Timo Glock was the best of the BMWs in seventh, ahead of Team RBM’s Augusto Farfus, with defending champion Marco Witmann 15th, 1.101 seconds off the pace set by Green.
Loic Duval helped to put all Audi Sport drivers into the top ten, going tenth fastest in his RS5 DTM, 0.012 seconds behind Auer.
Paul Di Resta was 12th behind Tom Blomqvist, with 2012 champion Bruno Spengler and Robert Wickens behind the Scottish driver.
