René Rast is regarded as one of the greatest drivers in the history of the DTM, with three titles and 25 victories since his debut in 2016. Despite missing a race due to Formula E commitments, Rast reached his 100th race at the Lausitzring, making him the third-most experienced driver on the grid. Although he currently sits ninth in the championship, he admits that winning this year’s title is unlikely. However, Rast is determined to add to his championship tally in the future and has his sights set on surpassing the record held by Mercedes legend Bernd Schneider, who has five titles. Rast’s departure from McLaren in Formula E will allow him to focus fully on his role with BMW in 2024, including competing in the World Endurance Championship. While Rast has struggled this season with podium finishes at the Norisring being his only highlight, he remains optimistic about his future performance.
