Team Rosberg's Jamie Green has stormed to an emphatic DTM pole position at the Lausitzring, producing a lap over five-tenths quicker than Audi team mate Mattias Ekstrom in second.

The British driver seamlessly kicked on from his race one triumph in yesterday's encounter to produce a crushing qualifying performance ahead of this afternoon's 'main race'.

Green's 1 minute 17.386 lap easily demolished the provisional pole position lap, which at the time was held by Team Phoenix's Timo Scheider.
