A race weekend could hardly be more thrilling than this: for the first time in the “new” DTM, the fight for the champion’s title between two brands is not decided until the finale at Hockenheim. Before this duel is staged between Audi driver Mattias Ekström and Gary Paffett on Sunday, Christian Abt has had a reason to celebrate since the last race at Istanbul: the driver from Kempten (Bavaria) will finish the season as the best driver of a 2004-spec car. The “champion in a car from last year” comments on the 4.574-kilometre Hockenheimring.
