Pascal Wehrlein is the new champion of the DTM and it becomes
the youngest rider ever to achieve this, a day before his 21st birthday. The German has won the title
after finishing in the eighth position in the first race in Hockenheim.
An appointment marked by the problems of their main rivals.
The victory has been for Timo Scheider, which sum so your first win
in the DTM from the 2010 season. Complicated race for Miguel Molina and to
a Dani Juncadella finally, she was able to compete.
Maxime Martin was asserting its pole to be placed in the lead ahead of Scheider and Green, in an output in which Miguel Molina lost up to five positions after skating in the first few meters. In a key championship, Pascal Wehrlein and Mattias Ekström were many positions in the first few meters, falling below the fifteenth square. Yes, both lost a rival for the title. Edo Mortara had to pass by the pits after suffering a puncture in the front tire right. After a second contact with another rider and a Drive Through, abandoned in the last third of the race.
The drama in the Audi had not done more to start and in just the third lap, Mattias Ekström suffered a spin, which left it in the tray, the title to Wehrlein, who saw it as from the fifteenth position, he had his two rivals behind, the only requirement to conquer the crown of the DTM. Already in this time Timo Scheider had ascended to the top spot after beating Maxime Martin, while the Safety Car had to be deployed after a touch between Miguel Molina and Gary Paffett. The british left after receiving a strong blow in the same action of Farfus.
Robert Wickens and Bruno Spengler were penalized with single Drive Through, while the fight for the championship despite the overtaking of Pascal Wehrlein and Mattias Ekström became a delicacy tasteless. One of the people affected by the overtaking of both pilots was Dani Juncadella. Despite the unpreparedness food suffered during the day of Friday, and that forced him to miss the first free, Juncadella has finally recovered and has climbed in his Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM, without giving the opportunity to debut in the race Esteban Ocon.
Timo Scheider and Jamie Green managed the double for Audi, but the feast took place with the checkered flag in the heart of Mercedes. Pascal Wehrlein was proclaimed champion of the DTM in 2015 after crossing the finish line in the eighth position, after starring some overtaking manoeuvres remarkable and watch as all of his rivals had problems, including a Bruno Spengler who had to leave. On an equitable sharing of the successes, Maxime Martin got the last position of the podium for BMW. Paul di Resta was the best Mercedes at the first race in Hockenheim with his fourth position.
Difficult race for the Spanish riders. Miguel Molina and
Dani Juncadella have been the protagonists of the great battles
in their duels with
Martin Tomczyk or Edo Mortara, but the problems in the output, and the touch with
Gary Paffett have condemned the options for the Audi driver. For its part,
Dani Juncadella has completed a good career, but went in very different positions
Dani Juncadella has been 13th and Miguel Molina 14,
that will have to wait until the last race of the season to try to add
some points more in their locker.
