Juncadella loses his podium, Wittmann also excluded


Dani Juncadella and Marco Wittmann have been excluded from the main race of the DTM in Hungary by the curators technicians to not move their vehicles to scrutineering post-race. With this decision for an infringement in the article 3.22.4 of the Technical Regulation, Juncadella loses his first podium in the DTM despite being the best driver of Mercedes-AMG at the track located in Budapest. For his part, Marco Wittmann sees it as his advantage at the front of the table of classification is reduced to 14 points on Edo Mortara, who was at the end of the short race of the weekend.

luck is not part of Dani Juncadella, and so has become clear at the end of this week. After debuting a brand new chassis straightened his Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM and be the only rider of the mark of Stuttgart able to fight in the top places in the race on Sunday*, Juncadella has seen his first podium in the DTM it escapes between your hands for a deficiency in the minimum height of the ‘skid pads’, the same offense that has also been appreciated in the BMW M4 DTM Marco Wittmann.

With the disqualification of Juncadella and Wittmann, third and fourth in the race, António Félix Da Costa becomes the third-ranked, while the classification of the DTM gives a small rollover. With the 12 points lost by Wittmann, the German pilot looks like Mortara and Green -both were dropped and remain in the fight for the title. In fact, Edo Mortara is located at 14 points Wittmann, while Green happens to have a handicap of 39 points, when before the exclusion had lost any option mathematical. All in all, the outcome of the race is provisional as Mercedes-AMG and BMW are going to appeal this decision.

* Chronic original career.
