Le Mans record winner Tom Kristensen was the fastest Audi driver in the DTM season opener at Hockenheim on Friday.

Merely six thousandths of a second slower was Pierre Kaffer, who at the wheel of the Castrol Audi A4 DTM fielded by Audi Sport Team Phoenix suggested that the cars from last year will be serious contenders in the 2006 DTM season as well.
