Jamie Green does not understand his penalty at Hockenheim


Jamie Green took victory in the second race of the
DTM at Hockenheim
, not without some controversy after being penalised five seconds
in his pit stop for failure to comply with the new procedure of resalida. Though
was trained for the free, the first resalida with this format of two
rows of cars at a constant speed of 80 km/h not ended up being everything
fluid that is expected. In fact, Jamie Green reacted faster than Timo
, pilot who led the group, and crossed the line of departure before the
BMW M4 DTM’s German.

In spite of this fact, Jamie Green defends the met
with all the procedure
resalida without faults: “I don’t know what they are
talking about. We have been discussing about when to start the career, who decides to
the time. My understanding is that the race starts when the lights
, especially because we had the Race Director shouting for radio
‘Green’ when it starts. I reacted to that and that meant that I crossed the line
output before that Timo Glock did
, although it seems that all the world
he did this because Gary Paffett will also advanced before the first

Although the penalty didn’t cost the victory to Jamie Green
and that has earned him a seat to close the first weekend of competition with 26
points, the Audi driver understands that the problem was not in his performance:
I don’t know very well what made Glock, to be honest. I was only trying to
maintain the same speed that Timo, because I understood that he dictated the
speed and rhythm, so I tried to stay close to him. The idea is that
we are all very close together in the middle of the circuit and that was all I tried
