With that, a Italian from Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline not usually done thousands of Audi fans backing a city travel circuit around Nuremberg’s Dutzendteich lake cheer. At a circle of his Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM, he took a lead of a altogether standings again as good and is a initial motorist to have won dual DTM races this year. “Winning during a Norisring as an Audi motorist is simply fantastic,” Mortara pronounced after a prohibited conflict during temperatures of about 30 degrees centigrade in a shade. “It was a formidable competition given we had vigour from behind a whole time. That creates me all a happier.”

Jamie Green, on holding second place in a Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM of Audi Sport Team Rosberg, even polished an Audi one-two. In a print finish, a Briton crossed a finish line, trailing his code co-worker by only 0.531 seconds and 0.372 seconds forward of Mercedes-Benz motorist Paul Di Resta. “Obviously, I’d have favourite to still conflict Edo (Mortara), though we felt that was too unsure given a rearward opening wasn’t really large,” pronounced Green. “I didn’t wish to jeopardise Audi’s victory.”

The Audi patrol had laid a substructure for this delight in qualifying. With Mattias Ekström, Jamie Green and Edoardo Mortara in grid positions two, 3 and six, 3 Audi RS 5 DTM cars started Saturday’s competition from a initial 3 rows.

In a initial third of a race, it was primarily Mattias Ekström who gave Audi fans arise to dream of victory. In his Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM, a Swede fought duels with a dual heading Mercedes-Benz cars. In an try to strike Robert Wickens from second place, on braking into spin one on path 20, a collision occurred between Ekström and Wickens that caused Ekström to slip into a leader, Christian Vietoris. “I feel impossibly contemptible for Christian,” pronounced Ekström. “He was totally unblemished in removing caught in a scuffle between me and Wickens.”

“That Mattias (Ekström) wouldn’t do anything like that on purpose should be transparent to anyone,” pronounced Dieter Gass, Head of DTM during Audi Sport. “We’d have elite to applaud a initial Norisring feat given 2002 in a somewhat opposite way. But ‘that’s racing.’ The collision between Wickens and Ekström was a racing collision of a kind that frequently happens during a Norisring. Eki has mostly anxious us with his overtaking maneuvers. This time, it went wrong, that wasn’t his error alone. We wouldn’t even be deliberating it during all if it hadn’t influenced a third driver, Christian Vietoris, who was not concerned in a maneuver.”
