Mike Rockenfeller won the first race ever of the DTM in Russia. The German driver who starts from the pole was followed by his mate in Audi, Mattias Ekström. Farfus (BMW) closed the podium and Spengler only can finish in P18.

Audi reigns absolute in Moscow, and the German cars fight for the P1 with Ekström and Rockenfeller, but the Audi Team Principal thinking with the championship fight, made a good strategy for booth. Farfus finished third but the Brazilian driver had some difficulties to defend his position because the young Frenchman, Adrian Tambay fights for this position but finally he can’t take this one.
