Posted on 26. Sep, 2016 by in Audi Canada

Following a 1-2-3-4-5-6 success on Saturday, Audi distinguished a one-two outcome with Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM/Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline) and Adrien Tambay (Speedweek.com Audi RS 5 DTM/Audi Sport Team Rosberg) during a Hungaroring in competition dual on Sunday. However, a fun within a Audi patrol was injured by a fact that a dual Audi drivers with a best points measure went home but points following a starting accident.

In a stirring subordinate session, Edoardo Mortara in a Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM, like a day before, had again cumulative stick position. His teammate Mattias Ekström relegated personality of a standings Marco Wittmann in a BMW to a second quarrel by a thousandth of a second. He was trailed by dual other Audi drivers – Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM) and Miguel Molina (Teufel Audi RS 5 DTM) – a solid, despite dicey starting bottom for Sunday’s race.

While Mattias Ekström managed a ideal start, a 3 drivers with a best points measure altogether collided with any other even before spin one. Marco Wittmann was advantageous and means to finish a competition in fourth place. Jamie Green on a other palm late with a shop-worn left front cessation and now no longer has any pretension chances. Edoardo Mortara held a puncture in a argumentative collision and, in position 21, remained but points as well. The Audi motorist will now enter a culmination with a necessity of 26 points.

“I didn’t have a good start. Subsequently, we was sandwiched between Wittmann and Green. One of a rims pennyless in a routine and we had to take a few some-more hits on path one,” pronounced Mortara. “That’s unequivocally unsatisfactory since we could have won again today.”

“It was a genuine shame,” Dieter Gass, Head of DTM during Audi Sport, agreed. “It’s intensely frustrating not to be means to feel unequivocally happy in annoy of a one-two result. Today, we could unequivocally have achieved more. We had quick cars. That was apparent also with Mattias (Ekström) and Adrien (Tambay). The conditions during a start was intensely unfortunate. You can’t unequivocally censure anyone either. Edo (Mortara) had a small too most circle spin. That’s what set off this hapless sequence of events. That, of all people, it resulted in a dual drivers with a best points measure being taken out of a competition is frustrating.”
