Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM #53 (Audi Sport Team Rosberg), Jamie Green
Jamie Green immediately justified his reputation of being a Norisring specialist in the first free practice session. The Briton in the Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM started the third DTM race weekend as the best Audi driver in fifth place, with only 45 thousands of a second short of the best time. Eleven thousandths behind Green, Adrien Tambay in the Playboy Audi RS 5 DTM followed in sixth place. As always on the merely 2.3-kilometer long Norisring, the field was close together, with only 44 hundredths of a second separating the 24 drivers. “It was a typical Friday,” said Jamie Green, summing up the day. “Things were going pretty well, but this was just the first free practice. It was positive that I drove my fastest lap at the end of a long run.”
On Saturday, at 10.15, another free practice session is scheduled before the qualifying session at 13.25 for the grid positions in the first of the two races at the Norisring (start on Saturday at 16.48).
