•    A strong start, a strong race: Bruno Spengler dominates on Sunday

•    Audi drivers Jamie Green and Mike Rockenfeller on the podium

•    Albert II, Prince of Monaco, visits the DTM in Nuremberg



Great sport and glamour at the Norisring: Bruno Spengler (CDN) has won the Sunday race at the Norisring. The key to success: a brilliant start and clever tactics at the only street circuit on the DTM calendar. Before the Canadian, around one week after the Canadian national day, was able to accept the winner’s trophy from Albert II, Prince of Monaco, hard work was required.



The BMW driver gradually pulled away from his strong rivals from the Audi camp, but light rain made calling the right strategy a tricky one: when is the right time to make the mandatory pit stop? Are rain tyres needed? They weren’t, and Spengler scored his first DTM race win in two years. His last victory to date was at Norisring in 2017. With a total of five victories, Spengler is now the DTM driver who has the highest number of wins in Nuremberg.



An Audi trio in second, third and fourth place



Jamie Green (GBR, Audi) came out on top in the battle for second place and the minister-president of Bavaria, Dr. Markus Söder, presented him with the trophy during the prize-giving ceremony as a reward. The battle for third was intense: Robin Frijns (NED, Audi), Philipp Eng (AUT, BMW) and Loïc Duval (FRA, Audi) were all in contention, but it was Mike Rockenfeller (GER, Audi) who secured the final podium slot.



For the two front-runners in the drivers’ standings, René Rast (GER, Audi) and Nico Müller (SUI, Audi), who were alongside each other on the front row of the grid, the second race at Norisring didn’t quite go according to plan. The two slightly tangled as they drove through the S-corner for the first time. The consequence: a spin for Rast, a drive-through penalty for Müller, and eventually a seventh- and eighth-place finish.



Like on Saturday, Daniel Juncadella (ESP) scored points by finishing tenth, again as the bestplaced R-Motorsport/Aston Martin driver. Rast remains in the lead of the championship with 127 points, Müller has 102 points in second place, Eng is third with 101 points.




» Quotes – race 2, Norisring



“That was an interesting race today. The DTM is a good series that is very well organised. The races are very competitive. I really liked the visit here in Nuremberg, the atmosphere at the Norisring is truly remarkable.”
Albert II, Prince of Monaco




Gerhard Berger, Chairman ITR e. V.



“It was a great weekend. A good atmosphere, many spectators, great competition. I wasn’t just delighted with the visit by Prince Albert of Monaco, but also with the fact that minister-president Söder showed his support for motorsport with his visit. The DTM weekend at the Norisring is a highlight.



This weekend, there has also been much talk about a possible race in Monaco at the occasion of Prince Albert’s visit. After what I have experienced today, I have to say: my dream would be two DTM events in the city, one in Nuremberg and one in Monaco. In any case, we are looking forward to racing here at the Norisring again next year.”






Bruno Spengler, winner


“This victory is really great. I already came close at Zolder, but the safety car got into our way. Today, it wasn’t needed and we won. It was great fun, the car was sensational. Compared to yesterday, we improved significantly. A cool day for us, really mega. Now, we carry the momentum.”







Jamie Green, 2nd place


“I had a nice duel for second place with Philipp Eng and I overtook him. We slightly tangled in the process, so I had to hand back the position back to him. Perhaps, the penalty was a little bit too harsh, because I have experienced much harder manoeuvres in the DTM. With the first set of tyres, I had some problems, the second stint went much better. All in all, second place is a great result.”





Mike Rockenfeller, 3rd place



“Congratulations to Bruno Spengler and Jamie Green on first and second place. I think, between us, we probably are the most experienced DTM podium that you can have. My weekend started off well, but in qualifying on Saturday, we first had bad luck and then also had to take in a penalty.



In the race on Saturday, I then also had to retire with a technical failure. Then also the penalty in qualifying today for which I am taking full responsibility. With that, we were in the middle of the pack. We had no other option than to give it all we had. I had good duels and the podium definitely is a nice reward.”

46.146 seconds

» Regulations at a glance


    Tyres




The tyres are supplied exclusively by series partner Hankook. The front wheels use size 300/680-18 “Ventus” tyres, with 320/710-18 for the rear. Each driver can use a maximum of seven sets of tyres for all sessions (practice, qualifying and races) in a weekend. The use of tyre warmers is forbidden. This was already the case for slicks and it is also forbidden for wet-weather tyres from 2019 onwards.





» And then there was …




    … a state visit in Nuremberg. For the first time in DTM history, Albert II, Prince of Monaco, came to visit a race. The five-time Olympian in bobsleigh and participant of the 1985 Dakar Rally normally hands over the winner’s trophy to the winner of the Monaco Grand Prix (in the royal box) and the winners of the Rally Monte Carlo in the royal palace of his home country.



Now, Albert II handed over the trophy to the winner and to the best manufacturer in Nuremberg, but not after getting a detailed impression of the DTM, both in front of and behind the scenes.
