DTM Oschersleben: Race 1 at a glance

A perfect day for Timo Glock

Pole position, victory and the fastest race lap: for Timo Glock, things went according to plan on the DTM Saturday at the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. Having started the race from first place, Glock drove an undisputed lights-to-flag victory home and secured his second major success in the most popular international touring car series after 28 laps. A big joy also for his team principal Ernest Knoors as the BMW Team MTEK achieved a clean sweep of the first two places with Bruno Spengler finishing second. António Félix da Costa in third place and Augusto Farfus in fourth made it a perfect Saturday for BMW. In spite of problems on his Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM, Pascal Wehrlein still managed to bring fifth place home. His reward for keeping on after the power steering failed is first place in the drivers’ standings. Prior to the second race at Oschersleben, the 20-year-old is now leading with 130 points from Audi driver Mattias Ekström (126 points). The Swede had started the race from the last row on the grid and took the chequered flag in 14th place.
