  • Two good opportunities for passing on the sprint circuit
  • Hoping for stable weather conditions
  • Tricky corner right after the start

The DTM event at the Nürburgring promises to turn into a veritable popular festival: 100,000 fans are expected in the “Eifel” this weekend as the season’s seventh round will definitely mark the beginning of the hot phase in the fight for the title. Championship defender Mattias Ekström is merely three points behind his strongest rival, Gary Paffett. The Nürburgring is a good venue for Audi: three of the last five races ended victoriously for the “four rings”. Rinaldo Capello also has very good memories of the Nürburgring. The 41-year-old Audi works driver comments on the 3.629-kilometre circuit.
