The 2014 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season was the fifteenth season of the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, since the series' resumption in 2000. The season started on 4 May at Hockenheim, and ended on 19 October at the same venue, after a total of ten rounds.

In his second season in the series, BMW Team RMG driver Marco Wittmann became champion after his consistent finishes throughout the season left him with a comfortable 50-point winning margin. Wittmann took his first series victory in the opening race at Hockenheim, and quickly added a second victory at the Hungaroring. He also won back-to-back races at the Red Bull Ring and the Nürburgring, before clinching the title at EuroSpeedway Lausitz. Mattias Ekström finished the season as runner-up for Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline, winning the season's final two races at Zandvoort and Hockenheim – Audi's only victories of the 2014 season. Another Audi driver clinched third in the championship, as defending champion Mike Rockenfeller finished in the position for Audi Sport Team Phoenix; he took three second places during the year, but went winless. Other drivers to take victories were Wittmann's team-mate Maxime Martin at Moscow Raceway, with HWA triumvirate Robert Wickens (Norisring), Christian Vietoris (Oschersleben) and Pascal Wehrlein (Lausitz) taking victories for Mercedes; for Vietoris and Wehrlein, it was their first in the series.

Race calendar and results

A provisional ten-round calendar was announced on 16 October 2013.[12]

In July, it was announced that the Chinese round – originally scheduled for 28 September on a temporary street circuit in Guangzhou – was cancelled, as the modifications necessary for erecting the circuit proved to be far more extensive than first planned. As a result, a replacement round was scheduled for the same weekend, held at Zandvoort in the Netherlands.[13]
