Jamie Green will act as a ‘team-player’ after taking Sunday pole

Audi Sport Team Rosberg’s Jamie Green snatched Sunday pole from his DTM championship leading teammate René Rast in the dying seconds of second qualifying at the Nürburgring.

Despite getting the better of his teammate by one thousandth of a second round the 3.629km short circuit, Green, who trails Rast by 184 points, was adamant he would do his part to help Rast on his title quest.

At the last round at the Lausitzring, Green moved aside in race two to allow Rast to seal an important victory and reestablish his championship lead after retiring on Saturday.

“It’s similar to Lausitzring, I was on pole there,” explained the 37 year old, “And it’s a similar situation championship-wise.

“I’m an Audi driver and a team-player, so I will have to see who’s behind me or where I am after the start.

“First things first is to do a good start.”

The championship could be wrapped up today with Rast, who starts second on the grid, likely to score strong points whilst main championship rival Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline’s Nico Müller starts in 15th.

Green is ninth in the points standings, 19 points behind BMW Team RMG’s Bruno Spengler, and a comfortable 23 ahead of Audi Sport Team WRT’s Jonathan Aberdein.

However, the 2015 runner-up will be doing all he can to aid not only his teammate to a second DTM title, but the Team Rosberg outfit in the tight team’s championship fight with Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline.
