A strong, solid performance by Audi in the last free practice session of the 2015 DTM season: with temperatures having remained on the cool side, seven of the eight Audi drivers made it into the top ten at the Hockenheimring on Saturday morning. The eighth Audi RS 5 DTM trailed them in position 13.
The best Audi driver was Timo Scheider in the AUTO TEST Audi RS 5 DTM in position two. “Saturday has started positively – we’re pleased at the moment,” said the 2008 and 2009 DTM Champion. “But it’s incredibly close again. The top ten are within a tenth of a second. That means you also need a bit of fortune to catch a perfect lap. I’m hoping for us to have that later in qualifying.”
Qualifying for the first of the two final DTM races will start at 11.10 CEST.
