DTM at Spielberg: First win for the championship leader Ekström
Mattias Ekström finally scores his first win in the 2017 DTM season today at Red Bull Ring. He needed fifteen races in the #5 Audi RS5 DTM for the first win of the season and his 25th DTM victory in a career.
Despite not winning races earlier this year, Ekström was in the championship lead and now he extends his advantage over the second-placed driver to 28 points, with three more races on a calendar.
Jamie Green finished second in the first race of the DTM weekend at Red Bull Ring, not managing to convert his first pole position into his third win of the season. However, today’s P2 promoted Green to the second place in the championship, leaving Lucas Auer (Mercedes), Rene Rast (Audi) and Marco Wittmann (BMW) behind. Auer finished 8th, Rast 13th and Wittmann fifth today.
Nico Müller completes the perfect Saturday for Audi, finishing in the third place, what is his first podium of the season. Robert Wickens was the best Mercedes driver in fourth place.
