The new Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM already knows what is to win in your
second race. The car of the signing of Stuttgart has had a debut very
positive getting to be competitive throughout the weekend in
Hockenheim, which has served to Paul Di Resta for the win,
first that gets in the DTM after his return from the Formula 1. After the
pilot the scottish podium for the BMW M4 DTM Timo Glock and Augusto Farfus. Sunday
to forget for the interests of the spaniards with Miguel Molina and Dani Juncadella
out of the race.
Paul Di Resta was asserting his pole to keep the first position, oblivious to the fight at three to be produced by behind and left to Maxime Martin in second position after the friction between Farfus and Paffett, a mishap which gave a great advantage to the Mercedes driver. In the rear of the group, Jamie Green, Bruno Spengler, Esteban Ocon and Edo Mortara touched, which provoked the deployment of the new BMW M4 GTS that makes the work of the Safety Car. This situation allowed to stabilize the group in which Miguel Molina and Dani Juncadella drove 19th and 20th.
Paffett managed to overtake Maxime Martin in the resalida. However, the real struggle is developed in the rear of the group where Ekström, Goetz, Rockenfeller and Auer were not given even an inch of respite. This was Miguel Molina to ascend to the sixteenth position. However, in a group of seven riders that colonizaba all of the interest of the race the situation was at a turning and in a blink of an eye Molina in various positions, in addition to receiving the black flag and white for forcing another driver off track.
Augusto Farfus also got to overtake Maxime Martin in the
fight for the third place, while Antonio Felix Da Costa had
an output of track that forced him to abandon shortly after. Just
after this time they started the pit stops, although that’s not
prevented Paul Di Resta to keep the first position ahead of Gary
Paffett after its passage through the pitlane, in large part because Paffett is
was with a Molina who delayed his stop and I rode slower. All in all, the positions on the podium were kept
without changes in the absence of the stop of the pilot Spanish.
however, Gary Paffett was penalised for ‘Unsafe Release’ in your stop
pit and after serving a Drive-Through fell out of the top ten. Augusto
Farfus and Timo Glock were heirs of the positions on the podium, every time that the
the German managed to overtake Maxime Martin minutes prior to the abandonment of
Miguel Molina, which was lying at the entrance of the pit after
committing a spinning top. With the spaniard out of the race, the first ten
positions are normalizaban, with Paul di Resta, treasuring a great
advantage over the BMW M4 DTM Farfus, Glock and Martin.
Gary Paffett managed to climb to the fifth position
after beating Tomczyk, Blomqvist and Wickens in the final stretch of the race,
while Dani Juncadella had to leave after suffering a output
track. After the ‘Slow Zone’, Timo Glock overtook Augusto Farfus for the
second position, overtaking that served to put the finishing touch to the race.
Paul Di Resta claimed the first victory of the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM and its
first win since his return to the category German. Timo Glock and Augusto Farfus
completing the podium, while the area of points in the completed Martin,
Paffett, Wickens, Blomqvist, Muller, Wittmann and Tomczyk.
