The 2015 Hockenheim I meeting, advertised as the DTM Festival was the first round of the 2015 DTM Season, held over four days at the Hockenheimring in Germany.[1] The weekend saw a new format for the DTM in several respects, with two races, a 40 minute one on Saturday, followed by a 60 minute one on Sunday.[1]

The first race was won by Jamie Green for Team Rosberg, whom led the race from pole position.[2] Pascal Wehrlein and Paul di Resta completed the podium, both driving for Mercedes-Benz.[2] A wet race two saw Mattias Ekström emerge victorious from second on the grid, joined by Edoardo Mortara and Gary Paffett (from 23rd on the grid) on the podium.[3]

BackgroundEdit

Testing before the season had seen Jamie Green emerge as one of the favourites for the championship although he would need to overcome a two year wait for a race win in order to fulfill his promise. Mercedes had focused heavily on developing the Mercedes C63 DTM over the winter, hoping to close the gap to the BMW M4 DTM and Audi RS5 DTM machines. Several drivers left the championship at the end of the 2014 season, with a few new faces getting their first chance in the DTM.

Maximilian Götz and Lucas Auer were the first to be announced, entering for Mercedes, with Auer being partnered with Gary Paffett at the brand new ART Grand Prix team.[4] Also joining the DTM family was Tom Blomqvist, a young British driver, whom replaced Joey Hand at BMW.[5] Otherwise, there were no other changes to the DTM grid from 2014, with Marco Wittmann hoping to become the first driver to successfully defend his crown since Timo Scheider in 2009.

FP1Edit

FP2Edit

Qualifying (Race One)Edit

The first qualifying session of the season saw Jamie Green clinch pole position in his Audi RS5 DTM, setting an unbeaten time of 1:33.044 around the Hockenheim circuit.[6] In a new format for the DTM, qualifying was held in one 20 minute session, in which drivers were to set the fastest time they could to determine their starting position.[6] The new format may have made the times more competitive than before, as 0.688s covered the top eighteen in the session.[6]

Behind Green came Pascal Wehrlein in his Mercedes C-Coupé, with Augusto Farfus ensuring that BMW were represented in the top three too.[6] This was not to last, however, as Farfus was sent to the back of the grid after qualifying, his punishment for having too little fuel to submit to the stewards at the end of the session.[7] His place on the grid was filled by Edorado Mortara, leaving debutant Tom Blomqvist as the highest placed BMW M4 DTM driver on the grid in eighth.[6]

Race OneEdit

Race one was held on Saturday, 2nd of May in dry conditions, with the grid unchanged after the post qualifying penalties were announced.[2] Race one was to be a 40 minute race, with no compulsory pitstop.

ReportEdit

Pole sitter Green got off the line cleanly to sweep into the first corner ahead of Pascal Wehrlein and Edoardo Mortara, while further back the pack serverly tightened.[8] Mattias Ekström and Daniel Juncadella were forced to bounce their way across the grass on the outside of turn one, causing part of Ekstrom's Audi RS5 to flick off his car.[8] Further round the lap and António Félix da Costa suffered a spin, later found to have been the fault of Miguel Molina, causing Timo Scheider and Robert Wickens to take race ending damage.[2][9]

Paul di Resta had been the big victor on the first lap, taking Mortara and Nico Müller, before applying pressure on fellow Merc master Wehrlein for second.[2] A dive down the inside into the hairpin on lap three gave him second, leaving Green in his sights.[2] Unfortunately for the Scot, Green had pushed hard in the opening laps, opening for himself a three second lead, which he soon demonstrated he could keep.[2] A fairly well tempered, if quiet, race unfolded, until the Safety Car made its first appearance of the weekend.

Juncadella, running in a group that included new boy Lucas Auer, ran wide in the stadium section at the end of lap twelve, with gravel trap seemingly sucking his car into the gravel.[8] Earlier damage at the start was a likely culprit, but regardless, the safety car emerged so his car could be removed. Yet, just two laps later, the race went green again, and Green set about getting his lead back to three seconds.[8] It was to be only a lap, however, before the safety car re-emerged.

VIE punt Hoc 2015 I

Christian Vietoris goes for a spin in the first race of the season.

After a four car scramble coming towards the Mercedes Grand Stand, which resulted in Adrien Tambay going for a trip through the gravel (after contact with Maxime Martin, the mid-pack was severely bunched.[8] Coming into the hairpin on lap sixteen, Martin Tomczyk locked his rear brakes, sending him into a slide which he could not recover.[8] Inevitabley, his car slid into Gary Paffett, putting the Brit out of the race, as well as his ART Grand Prix team mate, Auer, whom had nowhere to go as Tomczyk came sliding through.[8]

Another quick safety car period to drag Tomczyk and Paffett's cars out of the way (Auer having limped back to the pits) and the race was on once more.[8] It was stalemate at the front, with Green opening his lead out to a comfortable three seconds again, while di Resta began to struggle with his brakes.[2] Further down the order, Ekstrom was forced to change a tyre after contact with one of his Audi team mates, leaving him to fight back up the order.[2]

