Mercedes DTM driver Bruno Spengler jumping ship to BMW for 2012
This is a very interesting bit of news for motorsport fans and a bit of a sad one for Mercedes DTM fans. As you all know, BMW will be racing in DTM next year
. Many wondered how they would do in their first season back after an absence of two decades. Well, they certainly will be poised to do well by taking the current leader in the DTM driver standings from Mercedes. This move strengthens BMW and hurts Mercedes shifting the balance of power already for the 2012 season.
