Tambay runs with the #27 on his Audi RS5 DTM, which is run by hte Abt Sportsline team. At the season opening DTM Festival in Hockenheim, Tambay failed to score a point, suffering a retirement in the second race due to damage.
After a relatively brief stint in karting from 2001 to 2006, Tambay made his debut in the 2007 Formula BMW Germany Championship, ending the year fourth in the standings. Third place the following season saw him step up to the Formula 3 Euro Series in 2009, although, unlike many of his DTM rivals, it was to only be a single season. After failing to register a point during a disjointed season, Tambay moved on to the Auto GP Series.
Two years in Auto GP saw Tambay take two wins and a best championship result of fourth. He combined this with a limited 2010 campaign in GP3, finishing 20th, and Formula Renault 3.5 in 2011. At the end of 2011, however, Tambay was approached by Audi to join their DTM charge in 2012.
Tambay's first DTM campaign in 2012 saw him stand on the podium at the penultimate round in Valencia, ending the season in 10th overall. Yet, it took until the second half of 2013 before Tambay became a consistent points finisher, scoring at four of the final five races, on his way to 14th in the standings. In 2014, Tambay started strongly with a third place at the season opener in Hockenheim, followed by points at the following three rounds. Only one more points finish, however, saw Tambay fall to 14th in the final standings.
Abt Sportsline retained Tambay for 2015, partnering him with Edoardo Mortara in their second pair of Audi RS5s. After finishing fifteenth in the opening race of the DTM Festival, Tambay retired from the second race after damage sustained throughout.
