Four Audi RS5 DTM cars score points at Red Bull Ring

No less than four Audi RS5 DTM cars managed to obtain points last weekend at the Red Bull Ring. Throughout the entire weekend, 47,500 spectators enjoyed the DTM event at the Red Bull Ring which was packed with numerous duels as well as a few incidents. The first half of the season for Timo Scheider could have been a lot better but he has a lot to be happy about after this weekend as the two-time DTM champion finished the race in fifth place, being only 6.666 seconds slower than the winner. Scheider started the race on the softer option tires and in just a few laps he progressed from 14th place to in front of the pack.

The Austrian crowd gathered at the event also saw Adrien Tambay starting the race on option tires from the 20th spot but advanced to sixth while Mattias Ekström began with harder standard tires from 15 but in the end crossed the finish line on seventh place, securing his second position overall in the DTM standings.

The only Audi RS5 DTM driver to make it in the top ten during qualifying, Jamie Green, encountered a communications problems with the pit crew while leading the race and switched from option to standard tires a lap too late, causing a drive-through penalty which ultimately led to a finish on seventh place.

Miguel Molina took eleventh place while Mike Rockenfeller finished 13, followed by Edoardo Mortara on 16 and Nico Muller on 19.
