I got the second position
, which eventually served to overcome Edo
Mortara. The Italian downplayed damage with a great comeback, although their
title options have been reduced still more.
In a perfect output, Miguel Molina was placed leader after overtaking the poleman António Félix Da Costa. Third, for its part, and without being involved in the battle between the two is positioning itself Marco Wittmann, an attitude of cautious and logical to be escorted by Tom Blomqvist. In fact, Wittmann came out winning because his rival for the title, Edo Mortara is the I was stiff with Timo Glock. The German made a perfect team work to bring the Italian to the eighth position with a maneuver as a minimum set. Behind, Dani Juncadella won five positions in the output to be seventeenth.
After a first offense of António Félix Da Costa, Miguel Molina got a space of about three seconds on the Portuguese, which led to BMW Motorsport to run the first movements to secure the drivers title. António Félix Da Costa is allowed to pass by Marco Wittmann, leaving the German second and as a champion virtual of the DTM, every time that the role of judge that I could have a Mercedes left in anything with six of its eight cars in the last six positions. Felix Rosenqvist put the icing on the drama of the signing of Stuttgart abandoning half of the race.
despite their determined defence, Edo Mortara was stealing the wallet to Timo Glock, which in turn allowed the Italian to hunt Augusto Farfus and overtake the brazilian. Placed in the sixth position, Mortara is put into chase mode to give chase to Mike Rockenfeller, knowing that their potential partner in the Team Abt Sportsline, he was going to cede the position. Complied with the procedure, Mortara are not used to take or a spin on take off the middle Tom Blomqvist to climb to the fourth position, thereby reducing the points lost compared to Wittmann and taking a step forward to achieving the title of equipment to the Audi.
The overtaking of Mike Rockenfeller and René Rast on Tom Blomqvist also served to improve the result of Audi in their fight with BMW for the title of brands, although all the attention came to fall on the front already that Edo Mortara signed a large ‘cavalcade’ to be placed in the wake of António Félix Da Costa. The Italian thought for a second and with an overtaking to the limit Mortara got the third place of the podium with two rounds played. Insufficient in any case to be able to overcome Wittmann.
all in all, Miguel Molina signed his third victory in the DTM in a race shaped in a large output. Second crossed the finish line Marco Wittmann, while Edo Mortara finished third. With this result, Wittmann gets three extra points in the battle for the title and will face the last race of the season with 17 units of advantage on Mortara. Off the podium and fight for the title, António Félix Da Costa was fourth, followed by German Mike Rockenfeller, who confirmed the bet of Audi giving a few valuable points to the Team Abt Sportsline in relation to the eighth joined by Timo Glock.
