Started the DTM loaded of emotions in his feud historic, Hockenheim. After the first two races of the season at this historic circuit, the Championship German Touring makes the bags and leaves his hometown in Germany to visit Austria and the layout of the Red Bull Ring. The track ‘adopted’ by the brand of energy drinks has been a place of usual stop for the DTM and although in its early appearances in the championship the domain was Mercedes, in recent years, BMW and Audi have spread the victories, being the firm of Ingolstadt, the great protagonist.
Red Bull Ring, also known by Spielberg, and in the past as Österreichring, it is a path that is located in the mountains of austria and this makes it possible that we are on track with some slopes. Has a total length of 4.326 meters and is composed by only eight curves, although that does not preclude that there are different angles. The huge braking of turn 2 and 3, the curves linked to the second sector and the last two corners of the circuit, curves of support and aerodynamic load, as shown. Finding the balance is not an easy task in the track austrian.
Despite being a little clue prone to the interests of the
brand of Stuttgart, Paul Di Resta and Mercedes-AMG come as leaders of all
classifications. The pilot scottish got in Hockenheim his first
victory since returning to the DTM, a result that led him to clamber on to the
highest of the classification. In fact, the weekend at Hockenheim not only
it was helpful to the interests of Paul Di Resta in the bosom of Mercedes, already
Robert Wickens slipped into second in the general after adding a podium in
the first race of the weekend.
It is evident that the opening of the season in Hockenheim
left large benefits in Mercedes, but it is not less certain that several pilots
Audi and BMW showed a great pace and potential. Edoardo Mortara won the
first race of the year with the Audi RS 5 DTM, while Nico Müller was one
pilots more regular in the house of Ingolstadt. For his part, Maxime
Martin was the best pilot of BMW, although Augusto Farfus
also had a good role. And what about the Spanish riders? Dani Juncadella
as Miguel Molina must take a step to the front in Austria.
