DTM is apparently at the top of the list should Romain Grosjean's bid to return to Formula One in 2012 not work out.

The Swiss born Frenchman and new GP2 champion is hoping to move up from the reserve and occasional 'Friday' role to become Kimi Raikkonen's race teammate at Lotus in 2012.

But it has emerged that, alongside German youngster Marco Wittmann, Grosjean will test BMW's new M3 car for the German touring car series this week at Monteblanco, in the south of Spain.

"Both (Grosjean and F3 driver Wittmann) have shown what they are capable of on numerous occasions in their racing series. We are looking forward to seeing how they handle the BMW M3 DTM," said BMW motor sport director Jens Marquardt.
