The Canadian controlled virtually the entire race as he started from the best position, losing the lead only during stops and finally winning easily ahead of Wittmann and Glock. Somewhere in the middle of the race, it pointed to the sensational victory of former Formula One racer Tim Glock (this was only his third race in the DTM series), but in the end he won "only" third place. Namely, Glock chose softer tires during the stops and broke through from the eleventh place just behind the end of the second Wittmann, because the second left tire was tightened for too long at the second stop. Audi’s honor was saved by fourth place Rockenfeller, followed by Mattias Ekstrom. Rockenfeller fought most of the race with Dirk Wener, who ended up in eighth place behind Vietrois and sixth in Farfus. During the first

Despite the fact that Hankook from South Korea already supplies tires to many series such as the DTM and the European Formula 3 series, it does not intend to enter Formula One for the time being. Of course, DTM series engineer Michael Eckert points out that it is too late to enter next season, but Hankook is also very open about the future of racing and does not want to say too early about Formula One: “It is too late and completely impossible for 2014 . Entering in four or five years would also be difficult, as Hankook is also very limited in testing. " Even if development began this year, it would take at least three years to ensure adequate security

Audi racer Mike Rockenfeller will start the race at Brands Hatch from the best starting position after the commissioners deleted the time of Martin Tomczyk, otherwise the fastest in qualifying. His BMW was too light at the qualifying weigh-in. The German initially looked forward to the first best starting position since 2011, and his RMG team celebrated the first ever. But the commissioners said the car was not in line with regulations, so Tomczyk moved to the start of the starting line and Mike Rockenfeller advanced to the best position. Augusto Farfus in the RBM BMW will stand next to him at the start. Brands Hatch, Starting line: Racer Team / Racing car 1. Mike Rockenfeller Phoenix Audi 2. Augusto Farfus RBM BMW 3.

    Timo Scheider will start the first race of this year's season of the German DTM Touring Car Championship with the best starting position. The two-time champion was the second fastest in the third part of the qualifications in Hockenheim, so in the fourth part he drove his fast lap as the third. With the Audi RS5 of the Abt Sportsline team, he set a time of 1: 35.918, with which he managed to oust August Farfus from the top of the time series, and only Christian Vietoris had to drive the fast lap. He lost some time in the first part of the round, so he placed third. Scheider thus secured the eleventh best starting position in his career, beating Farfus in the RBM BMW by just 0.116 seconds. Robert Wickens achieved the best result of his career. He was fourth, despite the fact that the commissioners of his time no

The organizers of the DTM championship have decided to introduce softer tires and DRS, thus promising more attractive races in this German championship. Namely, it is known that DRS greatly increases the chances of overtaking, and the tires will provide an additional factor that will make the difference between racers. As in Formula One, of course, the DRS will be limited, in the DTM, the racer will be allowed to use it when he approaches someone for at least two seconds. Also, use will be limited to once per round, but not to where. The viewers will be able to notice the use on the rear wing, which will drop an additional 15 degrees when the system is active, and then return to its original position. Let’s also mention that the softer tires in lap tests also improved lap times by a second, which promises really faster cars. In addition
