The BMW RMG driver produced a dominant drive to lead from start to finish at the Hungaroring to move top of the drivers’ championship, but he was reluctant to discuss any title bid so early in the campaign.
Wittmann instead chose to focus on another impressive display from BMW and praise the strategy of his engineers to earn him pole on Saturday and then the race win.
“I am not wasting any thoughts on the title, we are just working from one race to another,” said the German. “This is a great success, because in the closing stages, you never know whether the drivers with option tyres can still close up.
“However, our strategy worked out.
“I built up a huge advantage and then held on to it without making any mistakes.”
Wittmann goes into the fourth round in Nuremberg with a 19-point advantage over compatriot Mike Rockenfeller, with Audi Abt’s Edoardo Mortara in third with 27 points.
