Posted on 06. Jun, 2016 by in Audi Canada

Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport)

“It goes yet observant that we kept an eye on events during a Motorsport Festival during a Lausitzring from Le Mans. It was good to see a packaged grandstands and that a corner coming of a DTM and ADAC GT Masters was good perceived by a spectators. We are of march quite gratified that Audi done such a clever display in front of a many fans. Of some-more significance is a fact that a occurrence in a pits had no critical consequences. Also from Le Mans best wishes and a rapid liberation to a harmed mechanic.”

Dieter Gass (Head of DTM during Audi Sport)

“It was a really good weekend for Audi. The one-two finish on Saturday was of march a highlight. On Sunday we struggled a tiny in qualifying. After a best Audi was effectively out of a using after a burst start during a start of a race, we still available a good group outcome with second, fourth and eighth positions. Due to a fact that Lucas Auer won, a motorist that is not so high in a standings, it was roughly like a feat for us. The collision with a automechanic resigned a mood slightly. Something like this should not happen. But we can’t impugn Edoardo (Mortara). We wish that a harmed co-worker creates a full recovery.”

Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM #53) 2nd position / 4th position

“The weekend went unusually good for me. Second yesterday, fourth currently and 30 points on this weekend – I’m really gratified with this. This is accurately what we indispensable to pierce behind into distinguished stretch in a drivers’ classification. It was a large burst forwards to fourth place. Maybe second could have been probable on Sunday, yet we done a integrate of tiny mistakes. This can occur discerning when we expostulate on a limit. We still have twelve races brazen of us and aim to measure points consistently. We’ll try to do this during a subsequent competition around a Norisring, even yet it won’t be easy there as is always a case.”

Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM #5) 6th position / 2nd position

“My automobile felt good a whole weekend – that is since a subordinate positions were all a some-more disappointing. In a shorter competition on Saturday, we couldn’t do improved than sixth. In contrast, a competition on Sunday was fantastic. we done a reasonable start and to start gathering during a same gait as all a others. When a array stops started we knew: Now it’s happy hour! we was fast, and after my array stop rejoined a line usually behind Jamie (Green) and Gary (Paffett). we was faster and overtook both of them. Then we wanted down Robert (Wickens) and overtook him as well. After a unsatisfactory subordinate it was a illusory competition for me. It was usually after a competition that we listened that one of a mechanics had been harmed during a array stop. These things also harm me. we wish that Werner recovers discerning and will be with us again soon!”

Miguel Molina (Teufel Audi RS 5 DTM #17) 1st position / 19th position

“We had a ideal Saturday with my second DTM victory. After a deteriorate didn’t start as planned, we are now rival and quarrel for a tip 10 position in a championship. Unfortunately, Sunday didn’t go as planned: Augusto (Farfus) pushed me into a wall, we stood on a brakes and usually as we wanted to snake around him he also braked, we couldn’t do anything. we consider a censure can be apportioned 50:50. we suspicion it was nonessential to retard me like this as we had DRS and could have overtaken him easily.”

Nico Müller (Playboy Audi RS 5 DTM #51) 10th position / 8th position

“So, my sign was unfortunately: giveaway use great, subordinate bad. we was during a front in each giveaway practice, in subordinate not any more. we don’t entirely know since it was like this. Both a races were afterwards okay. On Saturday tenth, on Sunday eighth from 15th on a grid. That was a clever race, we done some good maneuvers. I’m happy to take a points. Now it’s a doubt of removing us into a good starting position in subordinate and afterwards hopefully they’ll be buckets of points.”

Edoardo Mortara (Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM #48) 8th position / 12th position

“A terrible weekend, hopefully a final of a kind this year. Such an collision like currently in a array line usually shouldn’t happen. We all have to doubt ourselves and work tough with a array crews so that such an occurrence doesn’t occur again. I’m vexed and can usually wish that a automechanic creates a rapid recovery.”

Timo Scheider (AUTO BILD MOTORSPORT Audi RS 5 DTM #10) 17th position / 16th position

“That was a flattering bad weekend for me. We simply lacked a gait in many places. A few unanswered questions still sojourn as to since this is so. We altered a automobile overnight. It didn’t assistance in qualifying, yet during slightest in a race. This was a usually certain indicate this weekend.”

Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM #99) 19th position / 17th position

“In gripping with a deteriorate so distant a really sobering weekend. Especially on Saturday. Qualifying went improved on Sunday when we was fourth on a grid and best Audi. And afterwards we burst a start – for a initial time in 10 years DTM. Right now when we indispensable a good outcome to get out of a hole. Obviously a competition was as good as over afterward. A genuine contrition since most some-more was possible. we wish that all falls behind into place again soon.”

Adrien Tambay (Speedweek.com Audi RS 5 DTM #27) 20th position / 20th position

“I can’t contend a lot. we mislaid a flicks twice in a competition by light contact. we wasn’t discerning adequate in both races, and there was zero we could quarrel for as a result. In subordinate on Saturday all went still well. I’ll discerning forget this competition and now demeanour brazen to a Norisring.”
