Maro Engel scores his maiden DTM victory today at Moscow Raceway in the second race of the DTM weekend in Russia. A driver of the #63 Mercedes-AMG C63, who was in the 17th place of DTM standings before this race and started 17th on the grid, managed to beat Mattias Ekstrom in the #5 Audi RS5.

With this podium finish, Ekstrom returned to the championship lead which he lost for one day after yesterday’s win for Rene Rast.

Rast finished fourth today, behind Bruno Spengler in the #7 BMW M4. Spengler started a race from pole position after the fastest qualifier Tom Blomqvist was disqualified due to fuel miscalculation.

Other points scorers in the second race are Jamie Green, Marco Wittmann, Mike Rockenfeller, Tom Blomqvist, Lucas Auer and Robert Wickens.
