 The Lausitzring 2015 will be the second race weekend of the 2015 DTM Season, when the DTM visits on the weekend of the 29th to the 31st of May.[1] The Saturday race is scheduled to be held in the evening, with the Sunday race held in the early afternoon.[1]

BackgroundEdit

Edoardo Mortara comes to the EuroSpeedway at Lausitz at the head of the Drivers' Championship, despite not winning either race outright at the DTM Festival. Mattias Ekström and Jamie Green (winners in Hockenheim) sit in joint second in the Championship, with defending Champion Marco Wittmann in ninth. Maximilian Götz finished best of the rookies in Hockenheim, as none of them scored a point during their debut weekend.

Team Rosbeg lead the way in the Teams' Championship by three points, with Green and Nico Müller's combined tally beating the second Abt Sportsline team. Audi's dominance of the Hockenheim weekend sees them in the lead of the Brands' Championship by almost 50 points, with Mercedes, led by the two HWA teams, in second.

Qualifying (Race One)Edit

Qualifying for race one seemed to be under threat from rain, with most of the drivers opting to take to the track immediately hoping to set a banker lap.[2] Edoardo Mortara emerged at the top after the first bout, but, with the rain failing to materialise, he fell down the order in the final minutes, unable to best his earlier time.[2] Pascal Wehrlein was the only man to do something different, emerging for his only run in the session as the rest flooded in after their first runs.[2]

In the end, 22 of the 24 drivers ended the session within a second of Miguel Molina's time, which earned the Spaniard pole position for the fourth time.[2] Jamie Green shared the front row with Molina come the end of the session, with Mortara down to third, and Mattias Ekström using a last gasp effort to snatch fourth.[2] Wehrlein's unusual approach saw him take fifth, with Adrien Tambay relegated to the back of the grid (and not setting a competitive time) for engine repairs.[2]

During the session, Marco Wittmann and Augusto Farfus were placed under investigation for reportedly blocking other drivers unfairly.[3] After the session, both were handed five place penalties, which meant Wittmann would have to start from eleventh, while Farfus dropped to the back row.[3]

Race OneEdit

The first race of the weekend was the shorter 40 minute format, with no stops.[4] The race was also the first race to be held in the evening after the new DTM format was announced, with the race starting at around 7:00pm local time.[4]

ReportEdit

Miguel Molina made the best start off the line, lauching ahead of Jamie Green whom was almost overhauled by his Audi allies.[4] Edoardo Mortara and Mattias Ekström pulled in behind to form an all Audi top four, as Maxime Martin leapt into fifth with a dubious move around the outside of the first corner, before bouncing back onto the circuit on the inside of turn two.[4] Robert Wickens was the best placed Mercedes in sixth, as all the drivers survived the first lap.[4]

There was action all through the field in the opening laps, as Martin tried to keep up with the four Audis at the front.[4] Further back, and Augusto Farfus was eliminated from the race after heavy contact with Paul di Resta, although neither the Brazilian or the Scot were found to be a fault.[4] DRS was enabled on lap four, with Molina begining to pull a gap after it emerged that DRS was not working on Green's car.[4]

Pascal Wehrlein was the man on the charge as the first ten minutes passed, making his way onto the back of Wickens, quickly making his way past the Canadian.[4] Further down, Nico Müller and António Félix da Costa came together, with the Swiss driver sent into a spin, although da Costa went on without damage.[4] Tom Blomqvist, meanwhile, tumbled out of the top ten after running off the track at turn eleven, esacaping from the gravel an rejoining.[4]

Daniel Juncadella and Marco Wittmann were to be found battling as the race iticked into its final minutes, although a late lunge into turn one by the Spaniard was easily beaten by Wittmann.[4] Wherlein, meanwhile, had clawed his way onto the back of Martin, prompting the Audis at the head of the field to respond.[4] Green was the first, using his superior speed to force his way past Molina, catching the leader unawares into the first corner.[4]

It was a case of deja vu for Molina over the following laps, as Mortara and Ekstrom used the same technique to get past into the first corner.[4] A three way scrap for fourth emerged, although Molina's stubborn defence meant that Martin fell to the charging Wehrlein.[4] Green, meanwhile, pulled smartly ahead, establising a four second lead before taking his second win of the season.[4] Mortara and Ekstrom completed the podium, with Molina successful in defending from Wehrlein (best of the Mercs). Wickens followed his Mercedes team mate over the line, having taken Martin (best of the BMWs) in the closing stages.[4]

