BMW's Augusto Farfus says qualifying fourth for tomorrow's DTM Hockenheim finale feels like a pole-position in itself following the M4's universal struggles on Saturday.

BMW endured qualifying at the Hockenheimring as only one M4 machine - in the shape of Farfus - made Q3 as Audi dominated proceedings with six of its RS5 to make the top eight.

Contrary to the rest of BMW's form, Farfus managed to excel in qualifying after making a bold set up change from the morning's free-practice running, where the Brazilian didn't really set the world alight.

Farfus - who has only finished in the top three once so far this season - now believes a podium during tomorrow's final round could be within his sights as BMW look to close the manufacturer's battle ahead of Audi.

The Brazilian currently sits eleventh in the overall standings but could quite easily break into the top ten tomorrow should the RBM driver replicate his form from today.

"Looking at the performance of Audi I think P4 feels like a pole position. Tomorrow a lot can happen in the race," said Farfus.

"The team did an awesome job between free practice and qualifying. We made a huge change to the car and I have to thank them because they were brave, but in the end it paid off. I think we could have a great race and be on the podium."
