Five Mercedes-AMG cars in top 10 for Red Bull Ring, conflict with Audi

Mercedes-AMG driver Gary Paffett (EURONICS Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM) started the second half of the DTM season with a P2. This was the 2005 champion’s 35th podium finish of his DTM career. Five Mercedes-AMG drivers came home in the Top Ten in the second race of the weekend.

The Austrian Lucas Auer (BWT Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM) booked seventh place in his home race at Spielberg. DTM rookie Maximilian Götz (Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM) finished directly behind him in eighth position to secure his first DTM points. Chistian Vietoris (Original-Teile Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM) and Paul Di Resta (Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM) placed ninth and tenth respectively.

Robert Wickens (SILBERPFEIL Energy Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM) and Pascal Wehrlein (gooix Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM) were heading for a points-scoring finish when they were deliberately pushed into the gravel bed by Audi driver Timo Scheider on the last lap following a radio communication from his team and were subsequently forced to retire.

That resulted in Wehrlein losing vital points in the championship fight with Audi driver Mattias Ekström, who won the race and is now 17 points up on Wehrlein who is third overall; Wehrlein had a lead of eight points in the drivers’ standings before the second race at Spielberg.

A total of 52,000 spectators came through the gates during the weekend to watch the two races. The second race was staged in difficult weather conditions and had to be started behind the safety car due to heavy rain. Daniel Juncadella (PETRONAS Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM) had to park up his car just a few minutes before the end of the race.
