Unfortunately, a competition formula weren’t accurately what we had hoped. However, on Sunday in sold we saw a unequivocally clever opening by some of a cars – generally Mattias Ekström who gathering from a midfield onto a lectern and in doing so demonstrated a car’s potential. we sojourn certain and demeanour forwards. we consider we have a unequivocally good automobile and a clever team.”

Dieter Gass (Head of DTM during Audi Sport)

“Of march we would like to have won during Spielberg. But we have to acknowledge that BMW was unequivocally clever here. For this reason, we trust that radically we can be confident with 3 of a probable 6 lectern positions. Mattias (Ekström) and Jamie (Green) gathering unequivocally clever races on Sunday. we consider feat for Mattias would also have been formidable even if he had started from a grid position that he would have deserved. A contrition about Edo (Mortara) retiring, who could presumably have taken a championship lead on Sunday after his glorious competition on Saturday. we contend ‘possibly’ since he was hampered by a problem with a suspension, and it would substantially also have been formidable for him to finish in a points yet hit with da Costa. we don’t consider anything during all has been motionless in a championship race. Because a dual leaders unsuccessful to measure points on Sunday all has sealed up. The championship is usually usually commencement for several drivers.”

Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM #5) 16th position / 2nd position

“Let’s start with a bad things: to be around tenth position twice in subordinate is not good adequate to win races in a DTM. On Saturday we deserved a grid position since we was simply a essential tenth too slow. But on Sunday we was good adequate to be between third and fifth – and afterwards somebody gets in my way. I’ve usually about had adequate removing cramp using so distant to a toilet from a grid! In yesterday’s competition there’s a impulse immediately during spin one and I’m final again. On Sunday we attempted to tarry a initial laps. Then to expostulate from eleventh on a grid all a approach to second creates me unapproachable and happy.”

Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM #53) 14th position / 3nd position

“The weekend was a brew of highs and lows. On Saturday we were of march dissatisfied. After a bad outcome in subordinate we had no possibility in a competition to pierce adult to a front. On Sunday we got on most improved with a automobile and could set a good time in qualifying. As a result, a second competition was utterly a lot easier compared to a first. After 3 unsatisfactory races yet points it was a unequivocally good feeling to mountain a lectern again. Perhaps a small some-more would have been probable yet a reserve automobile proviso and delayed zones. Nevertheless, I’m gay about a points and will conflict again during a Lausitzring.”

Edoardo Mortara (Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM #48) 3rd position / retired

“The weekend has a rather sour aftertaste. But I’ll try to keep a good memories from Saturday and a good gait that we showed. we consider we did a good pursuit before a collision and a technical problem in a competition on Sunday. Unfortunately a automobile was removing formidable to drive. It wasn’t easy to keep a others behind. there was a hit with António Félix da Costa and we both finished adult in a gravel. It’s not critical anymore who was during fault, yet in a finish we both scored no points. It would positively have been probable to forestall this. we have a feeling we did all right, yet we couldn’t measure a points that we deserved. we wish things go improved during a subsequent competition and that we can uncover a good opening of a Audi RS 5 DTM.”

Adrien Tambay (Speedweek.com Audi RS 5 DTM #27) 8th position / 11th position

“All in all it was mostly a certain weekend for me. The highlights were starting third on Saturday and a initial points in a race. The second competition didn’t go utterly as approaching and we consider we would have deserved to measure a point. But it wasn’t to be. Eleventh place and a automobile in one square uncover that we are going in a right direction. Our subordinate gait also creates me optimistic. I’ve scored some-more points already than we did all final year and since of this I’m already looking brazen to a subsequent race.”

Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM #99) 12th position / 8th position

“After Hockenheim it was another weekend that didn’t go as I’d expected. Both subordinate event were not good. Twelfth yesterday was a maximum. In Sunday’s competition a initial path wasn’t good, a plan was also not suitable, since we was always in traffic. When I’d finally upheld Timo and Bruno we could see that my gait was unequivocally good. A bit of a contrition that usually 4 points was a reward. Our competition gait in Spielberg was positive. The rest we have to get together in qualifying. This is a large weakness.”

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

“Saturday and Sunday were unequivocally good with second and third in giveaway practice, yet unfortunately not in a dual subordinate sessions. On Saturday a path time usually wasn’t there, even yet a automobile and a path were good. On Sunday we were discerning in a initial dual sectors, yet mislaid too most time in a final zone since of understeer. we had problems with a DRS in both races. On Saturday it didn’t work during all via a whole race, in a second competition it stopped operative after usually 5 laps. It was of march formidable to defend. we had several unequivocally tough battles, yet this is partial of motorsport and it was all on a right side of a line. On a and side in a finish is a point. This is a start, yet apparently distant from satisfying.”

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

“Unfortunately, a competition on Saturday was a usually certain indicate of a weekend. we had fun, was quick and overtook several competitors. In a finish we scored a point, that was critical since in this hard-fought array we have to be happy with each tip 10 position. Unfortunately we didn’t get a set-up right for subordinate on Sunday. As a outcome we started from a midfield and afterwards what happened currently can happen. Robert Wickens was penalized for a collision, yet any probable points were gone. However, I’ll keep my conduct up: we’ll now combine on a Lausitzring.”

Miguel Molina (Teufel Audi RS 5 DTM #17) 19th position / 14th position

“Unfortunately we didn’t get a formula we hoped to get. At a impulse we are anticipating subordinate difficult. Because of this we were not in a position to quarrel for a tip positions. In a races we felt most some-more gentle since a automobile was most improved than in qualifying. Thanks in partial to a good strategy, we was means to make adult several places, even yet overtaking isn’t easy here. This is a certain aspect that we take from this weekend. We have to be improved in qualifying, afterwards a improved competition formula will follow.”