With three minutes to go, di Resta's brakes had finally allowed Wehrlein to pass, with the young German pulling the same move the Scot had done to him at the hairpin.[8] Di Resta then set about trying to stop Mortara getting past, while Wehrlein set off after Green.[8] It was not to be his victory, however, as Green comfortably crossed the line having completed 26 laps, Wehrlein taking second and di Resta holding third.[2] Audis filled four of the top six finishers, with the best placed BMW, that of Maxime Martin, down in seventh.[2]

Qualifying (Race Two)Edit

The second race qualification session took place on Sunday morning, with the same 20 minute format as before.[10] The session started off in the wet, but within a few minutes, Paul di Resta proved that the slick had the advantage, with the track quickly drying as the session approached its conclusion.[10] Unfortunately for di Resta, he would end the bout in tenth despite his early bravery, as Audi proved their dominance once again.

Mike Rockenfeller set a time of 1:34.516 in the dying moments of the session, a time that Miguel Molina came within a hair's breadth of beating, although Molina was to serve a penalty after his race one antics.[10] Mattias Ekström would therefore line up in second, while reigning DTM Champion Marco Wittmann pushed his BMW into a net third place.[10] Gary Paffett was the fastest of the Mercedes C-Coupés in eighth, atleast until he and Adrien Tambay were excluded from qualifying for failing to disable their DRS systems.[11] Augusto Farfus also received a penalty (his second of the weekend after a qualifying session), this time demoted five places after his team opened the sealed box containing his wet tyres before the FIA permitted them to do so.[11]

Race TwoEdit

AUE Accident Hoc I 2015

Lucas Auer's race ends before it has even begun.

The second race of the weekend went ahead on Sunday afternoon, with dark clouds gathering around the Hockenheimring, although the race itself would start, at least, in dry conditions.[3] The second race was to be 60 minutes in duration, with all drivers having to make a compulsory pitstop in which all four tyres on the car are changed.[3] There was to be a slight delay to the start of the race, as rookie Lucas Auer ran wide in the stadium section, burying his car in the wall where Daniel Juncadella had crashed out the day before.[12]

ReportEdit

Mattias Ekström led the way into the first corner, using his inside grid slot, and a good start, to grab the lead from fellow Audi RS5 DTM combatant Mike Rockenfeller.[12] Rockenfeller soon fell to Marco Wittmann on the second lap, before the current champion forced his way bast Ekström's lead Audi to take the lead.[12] At the same time, Rockenfeller fell to fourth, with Edoardo Mortara claiming the final podium slot, with DRS becoming active on the following lap.[12]

Robert Wickens was leading the Mercedes challenge in seventh, in a constant battle with the BMW M4 DTM of António Félix da Costa for sixth place.[12] Having forced his way past on lap two, Wickens dropped back behind the Portuguese race on lap four.[12] Meanwhile, Ekström snatched the lead back from Wittmann at the Mercedes Grand Stand, before proceeding to open a small lead to the rest of the field over the following laps.[3]

Miguel Molina was recovering from both a poor start and his grid penalty, taking Wickens on the fifth lap for seventh, while Rockenfeller lost out to Martin Tomczyk in their battle for fourth.[12] Further ahead, Mortara managed to squeeze past Wittmann for second, as the sky darkened and the crowd headed for umbrellas and coats.[12] By lap 11, Adrien Tambay opted to pit for the wet tyre, after Wittmann slid wide on his brakes, allowing team mate Tomczyk past.[12]

Unfortuantely for Tambay, his race was to end a lap later on his second visit to the pits, while the rest of the field flooded in to change tyres over the following three laps.[12] Mortara was the big winner, overtaking Ekström by stopping a lap earlier and hence taking the lead, while Molina had jumped from seventh to third.[12] Maxime Martin was handed a penalty in the pitlane confusion, having been unsafely released by his pitcrew, meaning he would have to drive through and lose a fair amount of time.[12]

Ekström and Mortara duelled for the lead over the following laps, with the Swede emerging victorious on lap 18, with the race ticking past the 30 minute mark.[3] Gary Paffett, meanwhile, started on a charge from outside of the points, taking advantage of contact between Paul di Resta and Nico Müller to leap into the top ten.[12] An aggressive move on Bruno Spengler into turn two handed him sixth, while Müller was handed a drive-through penalty for causing a collision.[12]

Wittmann was next to fall to Paffett's charge, before the Englishman pulled smartly up to the back of Tomczyk's car, an extra incentive to get past being that the German had hit Paffett in race one of the weekend.[12] A brief encounter on lap 28 gave Paffett third, leaving him to catch Mortara in second.[12] Paffett's charge also seemed to inspire his fellow Mercedes drivers, as Wickens and Christian Vietoris forced their way into the top seven.[12]

Paffett got within a second of Mortara on the final lap, as Vietoris and Timo Scheider tangled in their battle for sixth.[12] He could do nothing, however, and Mortara held on to second behind race winner Ekström, with Paffett third.[12] That result handed Mortara the championship lead, with Ekström and Jamie Green (who was left a disappointing thirteenth) tied for second in the standings.[12]
