The Frenchman – a multiple race winner in the defunct A1GP open-wheeler series before he joined the German touring car championship – was sacked by Audi in the wake of his huge opening-lap accident at in the penultimate race at Adria.
Prémat’s best DTM race finishes in four seasons of competition are a pair of third placings.
It remains unlikely that Prémat will be on the DTM grid in 2011, so he is biding his time and aiming for a sports car role until opportunities open up again at the end of the year.
“There is only BMW coming in for now, so I will get in contact with them. I have four years of experience, so maybe it’s good for them to have a driver who has already driven in DTM,” Prémat told AUTOSPORT.
“"I’m working hard to find a good seat. There is nothing in DTM for 2011, so I’m working to drive in sports cars. There are still some good drives available, so we are talking,” he added.
