After Saturday’s sleet battle, a spectators in dry conditions on Sunday saw a initial loyal hearing of strength between a Class 1 competition cars of Aston Martin, Audi and BMW. The transparent leader after 37 stirring laps: a Audi RS 5 DTM with a new, some-more than 610-hp two-liter four-cylinder turbo engine.

Bram Schot, CEO of AUDI AG, witnessed a one-two-three success in a array line and was apparently tender about a DTM’s altogether coming as well. “I unequivocally enjoyed this. The atmosphere, a unrestrained for a series, a and in opening – this tastes moreish.”

Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass was looking for a right difference after a finish: “Honestly, I’m rather speechless. After a qualifying, we weren’t means to design such a result. With René, we chose an assertive strategy. The times he set pushing by a margin are incredible. But Nico and Robin gathering a clever competition as well. It’s a illusory outcome for Audi and honeyed acknowledgment for a tough work over a final few months. And for a DTM it was a successful start to a turbo era.”

René Rast once again showed an well-developed performance. Following a problem in qualifying, a German had to settle for 16th on a grid.

The Audi motorist ideally used a advantage of a uninformed tires and within only 7 laps fought behind from 15th to 1st place. During a imperative array stop on path 22, he only quickly mislaid his lead and subsequently gathering feat home in autocratic style.

“Overtaking scarcely a whole margin on a few laps is generally good fun for a competition driver,” pronounced Rast. “Many interjection to Audi Sport, to my Rosberg group and to a mechanics who gave their all. We had a shining plan today. we only had to expostulate a automobile home. What a day!”

Nico Müller and Robin Frijns, who both started a competition from a second quarrel and with opposite strategies finished roughly concurrently in positions dual and three, finished Audi’s lectern lockout. Müller pulled off a marvellous start from fourth to second while Frijns forsaken to seventh. The Dutchman done adult several positions in a final stage.

“After yesterday’s formidable day, this was accurately a right response,” pronounced Müller. “I had a lot of fun out there and am certain it was a good competition for a fans, too.” His teammate, Robin Frijns, talked about a “crazy race”: “I had a bad start and had to quarrel back. The automobile was unequivocally good. My interjection go to Audi and to a ABT guys.”