Qualifying (Race Two)Edit

Miguel Molina topped the times early on, but lost out on pole in the final moments, as Jamie Green produced a stunning lap to go more than half a second faster than anyone else.[5] Mattias Ekström swung his Audi into second, with another double champion, Timo Scheider to be found in third.[5] Molina dropped to fourth, beating Maxime Martin, one of only two BMWs in the top ten, amid a sea of Bavarian boys.[5]

Augusto Farfus sat in seventh, ahead of the second Team Rosberg car of Nico Müller, with Mike Rockenfeller in ninth meaning there were seven Audis in the top ten.[5] It was a desperate situation for Mercedes, however, at a track they usually dominate, with Daniel Juncadella their best placed car in tenth.[5] HWA were also struggling, with the main Mercedes factory car of Pascal Wehrlein to be found down in fourteenth, although Christian Vietoris and Robert Wickens were in close attendance.[5]

Other strugglers in the field were to be found further down, with Champion Marco Wittmann down in seventeenth, although it must be said that 23 of the 24 cars were seperated, overall, by less than a second.[5] If Green's time was factored out, then a little over half a second covered second to 23rd, with Maximilian Götz not setting a time at all.[5]

Race TwoEdit

A dry Sunday greeted the DTM field for the hour long DTM race of the weekend, with a cumpulsory pitstop to be taken at any time during the race.[6] With no changes to the grid, the formation lap started at 14:20 local time to signal the start of the race.[6]

ReportEdit

Mattias Ekström stole the lead from Jamie Green off the line, as the field all survived the first corner again, with Maxime Martin trying another ambitous move around the outside to gain places.[6] Marco Wittmann went very wide and into the gravel, tumbling down to the back of the field, with Robert Wickens under investigation for causing it.[6] Meanwhile, Ekstrom steadily built a lead at the front, although remained within a second of Green as Tom Blomqvist retired before the end of lap three.[6]

DRS became active on lap four, while Gary Paffett came into the pits to retire, with Green now able to get onto the back of Ekstrom.[6] Green tried a dive down the inside of Ekstrom into turn one on lap seven, taking the lead briefly, as the Swede managed to return the favour by cutting back inside the Brit into the next corner.[6] A lap later, however, Green tried the same move, and was successful in holding the position.[6]

Lap fourteen saw the first cars take their mandatory pitstop, with Miguel Molina leading the charge.[6] The next seven laps saw the majority of the field pit, with the order remaining the same, although Timo Scheider was in a position to challenge Molina after.[6] Pascal Wehrlein's recovery from a poor start saw him locked in battle with António Félix da Costa over seventeenth, with the Mercedes F1 reserve driver put under investigation for causing a collision with the Formula-e driver.[6]

Augusto Farfus brought his car into the pits to retire after heavy contact with Maximilian Götz, who also came into the pits, although his was for his mandatory stop.[6] Wehrlein was cleared of causing a colision with da Costa, and, after taking advantage of Farfus' dramas, took Timo Glock for fourteenth.[6] Wickens ran wide after locking up into the first corner, before Lucas Auer ran too wide and spun in the gravel, beaching himself.[6]

The safety car was out for around five laps, destroying Green's lead, but the Brit was quick to re-establish it after the restart, with a little over five minutes to go.[6] Adrien Tambay was sent off the track by Bruno Spengler after contact, with the Canadian handed a time penatly for causing the incident, with Tambay out of the race.[6] But, no one could stop Green at the front of the field, as he became the first driver since Laurent Aïello to take two victories in a DTM weekend.[6]

Ekstrom took second to match Edoardo Mortara's tally of 58 (as the Italian finished in fifth), with Scheider unable to find his way past Molina for third.[6] Martin became the best placed BMW after Spengler's relegation, although his eighth place meant he finished behind Daniel Juncadella, whom just missed out on fifth in a last lap battle with Mortara.[6] Mike Rockenfeller completed the point scorers.

MilestonesEdit

StandingsEdit

Jamie Greenleft the Lausitzring at the summit of the Championship, and having won three of the four opening races, was one of the favourites for the Championship. Mattias Ekström and Edoardo Mortara were the only drivers within a race victory of him, and ensured that Audi were in a dominant position for the Brands Championship. Miguel Molina made it four Audis in the top five, with Pascal Wehrlein the interloper in fourth for Mercedes-Benz.

Green's superb start also meant that Team Rosberg led the Teams Championship, ahead of the first of the Abt Sportsline entries on wins. The second Abt pairing ensured an all Audi top three, with the second HWA pair of Wehrlein and Christian Vietoris in fourth. It had not been a good start for BMW, however, as they trailed in all three Championships, with BMW Team RMG their best outfit in sixth.
