The 2010 12 Hours of Sebring is already underway and BMW driver Dirk Muller already has already had enough drama to last him the entire weekend. The weekend started off on a high note after Muller set the fastest time in qualifying last Friday but because of some irregularities found on his BMW M3, his best time was reneged and he was forced to sit all the way down to the 13th place on the GT2 grid.

If that wasn’t enough, Muller ended up missing the recon laps before the start of the race because, earlier in the day, he ended up crashing his M3 into a wall.

With everything seemingly going against him heading into the start of Sebring 2010, Muller began the race on the pit lane and as soon as the race got underway, Muller showed why he was one of the dark horses to stake claim to the race as he maneuvered past a crowd of Porsches on his way to placing fourth in GT2 after an hour of racing.

Check out the video and see what Muller had to say about his rather eventful weekend so far.

O well, I mean of course everyone wants to finish the race at a good position but to finish it even on 13th place is a good thing. At least he is safe and he was able to enjoy the race. I’m going to watch the highlights of the race so I hope that they show it up somewhere soon.
