Nico Müller has made up ground in the DTM title race. The Audi driver, currently second in the table, won Saturday´s race at the Lausitzring to close the gap to fellow Audi racer and championship leader René Rast, who was forced to retire with technical issues. Robin Frijns and Mike Rockenfeller came home second and third to make it a one-two-three for Audi in Lusatia. With track temperatures hitting 36 degrees, the tyres supplied by exclusive DTM partner Hankook once again impressed with a high level of grip on the smooth surface.
Premium tyre maker Hankook and the DTM return to Germany this weekend. The Lausitzring is the venue for round seven of the season in arguably the most popular international touring car series, as the title race comes to a head. René Rast is favourite to win the championship, following his victory on the Sunday at Brands Hatch. The Audi driver has only failed to pick up points in two of the twelve DTM races so far and, with four wins, four podiums, a fifth and a seventh place, has been consistently strong. His closest rival is fellow Audi racer, Nico Müller, who trails Rast by 37 points. BMW drivers Marco Wittmann and Philipp Eng are still within striking distance in third and fourth place, but will have to start winning races if they are to catch the two Audi men. The Hankook race tyre could play a key role in the final stages of the season, as its high degree of consistency and predictability allows aggressive race strategies.
