DTM: Audi accepts decision of the DMSB

Audi Press Release

he DMSB retroactively excluded Miguel Molina from the qualifying session of the DTM race at Oschersleben.

The reason: The position of the two lateral end plates of the rear wing on the Audi RS 5 DTM of the Spaniard, who had previously clinched the pole position, did not conform to the Technical Regulations. The differences to the prescribed position were in the range of millimeters: 1.5 millimeters on the left and 2.7 millimeters on the right.

Dieter Gass, Head of DTM at Audi Sport: “We accept the decision of the DMSB and apologize to Miguel. The difference apparently stems from an oversight in quality assurance at Audi Sport and definitely had no influence on Miguel’s strong performance.”

Molina will start round two of the season on Sunday from the last position on the grid.
