Despite there having been four different winners in the first four races of the DTM 2016 season, Audi is confident that its RS5 DTM will be the first to see the checkered flag this weekend at Lausitzring, in Eastern Germany.


Last year, they had a great performance at the Lausitzring, with Audis filling up the top four spots in both races that weekend. The best performer, though, was Britain’s Jamie Green, who climbed to the top of the podium after both races.

This year, though, it’s Edoardo Mortara who has been Audi’s top performer. He won race 1 in Hockenheim and has placed well in most races this season. He currently sits 2 nd overall in the driver rankings, just three points behind first-place Paul di Resta in a Mercedes.

Practice starts today, with races on Saturday and Sunday.
