Timo Glock will start ahead in the second race of the DTM
at Hockenheim after getting the pole position in the qualifying session Sunday.
The pilot of BMW, who reached podium positions in the first race of
the season, has managed to stop the clock in 1:31.406 to achieve the first
position. Despite the lack of grip and skidding that has starred in the
German, Glock will lead the grill ahead of the Audi of René Rast. By
behind both of them stand Mike Rockenfeller and Edo Mortara, two pilots already
demonstrated during the Saturday its great potential.
With an asphalt much colder and without as much grip, pilots
have taken pains to not make mistakes. Between derrapada and derrapada, Edo
Mortara has scored the best provisional time reached the equator of the session.
Due to the lack of grip, the track has been improving with the passage of the cars and
this has resulted in better times they got to the end of the session. In that
time, Timo Glock has signed the decisive 1:31.406 which has led to
to overcome the Audi RS 5 DTM of René Rast and Jamie Green, much more competitive
after the first adjustment of weights.
Edo Mortara will start in fourth position with the first of the
Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM, so that you will have great options of fighting for the
podium-a goal which escaped him in Saturday’s race. All in all, the pilot
Italian has tough rivals just behind, as in the third row will leave
Mike Rockenfeller and Bruno Spengler. The German pilot of Audi has been
protagonist of the one mishap of the session, the whole time it has had to go
out of track before an action is a bit strange of Robert Wickens that will has
left without enough space.
Gary Paffett and Lucas Auer will share the fourth row to the
controls of their two Mercedes. While the british pilot had a
performance more to less during Saturday’s race, it can be said that the
austrian facing the second sleeve, without pressure, after adding the first victory
2017. The top ten have completed Maro Engel and Mattias Ekström, both to
nearly seven-tenths of the time of reference. With a time very similar, Paul di
Subtraction has remained in eleventh, and will have to overcome if you want to add a good
loot points in the second race of the weekend.
