BMW's Marco Wittmann feels he's taken the maximum he could have out of the Zandvoort DTM weekend after retaining his slender points advantage over Jamie Green.

The Team RMG driver arrived into the fifth weekend of the campaign with a two-point lead over Audi's Edoardo Mortara but now instead sits seven-points clear of Team Rosberg's Green.

Wittmann was another who profited from the late Mercedes tyre drama and backed up his second place finish in yesterday's race with fourth in race two.

The 2014 DTM champion's level of consistency has so far been unrivalled. As it stands, Wittmann has only failed to score a point on just one occasion this season.

"I was running P6 and the aim from starting in P7 was to make a few positions. We had a bit of luck so we finished fourth," said Wittmann.

"It's not in our hands. If they struggle with problems on the tyres or don't get the cars to the finish its good for us but it's not in our hands. If they make the mistakes we'll take the points of course so I'm happy with P4.

"I'm pretty happy with the weekend. I think we've taken the maximum out of it. Second and fourth was probably the maximum that could achieve, especially because our race pace wasn't as strong as we thought.

"I'm still happy because 30 points is a good value after the weekend. I'm pretty happy to go into the summer break with that points standing."

BMW had dominated here at Zandvoort last season but the combination of the revised performance weight ruling along with a higher level of degradation meant a victory was out of reach for Wittmann.

"We struggled in the first stint but the pace in the second stint was pretty good compared to the leaders. The leaders were already gone," Wittmann continued.

"We also struggled to follow Robert [Wickens] yesterday so maybe we suffered a bit more with the degradation here than the others."
