D he first exchange of blows during free practice on Friday in Oschersleben went to Audi. Timo Scheider seems more and more in top form and again claimed the title of best Audi driver for himself. Even if there is still little going on on Friday.
Miguel Molina fast on the road
Scheider set the fastest lap in 1.23.071 minutes, leaving his team-mate Mattias Ekström 0.158 seconds behind. It was Ekström's first DTM outing after his Nascar outing last weekend. Oliver Jarvis, the third Abt driver in the group, came in third and lost 0.288 seconds to Scheider. Miguel Molina surprised once again with fourth place in the year-old car. The young Spaniard also seems to have found his way around the Magdeburg Börde quickly and is sure to be a secret favorite for the rest of the weekend.
Paul di Resta held up the Mercedes flag in Oschersleben with fifth place. The Brands Hatch winner was already 0.660 seconds behind Scheider. His team mate Bruno Spengler had a similar experience with sixth place. Mike Rockenfeller opens the mishmash of new and annual cars. As the second-best Audi year-old driver, he found himself in seventh place. Behind them are Gary Paffett and Maro Engel, another new and annual car in eighth and ninth place. Markus Winkelhock not only completes the top ten, but also maintains the interplay in the year’s car.
Tomczyk and Schumacher are lagging behind
That should be the only two remaining new car drivers outside of the top ten worms. Ralf Schumacher did not get past eleventh place, Martin Tomczyk still seems to be out of rhythm and came in twelfth.
