Following the previous wet day, the Audi drivers on Sunday were battling with dull weapons on a dry track, as expected. Jamie Green (Audi Sport Team Rosberg) as the best Audi driver qualified for grid position eleven. Leader of the standings Mattias Ekström (Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline) entered the race from position 13. All other Audi campaigners found themselves at the rear of the grid.
Mattias Ekström and Jamie Green made the best of their difficult starting positions. Both pitted late in a race with turbulent phases and on fresh tyres in the final stage still battled their way forwards from positions ten and eleven to six and seven. With that, both scored valuable points in the title race which, before the last two race weekends at Spielberg and Hockenheim, has now become even more intense.
