Audi scores podium again at RBR, no comment on Mercedes-AMG incident

After perfect weather on Saturday, heavy rain on Sunday made for difficult conditions and numerous slips, with Mattias Ekström once more proving his class. The Swede in the Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM secured the top spot on the grid, led the race from the first to the final lap and drove the fastest race lap as well.

Following his victory on Saturday, Edoardo Mortara in the Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM achieved another podium result on Sunday. The Italian started from position six and advanced to third place. In the drivers’ standings, the Italian is now trailing Mattias Ekström in second place.

Drivers from Audi Sport Teams Phoenix and Rosberg – Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM) and Nico Müller (Audi Financial Services Audi RS 5 DTM) – finished in the top five as well. Rockenfeller started from the front row, but first had to yield to Gary Paffett and subsequently to Edoardo Mortara. Müller recovered from grid position eleven to fifth place and, just like Rockenfeller, achieved his best result of the season.



Audi is yet to provide a comment on the incident where Timo Scheider, who finished 6th in the race, tapped two of the Mercedes-AMG cars out during the race and put them out of commission. There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the matter, and while DTM is known for it’s bumping and grinding, this kind of move is highly questionable.
