BMW M and BMW Motorsport have officially merged.Mike Krack, former senior chief engineer of BMW (F1, DTM), engineer of Porsches LMP1 and engineer at SauberF1, will be responsible for BMWs Motorsport commitments. He will report directly to Markus Flasch.

I think thats a good thing. It also fuels rumors of BMW joining the LMDH class. Krack is a real motorsport expert, unlike his predecessor.
This will also have an interesting impact on the M cars. In summer 2020, Flasch said that the M cars will move closer to the Motorsport cars, technically.
