Audi driver Rockenfeller causes a stir

DTM 2007
Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich, Mike Rockenfeller, Arno Zensen
  • Youngest Audi factory driver on front row of the grid
  • Pole position missed by merely 0.074 seconds
  • Good starting position for DTM leader Ekström as well

Mike Rockenfeller – at age 23 the youngest Audi factory driver – was the great sensation in the qualifying practice for the DTM race at Oschersleben. In the fight for the pole position, “Rocky” at the wheel of his S line Audi A4 DTM only had to admit defeat to the two-time Formula 1 World Champion Mika Häkkinen by 74 thousandths of a second. This means that for the first time the rookie from Neuwied will be starting from the front row of the grid in his second DTM race – a remarkable feat that has been accomplished only by very few DTM newcomers so far.
