Mercedes' Pascal Wehrlein has stopped BMW from dominating the Oschersleben DTM test by setting the pace on the final day of pre-season running.

Despite Wehrlein's 1 minute 19.952 second lap topping the timesheets, it was BMW who once again dominated the business end of the table after no-less than four M4 machines occupied the top-six positions, the first of which coming from defending champion Marco Wittmann in second.

Wittmann was joined by Augusto Farfus and Antonio Felix da Costa in a top-four which could only be separated by eight-hundredths of a second.

2010 DTM champion Paul di Resta managed to temporarily stop the BMW onslaught ahead of Bruno Spengler, who was just five-thousandths of-a-second shy of the C-Coupe's effort.

Behind the Canadian came a five-strong Audi train led by Frenchman Adrien Tambay aboard his Abt-run RS5. Tambay himself was only three-tenths away from Wehrlein's front-running pace as the gaps began to widen further down the order.

Audi had dominated the previous DTM test at Portugal's Estoril circuit but have endured a quieter run of proceedings this time round at the calendar event venue.

Team Rosberg's Jamie Green followed by Miguel Molina and Mike Rockenfeller completed the final pre-season top-ten while Team Abt's Edoardo Mortara also managed to gain more seat time during the afternoon session in eleventh.
