Posted on 27. Jul, 2015 by in Audi Canada

The ninth competition of a deteriorate on Saturday will symbol a finish of a initial half of a 2015 DTM in that Audi has been a strongest code so far. Four victories have been scored by a Audi RS 5 DTM, as good as 4 stick positions and 4 fastest competition laps. Plus, a lead of a manufacturers’ championship with a 48-point advantage and positions one, dual and 4 in a drivers’ championship with Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM/81 points), Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM/76 points) and Edoardo Mortara (Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM/58 points).

“At Hockenheim and during a Lausitzring, with 4 victories in succession, we done a ideal start to a season,” says Dieter Gass, Head of DTM during Audi Sport. “We got a comeuppance for it in a form of opening weight that, literally speaking, was a complicated weight that done life tough for us during a Norisring and during Zandvoort. Our aim for Spielberg is to lapse to a podium.”

Due to a intensely rival DTM domain a ‘success-induced’ opening weight has a vital change on a formula – generally in qualifying. Last year, a tip 6 on a grid during Spielberg were distant by usually 0.091 seconds. “This time, a weight differences will be a small smaller than many recently during Zandvoort, though a BMW competition cars, on average, are still about 10 kilograms lighter than a cars,” says Dieter Gass. “According to a projections, this will volume to scarcely dual tenths of a second per lap,” Dieter Gass adds.

The heaviest automobile in a domain is a one of Mattias Ekström who, with fourth place during a Norisring and seventh place during Zandvoort, managed to proceed Jamie Green with a five-point margin. “For a partner Red Bull it would apparently be good if we could take a lead during a Red Bull Ring of all places,” says a Swede who still has some unprepared business during Spielberg. It is a usually stream DTM lane that has not nonetheless seen him mountain a podium. “So it’s high time, generally since a Red Bull Ring is a home turn for me. we live in Austria now and, aside from a races, have visited many other events during a Red Bull Ring.”

Jamie Green is roving to Spielberg with unprepared business as well. Last year, he was battling in a organisation of a front runners though afterwards perceived a drive-through chastisement for pitting one path too late. “That was apparently frustrating,” Green recalls. “But it showed me that we can be quick during a Red Bull Ring. However, I’ve stopped creation predictions – that’s usually not probable in a DTM.”

Edoardo Mortara is a usually one of a stream 8 Audi drivers to have finished on lectern during Spielberg – on a tip step. In 2012, a Italian distinguished his initial DTM feat during a Red Bull Ring. Trailing a personality of a standings with a 23-point deficit, he continues to design carrying chances of winning a title. “One feat and I’m behind in contention,” says Mortara.
