18 Feb Team Rosberg continues with Müller and Gore
In this year’s DTM season Team Rosberg is racing with the two drivers Nico Müller and Dev Gore. The 29-year-old Swiss Müller, DTM’s runner-up in 2019 and 2020, joined the team from Neustadt an der Weinstraße for the second time in 2021, having already turned the steering wheel for them back in 2014 and 2015. The American Dev Gore, who is five years younger than Müller, is about to start his second year with Team Rosberg. While Müller wants to fight for the DTM title, Gore, who has less experience in motorsports, is planning to further reduce his gap to the top.
Nico Müller: “In 2021, Team Rosberg and I opened a new chapter and it is not over yet. We had set higher goals and will continue to work on achieving them in our second season together. I am confident that we were able to draw the right conclusions from 2021 and will be much stronger this season. Everyone is super hyped and motivated, which you could already feel over the winter. We were able to prepare more precisely since we already have a season with the GT3 car behind us now. DTM is such a competitive series with strong drivers, in which we regularly want to fight for podiums, victories and also want to have a say in the fight for the title.”
Dev Gore: “I’m really looking forward to my second year with Team Rosberg. I feel very comfortable there, the team gave me a lot of support during my first DTM season. Besides, I was able to experience that everyone is exceptionally motivated and is giving everything to push the team back to the top – where it belongs. Personally, I believe the upcoming season will be a little easier for me than the last one, simply because now I know the team, the car, the tracks, and the entire DTM environment. My goal is to get closer to the top.”
Kimmo Liimatainen (Team Principal): “What’s important for us is continuity. For that reason we are delighted that Nico and Dev will continue to be part of Team Rosberg. Our goal is to fight for the title. We know that it won’t be easy, especially in the top-class DTM field, but we’ll give it our all. We want to prove that we can do better than last year. Nico is shining with his experience and his professionalism, and is just remarkably fast. Dev, during his first DTM season last year, was willing to learn and was able to improve. We are optimistic that he can continue this way.”
