A word from … Edoardo Mortara

The Audi motorist about weeks with copiousness of accumulation and a dual DTM races during a Moscow Raceway.

The birth of your daughter, 24 Hours of Spa, a feat in a Audi R8 LMS Cup in Asia and a DTM in Russia – You’ve had a lot going on in your life given Zandvoort …

First of all, a personal aspects have to be distant from operative life. The birth of a daughter on Jul 19 was a defining impulse for my mother and me. On a sporting side, we had a event to expostulate a integrate of GT races that we always suffer a lot. In a 24-hour competition during Spa, we competed for a initial time. That’s a good competition with a extensive atmosphere. The group was illusory too. My joining in a Audi R8 LMS Cup for Phoenix Racing Asia during Sepang also went unequivocally well. So, I’ve had a good time.

Back to a DTM: because was Audi struggling so most in both subordinate sessions during a Moscow Raceway?

Honestly, I’ve always had a sense that BMW was personification with us and showed their genuine intensity this weekend. But we also need to investigate because in subordinate – generally on Sunday – we were so distant divided from being in contention. We rather have to demeanour for a problem with us than with a others.

The dual races rarely differed from any other, with sleet on Saturday and a quip on Sunday. Your assessment?

I consider we showed a clever opening in both races. On Saturday, we should have finished a small over in front, though I’m happy about carrying scored points in both races.

On Sunday, we overtook a lot of cars. What was a best overtaking maneuver?

That’s tough to say. we had a integrate of good maneuvers on Saturday as well. On Sunday, it was good fun starting from a back and advancing to sixth place.

How was a final spin from your perspective?

I attempted to make adult another position. Unfortunately, that didn’t work. The approach Robert (Wickens) gathering was really satisfactory and we didn’t wish any hit with him. In a end, we crossed a line side by side with a opening of 0.0 seconds …

With a 30-point necessity separating we from Marco Wittmann, what’s still probable in a final 6 DTM races?
