Disappointing DTM opener for Audi
- Timo Scheider in sixth place best Audi driver at Hockenheim
- Two Audi RS 5 DTM cars in the points
- 87,000 spectators experience turbulent start into the season
With an Audi RS 5 DTM at the front of the field, the new DTM season started at Hockenheim with 87,000 spectators (throughout the weekend) in attendance. After 42 spectacular laps with plenty of on-track action and gripping overtaking maneuvers the opening round ended in a disappointment for Audi. With Timo Scheider and Mike Rockenfeller in positions six and eight, only two Audi drivers scored points.
