Audi's Timo Scheider says he's looking forward to making a return to the DTM fray this weekend at Oschersleben after missing the Russian round of the series due to his one round ban.

The Team Phoenix driver was given a one round suspension for his part in the now infamous 'push him out' saga while Audi boss Dr Wolfgang Ullrich has been denied pit-lane access for the remainder of the DTM season after issuing the radio call to Scheider.

Scheider has since slumped to 20th in the point's standings but makes his comeback at a happy hunting ground. The former double champion took back-to-back victories at Oschersleben during both of his championship winning year's back in '08 and '09.

The 36-year old - who is also set to make his World Rallycross debut aboard a Munnich Motorsport prepared Audi S3 this month - has been buoyed by his team mate Mike Rockenfeller's pole position and victory last time out at Moscow.

"I'm looking forward to my comeback in the DTM," said Scheider.

"Obviously, I've got no chance of winning the championship anymore, but my goal remains unchanged: winning races. My team-mate Mike Rockenfeller showed at Moscow that this is possible with a Phoenix Audi - and, actually, we've always been on a similar level so far this season."
