DTM: One-two-three for Audi at Brands Hatch

Drivers from all three Audi teams took a step on the podium at today’s Brands Hatch DTM race. Germany’s Martin Tomczyk came out on top, during a rain-soaked afternoon, claiming his third race victory of the season in the Team Phoenix A4 car, and moving to the top of the points standings in the process.

Initially, polesitter Mike Rockenfeller took the lead, closely followed by Mattias Ekström, who overtook the Mercedes of Britain’s Gary Paffett at “Paddock Hill Bend”. By the second lap, Tomczyk and Mortara also passed Paffett as well, meaning four Audi A4 DTM cars were occupying the first four places.

Ex-formula One driver, Ralf Schumacher, put an end to that potential dream result by driving his Mercedes into Rockenfeller’s car, resulting in a spin – and sixth place. “I don’t understand that he didn’t receive a penalty for that,” said the disgruntled Audi driver.
