Quotes after a competition during Oschersleben

Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport): “Being means to honour all your drivers after a competition is not a common occurrence in a DTM. Today it’s been a case. Ever given we’ve been battling opposite BMW and Mercedes-Benz in a DTM no manufacturer has managed to measure points with 8 cars. And it’s been a very, unequivocally prolonged time that a code has had 8 cars in a tip 10 in a DTM race. We managed to do this currently during Oschersleben – and everybody during Audi Sport and in a 3 teams can be unapproachable of this.”

Dieter Gass (Head of DTM): “A illusory outcome for us to finish in a points with all 8 Audi cars. This has never happened before given we’ve been racing in a DTM with 3 manufacturers – and as a manufacturer we can usually dream of this. Mike (Rockenfeller) delivered a ideal opening nonetheless again. Furthermore, we showed a form of group congruity we’ve always been wishing for.”

“The second place feels good. For a brief moment, we was meditative that we competence be means to win. But it shortly became apparent that Augusto (Farfus) was a bit stronger than we. That’s since we took it easy on a automobile and brought second place home. These were critical points for a Championship again. A lectern in a DTM can’t be taken for granted. That’s since I’m enjoying a fact that I’ve perceived a prize here during Oschersleben.”

“Finally, a good competition again! we had a good automobile and dual good array stops. Unfortunately, we mislaid a lot of time behind Dirk Werner, who was arguably ostensible to cover Bruno Spengler. We substantially missed out on a position that way. But after a set-back of a past we can live unequivocally good with this result– we fought tough for it. A dream outcome for Audi: Eight Audi cars in a tip ten, we can be unequivocally happy today.”

Tires: Option/Standard/Standard

“I had another good start and good initial laps and was means to pass Miguel (Molina) and Dirk Werner. we was happy with that. Afterward, we was struggling a bit with a car.

The competition stroke and a gait were unequivocally good. we was quick on a choice tires and scored a indicate today. Considering that we started from position 17 and was a final automobile in spin one, things didn’t go too badly. I’m anticipating for an ceiling trend now. The speed is there and we now need a weekend but vital problems.”

Hans-Jürgen Abt (Team Director Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline): “It’s been a good day for Audi. All cars in a points: that shows ideal teamwork. The competition offering a lot of torment and illusory overtaking maneuvers: A good competition Sunday.”

“A glorious outcome for Audi! When we measure with all 8 cars that started we can usually honour everybody who’s had a partial in this, quite deliberation a formidable time we had here final year. I’m unequivocally gratified with positions dual and 8 by ‘Rocky’ (Mike Rockenfeller) and Miguel Molina as well. Continuing where we left off after a four-week mangle sends a clever vigilance to a rivals. ‘Rocky’ has now got a 33-point advantage in a standings and Miguel, too, has combined points to his tally, for himself and a team. In a group standings we’re in second place now, and we’re going to continue to conflict there as well.”  
Arno Zensen (Team Director Audi Sport Team Rosberg):
“A good competition for Audi with 8 cars in a tip ten. I’m happy for my whole patrol that did a glorious job. The plan was right as well. Filipe (Albuquerque) only hardly missed a lectern finish and if Edo (Mortara) wouldn’t have had to start so distant from a back some-more than tenth place would have been probable for him too since he was as quick as a successive leader some of a time. ‘Thank you’ to everybody.”
