Posted on 12. Sep, 2016 by in Audi Canada

Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport)

“The 50th feat of Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline and a good competition on Sunday finished a weekend that had been rather unsatisfactory adult to that indicate on a certain note. In a race, a cars were unequivocally fast, yet in qualifying, we simply didn’t conduct to emanate a good starting base. That’s now a categorical charge for a subsequent races. We’re going to do all within a means to continue a conflict for a championship full-force.”

Dieter Gass (Head of DTM during Audi Sport)

“The extensive competition Sunday compensates for a Saturday that was rather unsatisfactory for us. We’re still struggling rather regulating a full intensity of a tire on a essential path in qualifying. That’s a disadvantage. But in a race, that’s an advantage for us given we can expostulate longer and some-more consistently with a Audi RS 5 DTM than a competitors. That pays off quite in a longer competition on Sunday. Very frustrating was a drive-through chastisement for Jamie Green given he could have scored good points as well.”

Edoardo Mortara (Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM #48) position 4 / position 1

“We had a extensive competition automobile on Saturday. It was a contrition that (Tom) Blomqvist blocked me a small and we wasn’t means to pass him. Otherwise a improved outcome would already have been probable on Saturday. we gave it a try, we brushed any other and we somewhat shop-worn my automobile in a process. That’s given position 4 was still okay. The competition on Sunday afterwards was unequivocally good. we had a good start from position 6 and immediately managed to pass dual drivers. In a initial partial of a race, we followed a BMW cars and Lucas (Auer). we saved my DRS and took it easy on my tires and my brakes. When a others pitted before me, we knew that we’d be means to win with a opposite strategy. The group did a illusory job. They called me in to array during a right time. The stop was good and a automobile top-class. We benefited from being means to expostulate on a transparent track. After a array stop, we usually had to pass (Lucas) Auer and he acted in a unequivocally satisfactory manner. Everything worked out well. I’m happy to have mounted a tip of a lectern again, to have scored 37 points and being behind in a pretension race.”

Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM #53) position 3 / position 16

“Saturday was unequivocally good. It’s always good to finish on podium. On Sunday, we did a good pursuit in qualifying, yet we were seventh on a grid. Initially, things were going good in a race. Then we was blocked by Augusto Farfus and we mislaid a lot of time. Following my array stop, we came alongside Gary Paffett in spin 1. We overwhelmed and he spun. My automobile was shop-worn in a routine and we perceived a drive-through penalty. That was frustrating given it wasn’t my error one hundred percent. With a repairs to a automobile and a drive-through penalty, my chances for points were gone. There wasn’t a lot we did wrong today, yet we didn’t measure any points.”

Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM #5) position 23 / position 4

“Friday and Saturday didn’t start in a unequivocally sparkling way. we was struggling to get a good feel for a car. Fortunately, there’s also a Sunday and given Sunday I’ve been feeling some-more gentle again in a car. In terms of a set-up we came adult with what we need. Sunday’s competition was a lot of fun. we was comparatively quick and had some good battles. It would be good if we could start that approach on Friday for a change. If we conduct that, a outcome will be opposite than a fourth place too.”

Nico Müller (Playboy Audi RS 5 DTM #51) position 11 / position 5

“Obviously, I’m happy about a 10 points on Sunday. We done adult 9 places in a competition on both days. That was great. But my subordinate opening irks me a little. Following a best time in giveaway use on Sunday, expectations were high. Then, carrying to start from position 14 was frustrating. But we consider we’ve begun to know what’s been causing this. The large aim is to start from a initial 3 rows in a final 4 races during Budapest and Hockenheim and to measure copiousness of points.”

Timo Scheider (AUTO BILD MOTORSPORT Audi RS 5 DTM #10) position 21 / position 11

“Unfortunately, we didn’t measure any points during a Nürburgring. But in terms of performance, theoretically, points would have been probable twice. We need to rate this as a certain even yet during Audi we’ve generally tended to have a tough time in qualifying. we can pull a certain end that during slightest within a Audi patrol we’ve managed to locate up. We’ve done a growth step. I’m holding a certain feeling we had from Friday to Sunday with me. It’s transparent that scoring points is formidable when we start so distant from a rear. On Saturday, we could have scored points. In a second army of Sunday’s race, not a lot was probable with a new tire. Plus, a array stop wasn’t perfect.”

Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM #99) position 14 / position 22

“Expectations were unequivocally high before a weekend. The group and my mechanics did all to give me a best probable automobile for a home round. Following this so distant bad season, we attempted all to bind a good outcome here. I’d like to appreciate my group for that. However, during a moment, I’m not means to pierce a automobile quick adequate – quite in qualifying. And if we have to start from a distant back of a grid there’s simply not a lot we can do in a races. Obviously, I’d have wished for a lot some-more for my team, my fans and myself here. Now we’ve still got 4 some-more races and I’m going to give all we can to support Audi in a pretension race.”

Miguel Molina (Teufel Audi RS 5 DTM #17) position 15 / position 20

“I approaching a small some-more of this weekend, generally after my feat final year. The indicate on Sunday would have been a certain but, unfortunately, there was a retroactive time chastisement and position 20 instead of position ten. Qualifying on Sunday was positive. we was only as quick as Audi’s tip drivers. Now I’m looking brazen to Budapest. we like a lane and have been on lectern there before. we wish we’ll conduct a improved outcome there again.”

Adrien Tambay (Speedweek.com Audi RS 5 DTM #27) retirement / position 15

“It was a formidable weekend given we were struggling with a hold turn of my automobile and need to find a resolution for that before Budapest. But a second competition gives me a certain feeling. we started from a final position and was means to assistance a small with honour to Audi scoring so many points.”
