Audi Sport endures difficult day at Oschersleben

The 13th race of the 2015 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) season at Motorsport Park Oschersleben was one that Audi Sport had to endure, especially with the performance weights making a distinct difference to the team’s performance.

Miguel Molina was the only driver to make it into the top ten, scoring a mere two points for the Ingolstadt marque, which meant they were still able to hold onto their slight lead in the constructors’ title.

Head of DTM, Dieter Gass, was very understanding towards the struggles the team had, in terms of the differentials between the brands.

“When you start from midfield, you’re obviously in a very vulnerable position – especially here at Oschersleben. We could see that again today.

“The only consolation is that we’re reducing weight. But this won’t have an effect until the next race weekend at the Nürburgring.”

Even with a safety car invention twice during the race, Molina was unable to make the best of any potential opportunities on a track that is renowned for overtaking difficulties.

““More was simply not possible today,” explained the 26-year-old, who was the best of the Audis in both the race and qualifying.

“Still, the two points are a nice reward for my mechanics who managed to repair my car in time for the race following my accident in qualifying. I’d like to thank them for that!”

With the cars of Edoardo Mortara, Mike Rockenfeller, Jamie Green and Nico Müller being retired after a lot of damage following the first turn incident, Audi is looking to limit the loss of points that they suffered in the race by maximizing their efforts towards race 14.

The Ingolstadt brand is currently nine points ahead of BMW, with Mercedes a further 20 points behind ahead of race 14.
