Audi starts DTM season opener from front row of the grid
- Martin Tomczyk misses pole position by just 76 thousandths
- Five Audi A4 DTM cars on the first five rows
- Mike Rockenfeller with absolutely fastest lap in qualifying
The qualifying session for the first DTM race of the year (Sunday, starting at 1:45 p.m. – local time – live on “Das Erste”) fulfilled the expectations which experts had of the new season: a razor-thin margin of 76 thousandths of a second separated the fastest Audi from the best Mercedes-Benz. The starting grid with five A4 DTM and five C-Class cars on the first five rows is well mixed. And the vehicles of all model years have chances of clinching victory.
