The DTM is in its final stretch, and in the absence of six races all
can occur. The paths of the Nürburgring, the Hungaroring and Hockenheim will decide
the champion of a season in 2016, which until now has been full of
emotions. However, it is advisable to go step by step and focus on the two
first rounds this combat to six bell that has the Nürburgring
as its first stage. A path complicated, technical and fond memories
for the Spanish fans as in the second race of the 2015 Catalan Miguel
Molina scored its first victory in the competition.
As usual, the DTM uses the short variant of the layout of the Nürburgring, limited to 3.629 m. Despite this, the riders were faced with 11 curves in a track that has two sections of high speed in that you get to record top speed of 245 km/h and combined with strong braking, a section more twisty and a final chicane on more than one occasion has decided to racing. The longest straight of the track is 680 feet, something to have in mind at the time of power forward.
A path ultimately demanding of the engines and also with the brakes, ingredients that will have to deal with the four candidates for the title. Marco Wittmann arrives at the Nürburgring as the rival to beat after getting the victory in the second race in Moscow. Although in the global computing of the weekend he lost several points of advantage over Robert Wickens, this victory allowed Wittmann to reach the 130 points, twelve more than the Mercedes driver. For its part and after a tough weekend in Russian lands, Jamie Green and Edo Mortara, both Audi drivers, you need to take a step to the front.
despite all this, the condition of four student pilots
the title can change in a blink of an eye, to such an extent
Paul Di Resta could get invested in the fight for the championship.
And all of this is possible because the Nürburgring is a track unpredictable
where several riders can do well. Maxime Martin was the man
stronger on this track in 2015 getting a win. Lucas Auer,
Bruno Spengler, Gary Paffett or Tom Blomqvist are pilots that have gone
fast in the last few visits the DTM at the Nürburgring.
should also look at the Spanish riders. Miguel Molina achieved his
first triumph in the DTM with the Audi RS 5 on this track and Dani
Juncadella has managed to score points in two of the three visits that has
done on this track at the wheel of the Mercedes-AMG C-Coupé. The
goal for both is to get a good result in a weekend
that in any case will be very marked by the ballasts
compensation. The first part of the weekend will be the Audi
and Mercedes with 1.117,5 1.127,5 kilos, while BMW will start
with 1.115 pounds after gaining weight in Moscow.
