DTM Spielberg: Audi quotes

Dieter Gass (Head of Audi Motorsport)
“With dual one-two-three wins it was a glorious weekend for Audi. We weren’t certain where we’d mount with a same weight compared to a dual competitors. We were gratified to see that a RS 5 DTM during a Red Bull Ring with a same prerequisites for all 3 manufacturers was a fastest and, above all, a many unchanging car. That we were ideally sorted already on Saturday was another essential factor. It was apparent that a margin in subordinate on Sunday was clearly closer together and that, as a result, racing was some-more spectacular. In both races, we saw illusory teamwork in a patrol and some of a rivals personification hardball. On Sunday, Mattias (Ekström) unequivocally got zero for free. But gifts are not what we want, yet acquire victories and titles with a best car. It’s a contrition that Lucas Auer was deprived of profitable points on Sunday. Otherwise a conditions before a culmination during Hockenheim would be even some-more stirring since Mercedes-Benz has always been unequivocally clever there. But even so, a DTM fans can demeanour brazen to a illusory showdown.”

Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM #5) position 1 / position 5
“I’m unequivocally happy. we had dual good races with a feat and fifth place, and was means to measure many points. At a restart on Sunday, we unequivocally had a misfortune tires in a field. On a whole, this weekend has been good fun.”

Nico Müller (Playboy Audi RS 5 DTM #51) position 3 / position 3
“The second foe was genuine fun. From position 5 on Sunday it was some-more formidable to finish on lectern than on Saturday. It was good that it worked out. we had a series of illusory fights. Plus, we distinguished dual one-two-three wins for Audi. I’m unequivocally happy that we was partial of them. The strongest motorist of a weekend was blank on Sunday: Jamie (Green). He would have deserved a 25 points. This year has been a bit delayed for me. That’s since Spielberg felt good. And I’m happy for my guys about a lectern places. They worked tough for them.”

René Rast (AUTO BILD MOTORSPORT Audi RS 5 DTM #33) position 13 / position 1
“On a one hand, I’m happy about victory. These are critical points for a championship. On a other hand, I’m a tiny unhappy since a ideal group outcome would have been probable on Sunday. I’m contemptible for Jamie (Green). He was a widespread motorist this weekend. we wouldn’t have begrudged him victory. But a foe is usually over when a mottled dwindle has fallen. It wasn’t a ideal weekend for us Rosberg boys yet we’re behind in a diversion for a championship. That should give us tailwind for Hockenheim.”

Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM #99) position 7 / position 2
“I’m happy about a podium. But we would have also been happy about third place since in terms of a foe Jamie (Green) was simply stronger on Sunday. It was good entrance second from fourth on a grid. The restart was a prominence for me. Before a array stop, zero was operative for me, and some drivers upheld me. But on a second set of tires a automobile felt good again. And afterwards a reserve automobile came. After a good restart, we was means to mount my belligerent opposite Marco Wittmann. On Saturday, we could have finished on lectern too with a good strategy. That we didn’t conduct that sticks as a tiny negative.”

Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM #53) position 2 / position 14
“This weekend Team Rosberg and we showed a clever performance. The Audi RS 5 DTM with a same weight as a foe was unequivocally strong. I’m unapproachable of a dual stick positions. On Sunday, we was unequivocally tighten to a foe feat until 3 laps before a finish a changeable problem occurred. That was frustrating. But now we need to demeanour ahead.”

Loïc Duval (Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM #77) position 14 / position 8
“That we managed to measure points again on Sunday is a positive. But on a whole things didn’t go as expected. Audi did a good pursuit this weekend and showed that we’ve got a best car. Personally, we had problems in both subordinate sessions. There are always a few tiny things blank that keep us from behaving as planned. In a races, though, we’ve been means to keep gait well. we wish that we’ll do improved in subordinate during Hockenheim – that would make life easier for us, because, as we all know, we have a tough time in a DTM but a good grid position.”
