Great race, fantastic finish, shame that Glock didn't make it but incredible fight with Auer. And Rockenfeller... where did he come from? Ekstrom one of the men of the race for me. Shame that Engel was pushed by Green...
All in all very good racing, it seems that new tyres and abandoning pit stop window were good decisions

Great race, enjoyed.

The Green penalty was harsh IMHO.

Hi, i was wondering if you guys could clarify some of the new rules for me please. I thought that radio contact other than for safety reasons was now banned? During the race alot of radio contact that was played on air seemed to have little or no relevance to safety.

Also i thought you could only have 2 mechanics on each side of the car helping to change the tires? For sure during Martins stop on the right side of the car there were 3 mechanics involved in changing the right rear tyre. Maybe ive miss understood the rules.

On the first point, the driver is allowed to talk to the team, but they can't reply unless during Safety Cars and Pit Stops. So they played out the drivers talking to the team during the races.

Not sure about point number 2.

Well, actually when it comes to point number 2, it is not said that two mechanics aren't allowed but that has to be only one wheel gun per side. And as far as I've seen there was only one mechanic with a wheel gun on each side indeed.

That was one of the best modern DTM races I've ever seen. Which... isn't saying much, but since I think this series is 2nd only to F1 in driver quality, I've always watched. The way the Mercs were fast on fresh rubber then struggled late, while the Audis were seemingly unaffected by whether they were on new or old tires really brought everything together today.

Race 2 race under way.

The lap 4 restart was ridiculous.

The undercut is providing some action this year. Not because of fresher tyres, but because those on cold tyres are seeking taking 3 laps to get back up to speed.

Yep, you're right. I'm pretty disappointed by today's race, not that entertaining as both Hockenheim races but maybe that's because most of my favourites were rather down in the field
I'm worried by BMW performance, especially Wittmann. He's terribly and sadly without pace this year so far...

I reckon they'll be more early pit stops in tomorrow's race now.

The action in general seems a little better than last year so far

Let's see if BMW can recover.

Took a LM24 break to watch (most of) this race, and boy did Audi screw it up. They dominated both qualifying and the race, but not a single one of their teams thought to cover the early stoppers. Not only losing a ton of positions/points, but with performance ballast, they'll likely be the slowest car in the 2nd race to boot.

Feel sorry for Rene Rast, quite enjoyed the race.

The top 3 were very, very, fortunate that Martin parked the car there...
