Previous: 2012 Next: 2014
Mike Rockenfeller (left) won his first Drivers' Championship while Augusto Farfus (right) finished second in the championship.

The 2013 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season was the fourteenth season of the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, since the series' resumption in 2000.

Bruno Spengler started the season as the defending drivers' champion. BMW was the defending manufacturers' champion, and BMW Team Schnitzer the defending teams' champion. Mike Rockenfeller clinched his first DTM title at the penultimate round of the season at Zandvoort, driving for Audi.

This was the first season since the 2005 season without any female DTM drivers due to Susie Wolff and Rahel Frey left the series after 2012 season.

Rule changesEdit

TechnicalEdit

  • For the first time that all-DTM cars introduced the F1-style Drag Reduction Systems (DRS) to adjust the rear wing and assist overtaking with rear wing inclination angle to 15°.
  • The minimum weight of the cars has been increased from 1,100 kg (2,425 lb) to 1,110 kg (2,447 lb) to better aerodynamic reasons.

Team changesEdit

  • After competing with six cars in 2012, BMW increased its involvement in the series by expanding to eight cars.[1] Team MTEK ran the new team for the marque.[3]
  • Mercedes-Benz initially submitted eight entries to the grid, but later scaled back their commitment to six cars after parting company with Persson Motorsport.[5]

Driver changesEdit

Race calendar and resultsEdit

A provisional eleven-round calendar was announced on 23 October 2012,[13] and the final schedule was published on 21 November 2012.[14] A revised calendar was released by series organisers on 19 December 2012, with the Norisring round moved back by a week to avoid a clash with the German Grand Prix. To accommodate the change of date, the Zandvoort meeting was moved from July to September, and would become the penultimate event of the season, with the Oschersleben and second Hockenheim meetings also being held later than originally scheduled.[15]

Notes
  1. ^ Mattias Ekström was disqualified from the race after infringing parc ferme regulations. Following an appeal by Abt Sportsline to the Deutscher Motor Sport Bund, the disqualification was confirmed; however, drivers were not promoted in the race results, and as such, no driver was officially recognised as having finished in first place.[16]

Calendar changesEdit

  • The 2013 season saw the DTM series travel to Russia for the first time, with the inclusion of a round at the Moscow Raceway scheduled for August.
  • The non-championship exhibition rounds held at the Munich Olympic Stadium in 2011 and 2012 was discontinued in 2013.
  • The race at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Spain – which had been included on the DTM calendar in 2011 and 2012 – was discontinued.
