With Tom Kristensen (4th), Martin Tomczyk (5th) and Emanuele Pirro (7th), three further Audi drivers finished in the points. Audi was the only manufacturer to score points in the DTM season opener with four cars. Christian Abt and Frank Biela had no such luck when being involved in a collision on the opening lap of the race. While Abt retired, Biela was able to complete the race after changing the front bonnet.
