BMW has completely destroyed this weekend in the Netherlands. German Touring Car Championship moved to the legendary circuit of Zandvoort, a trace of the old school that has given much of himself. The track, very technical and narrow, difficult to overtake, so go ahead is essential. Moreover, today’s poleman is to do with the victory of the second race of races.
Yesterday everyone was surprised by the top seven riders taken over by BMW, a historic event that never happened with a mark of this championship. Wittmann took the victory ahead of Antonio Felix da Costa and Maxime Martin, displacing Augusto Farfus off the podium despite starting from pole. Today, BMW is back sweep, and this time has made five career top positions.
The victory has been very tight, as the top five have fought for victory until the end, but as a result of the difficulty of overtaking at the Dutch circuit, the positions have not changed much. Da Costa has done with his first victory in the DTM after debuting last year, and has kept at bay peers Farfus and Spengler, who have finished completing the podium. The Top 5 of the German mark have completed without undue hardship, the Germans Timo Glock and Marco Wittmann.
In ranking the best Audi was Miquel Molina with his fifth place, but the Catalan has suffered a lot in the race and ended up falling to 12th place, out of the points, in a rather disappointing day. The points are over the closing Pascal Wehrlein as best Mercedes and Mattias Ekström as best Audi, followed by Christian Vietoris (Mercedes), Adrien Tambay (Audi) and Gary Paffett (Mercedes), the latter holding off the Audi envestidas Mike Rockenfeller.
Too much bad luck for Dani Juncadella (Mercedes), who had to leave again in the fourth round of the calendar. Joining him were also left out Martin Tomczyk (BMW), Edoardo Mortara (Audi) and Nico Müller (Audi).
The DTM returns to action shortly on the Red Bull Ring, in the beautiful and bucolic land Spielberg double fifth round of the German Touring Car Championship will be held between 31 of July and 2 of August.
