DTM: Emotional Roller Coaster for Audi Sport at Hockenheim


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times for Audi’s DTM effort at the Hockenheim season opener last weekend, as Audi Sport driver Edoardo Mortara finished first overall in race one, and fell out of the points after contact early in race two.  In fact, Nico Müller was the only Audi Sport driver to finish in the points during both of last weekend’s rounds, crossing the checkered flag third on Saturday, and eighth on Sunday.  Obviously, Audi Sport’s Head of DTM Deiter Gass was disappointed in Sunday’s result after Saturday’s successes, commenting “When your best car is in position eleven on the grid, you’re going to have a difficult time. For a successful outcome of our strategy of saving a fresh tire set per car for the race, our performance in qualifying wasn’t good enough.”

Read the full Press Release below.

  • Victory at Hockenheim on Saturday, disappointment on Sunday

Cheering on Saturday, disappointment on Sunday: in front of 78,500 spectators (throughout the weekend), Audi Sport experienced an emotional roller coaster at the DTM season opener at Hockenheim.
