Still, we had a unequivocally good automobile and a good pace. we was means to keep adult with a dual BMWs in front of me for a prolonged time – until a collision with Wittmann. After that, my competition was ruined. That was unequivocally upsetting!”

Timo Scheider (AUTO TEST Audi RS 5 DTM), 16th place

Although following we was means to make adult some belligerent again one of my tires unexpected started to remove atmosphere and we had to array with a puncture. Unfortunately, we afterwards mislaid a circle bulb during a final array stop. None of this was in my hands and I’m anticipating that this fibre of set-back will finish one day.”

We’re going to work on this in sequence to serve improve.”

Ernst Moser (Team Director Audi Sport Team Phoenix): “It’s implausible that we managed to allege from 13th to fourth place.

Afterward, he was unequivocally good and still finished in 14th place.”

We’ve got to live with a preference by a competition directors. But a movement with Marco Wittmann was a bit much, he gathering into ‘Edo’s’ automobile 3 times. Afterward, a automobile was curved and we had a puncture. we can’t know that this occurrence wasn’t investigated. Afterward, a competition was busted for ‘Edo.’ If we demeanour during where Wittmann finished in a finish utterly a bit would have been probable for him. Filipe (Albuquerque) was stranded in traffic. We should have switched from a customary behind to a choice tires as well.”
