Spengler and Green claim front row of the starting grid at Lausitzring

Mercedes-Benz drivers lock out the front row on the starting grid for the fourth round of the DTM season at the Lausitzring: with a lap time of 1:19.119 minutes in qualifying for the race on Sunday, Bruno Spengler (Mercedes-Benz) claimed the best starting grid position. His team-mate Jamie Green (Mercedes-Benz) will be lining up alongside him on the front row of the grid. The Brit came 0.405 seconds short of Spengler’s fastest time.

With Mattias Ekström and Martin Tomczyk, two Audi drivers are on the second row. Swedish driver Ekström was classified third in qualifying. Tomczyk, who won the race at Spielberg in Austria a fortnight ago, claimed fourth place on the grid.

I just finished watching the live timing for the DTM race, both of the top qualified Mercedes slipped behind and Spengler ended up 3rd. Time to pick it up in the next race.

Thanks for the report. I was on the road and didn't catch it to post it. And you're right, let's hope they pick it up!
