  • Strong performance of the youngest Audi factory driver
  • Tom Kristensen fifth after suffering tyre problems
  • Audi drivers forfeit chances for victory at the start

116,000 spectators at the Nürburgring witnessed another thrilling DTM weekend on which Martin Tomczyk in the Red Bull A4 DTM of Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline – finishing in third place – achieved a podium result for Audi. Tomczyk – aged 24 and thus the youngest of the Audi factory drivers – pushed fowards in the rain from tenth to fourth place with a lightning start, made up another position on the sixth lap and, in the final phase on the meanwhile dry track, even nearly caught up with the Mercedes of the current DTM leader, Bernd Schneider. Tomczyk thus made it to the podium again for the first time since the 2004 DTM finale at Hockenheim.
