Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM #48 (Audi Sport Team Abt), Edoardo Mortara
The first best time set in the 2015 DTM season goes to Edoardo Mortara. The Italian from Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline in the Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM was the fastest driver on a wet track in the year’s first free practice on Friday afternoon. Shortly before the end of the 45-minute session, Mortara was bumped to second place by his team-mate Mattias Ekström but had recaptured the fastest time by the time the checkered flag fell. “The first free practice in a new season is always very special,” said Mortara. “You’re hoping to be competitive. The new season couldn’t have started better than this. Even though it’s just a free practice session it gives me additional self-confidence.”
