From looking at that video, are you sure that's a w204 DTM? That looked like a w203 DTM car to me.

The Mercedes DTM car was doing donuts and burnouts; the brake line may have overheated and caught on fire.

Thats what it look to me too? bottum line that can happen to any car, frozen caliper create heat, excesive braking creates heat. a fuel leak, remember thats a modifide car and who knows mabe a foreing material create the fire you can not assume a bad brakes on a rasing car

After looking at it again, it definitely was a w204 dtm. So weird that the dtm's actually look similar.

Yea you are right, but like I said thatís a raising car anything can happen and I doubt the brakes failed.
