Mike Rockenfeller will start first in the second race of the DTM at Hockenheim position threat by Molina who has not snatched by 30 thousandths of a second in a classification marked by track conditions. Ekström was third completing a hat-trick in qualifying for Audi.
Everyone lined up at the end of the pit lane because of weather conditions, as the track was wet and was drying but the sky was black and could fall any shower at any time.
Wittmann gave the first shock going off at the stadium but without consequences. Martin and Green were those who commanded the table until Di Resta came up, he was the first to mount the slicks.
Everyone changed then to dry tires, the track was improving slowly and the drivers improved their positions lap by lap.
Blomqvist was leading when most entered a new set of slicks and went back to track in the absence of five minutes, the key would be in who would cross the finish line in the last second because if the track was impoving in the same way, he would have the pole.
In the last moments Juncadella came out in the Motodrome and caused a yellow flag and that quickly withdraw added to a small plug done by Wehrlein nullifyed the best lap of Di Resta.
Finally pole position for Rockenfeller, that position almost gets Miguel Molina who finished just 30 hundredths of German and third Swede Ekström. As for the top-ranked of the rookies would be Lucas Auer twenty.
