Audi will continue with the same drivers for the tweaked DTM series in 2015 as it looks to defend its manufacturers' title.

Despite missing out on the drivers' crown to Marco Wittmann, the Ingolstadt firm enjoyed a positive 2014 season nonetheless, clinching the manufacturers' title over BMW and Mercedes by finishing second (Mattias Ekstrom), third (Mike Rockenfeller) and fifth (Edoardo Mortara) overall.

With this in mind, Audi has opted not to alter its driver line-up for 2015, with the aforementioned trio being joined once more by Miguel Molina, Adrien Tambay, Timo Scheider and Nico Muller. No confirmation was given as to whether these drivers will swap teams within the Audi fold.
