Posted on 19. Jun, 2017 by in Audi Canada

Dieter Gass (Head of Audi Motorsport)

“The DTM weekend felt like an intensely prolonged one, with ups and downs. On Saturday, after a good subordinate and a good start, we didn’t respond fast adequate when a initial cars pitted early. Then a reserve automobile was deployed and instead of a feat we had to settle usually for positions 4 to six. That was intensely frustrating and still hurts, that done it all a some-more critical for us to strike behind on Sunday. The second competition was illusory for Audi, yet we’d indeed been formulation for such a outcome on both days. For René Rast I’m impossibly happy: he’s been delivering an overwhelming entrance deteriorate in a DTM.”

“It was a near-perfect weekend. ‘Near’ since we was on stick position twice, yet on lectern ‘only’ once. On Saturday, a improved outcome would no doubt have been possible. But you’ve got no control over when a reserve automobile comes out. Otherwise, on Saturday, we’d have been means to grasp a identical outcome as on Sunday. But, obviously, I’m mega happy about my initial victory. Before a weekend, a suspicion of withdrawal here as a championship personality didn’t cranky my mind.”

Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM #53) unfit (position 7) / position 5

“The weekend was difficult. Seventh place on Saturday was okay. We done rather of a wrong choice in plan and were influenced by a early reserve automobile period. After a race, we was disqualified. Now we need to wait and see if I’ll get behind a points. At a finish of subordinate on Sunday, we didn’t conduct a good lap, that done a competition difficult. we was means to pass dual cars and had a good race, yet a bad array stop. It was a weekend with ups and downs.”

Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM #5) position 5 / position 2

“I’m confident with my opening in subordinate and my competition pace. My start on Saturday was flattering good but, unfortunately, reduction than ideal on Sunday. On a whole, though, we done a large step forwards and I’m really happy with this weekend.”

Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM #99) position 4 / position 10

“The weekend wasn’t as good as expected. we consider we could simply have clinched dual top-five formula since subordinate was flattering good. The competition on Sunday cost many points. We had an emanate before a start and, to make things worse, a stop went wrong too. We’ve been in a points 6 times, yet a deteriorate is still long. We design to be winning races again and afterwards we’ll be in front again too.”

Nico Müller (Playboy Audi RS 5 DTM #51) position 10 / position 4

“Following a good start on Sunday, we were indeed aiming for a podium. But Mattias (Ekström) played his cards good and a plan didn’t utterly vessel out. That’s because we forsaken from second place behind to fourth. The BMW that still snuck adult from behind bugs me a little. A lectern would no doubt have been nice, yet we don’t mind holding home a points for fourth place. Sunday was a good day and Saturday a small reduction so.”
