Audi were less than lousy at Lausitz this weekend with Miguel Molina and Jamie Green finishing 1, 2 at this weekend’s first DTM race. Not only that, but Audi was also the best brand in DTM this weekend, with five cars in the points over the two races.
Although they didn’t get the win at this weekend’s second race on Sunday, Audis did finish in 2nd and 4th, as well as in 8th. Mattias Ekstrom was Audi’s best performer for that race, finishing second, only three seconds behind Mercedes’ Lucas Auer, when all was said and done.
Despite not winning, England’s Jamie Green was perhaps the best Audi performer, overall, finishing 2nd on Saturday and 4th on Sunday.
“This weekend went exceptionally well for me,” says Green. “This is exactly what I needed to move back into striking distance in the drivers’ classification.”
For Molina, too, this weekend is reason to celebrate. His victory on Saturday is only his second ever in DTM and comes only seven races after his first ever.
“We had a perfect Saturday with my second DTM victory,” says Molina. “After this season didn’t start as planned, we are now competitive and fight for a top 10 position in the championship.”
Following the weekend’s racing, Jamie Green jumps into fourth place in the drivers’ standings, behind fellow Audi driver, Ekstrom. The two are separated by only one point and trail the number one Robert Wickens by only 12 and 13 points, respectively.
