2010: The tables have been turned
Champion: Paul Di Resta
After three consecutive title wins Audi had little resistance to put up against the Mercedes squad. Just two races before the season ended, it was clear that the new champion would be driving a Mercedes. At the dramatic season finale Paul Di Resta intercepted the stumbling leader of the standings, Bruno Spengler, in the brand-internal fight between three front runners. Gary Paffett won the race, thus moving up to second place overall. The best Audi driver was Timo Scheider in fourth position overall.
