The best scenes of the Zandvoort weekend
Take a look at the most thrilling moments of the DTM doubleheader at Zandvoort, Netherlands. From tough contact with the crash barriers to unintentional flight elements… The action at the Dutch dune circuit had it all.
For Mercedes driver Paul Di Resta, the Saturday race came to an early end. Following a close encounter with Robert Wickens, the Scot crashed hard into the crash barriers, thus causing the only safety-car period of the weekend.
In the second qualifying session, Bruno Spengler took his black BMW M4 DTM really hard over the curbs and the sparks were flying. Only the super slow motion shows what a punishment a DTM car has to take during such a manoeuvre.
In the second race, Marco Wittmann and Miguel Molina had a close encounter while exiting the pit lane. “He tried do push me over the white line.” Wittmann said after the race, “And I was surprised that he didn’t receive a penalty.” Take a look at the slow motion and form your own opinion.
Around race half-time, a contact with Edoardo Mortara made Daniel Juncadella get airborne – truly worth seeing! Unfortunately, this manoeuvre meant the end of the Spaniard’s race.
Tom Blomqvist didn’t make new friends in the Mercedes camp when bumping into Robert Wickens in turn one and turning him around. As ‘reward’, the BMW rookie had to come in for an unscheduled stay in the pit lane.
