During his overtaking maneuvers in the early stage, Green had the Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM of Mattias Ekström in tow. Ekström, after starting from position 18, finished in eleventh place. The Swede remained without points twice at Oschersleben and is now trailing Pascal Wehrlein by 14 points in second place of the drivers’ standings. But he will have a lighter car than his fiercest rival in the battle for the title for the first time again at the Nürburgring in two weeks from now.
Timo Scheider (AUTO TEST Audi RS 5 DTM), Adrien Tambay (Playboy Audi RS 5 DTM) and Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM) finished Sunday’s race at Oschersleben in positions twelve, 14 and 19. Edoardo Mortara parked his Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM early after 21 laps, following damage to his car in the starting phase. For Miguel Molina (Teufel Audi RS 5 DTM) and Nico Müller (Audi Financial Services Audi RS 5 DTM) the race ended early in the commotion in turn one when Mercedes driver Christian Vietoris hit Molina’s rear wheel and Müller was only able to evade them by an excursion into the gravel trap.
