 The duel between Rast against Müller entered its next round. With third place on the grid against Rast’s fourth position, Müller just had the upper hand and scored an additional point.

Green, already a three-time race winner at Lausitzring, claimed pole position, but missed out on a podium finish after losing time during his pit-stop. BMW again had difficulties against Audi’s current dominance.

With Wittmann, once again the best-placed driver for the brand from Munich, and Eng in sixth and 10th places respectively, the only BMW drivers to score points. Ex-Formula 1 driver Timo Glock had to retire early.

Strong privateer Audi team: Aberdein second on the grid, Fittipaldi also in the points

Again, the privateer Audi team WRT deserved the greatest acknowledgement. In qualifying, South African Jonathan Aberdein caused a major surprise with the second-fastest time and a slot on the front row of the grid.

In the race, Aberdein worked hard and finished sixth while his Brazilian teammate Pietro Fittipaldi again scored points by finishing ninth following his seventh place from the previous day.

Aston Martin, meanwhile, remained empty-handed. Daniel Juncadella (ESP) briefly led the field during the pit stop phase, but didn’t score any points by finishing twelfth.
