Tom Kristensen claimed another podium finish for Audi in front of a record crowd of 149,000 spectators at the DTM finale at Hockenheim. The Dane driving for Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline finished third in a riveting race characterised by hard fought battles and numerous retirements. Despite the front suspension of Kristensen’s Siemens Audi A4 DTM being damaged after contact with Jamie Green’s Mercedes during the opening stages of the race, he kept new DTM Champion Bernd Schneider at bay for the entire distance.
