With Mike Rockenfeller (Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline), René Rast (Audi Sport Team Rosberg) and Benoît Tréluyer (WRT Team Audi Sport) in positions seven, 8 and ten, all 4 Audi RS 5 DTM cars finished in a tip 10 on Sunday. Rast was battling for a lectern finish for a prolonged time before a reigning DTM Champion suffered a puncture – unfortunately, during a finish of a prolonged start-finish straight, that caused him to remove even some-more time than Duval.
“This was an intensely sparkling competition with copiousness of incidents,” pronounced Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass. “In annoy of a tire problems we still achieved a really good result. Loïc Duval’s conflict with Marco Wittmann on a final path was simply sensational. For me, he positively deserved his second place. we can’t know a preference to palm him a chastisement second. The competition currently was ideal announcement for Class 1. I’m already looking brazen to a opener of a DTM deteriorate during Zolder during a finish of Apr 2020 – and of march to a subsequent Dream Race. This weekend during Fuji has whetted the ardour for more.”
