for the first half of the race but the 33-year old eventually broke the Canadian's resolve and was able to eek out a comfortable two second cushion ahead of his team mate.

"This victory feels fantastic. It was hugely enjoyable to drive the car today. However, I had to push in the race," said Glock.

"I wanted to get out of the DRS window as soon as possible, to avoid the threat posed by my team-mate Bruno Spengler. I fought like a lion all race and was rewarded with my second DTM win.

"I am pleased for my team that our work has finally paid off and we even managed a one-two. The guys deserved that."

The MTEK driver entered the weekend sitting 17th in the championship but his first win since Hockenheim 2013 has raised Glock up the order to 13th - only seven points away from reaching the top ten.

Meanwhile, Spengler's second place also moves him closer to the championship picture. Although the 2012 champion remains fifth in the standings, the Canadian has reduced to the gap from himself and Pascal Wehrlein to 27 points.

"You don't get to celebrate a one-two every day. This is a great result for my team. Congratulations to Timo Glock on his second DTM win. The whole performance from BMW was fantastic today," said Spengler.

"Everything went perfectly for us. I scored a lot of points and am now back in the title race in the Drivers' Championship. We must still keep our feet on the ground but we have every reason to celebrate today."
