Miguel Molina has clinched Audi's first DTM pole position since the Moscow Raceway after an impressive lap puts the Spaniard 0.2's clear of BMW's Tom Blomqvist in second at the Nurburgring.

The Team Abt driver - who started yesterday's first race from tenth position - was in a class of his own around the former Grand Prix venue and went almost 0.2's faster than Lucas Auer's pole time from yesterday with a 1 minute 21.732 effort.

In a reversal of fortunes, Auer was unable to match his performance from yesterday and set a time almost 0.4's slower than his previous best, good enough only for 15th.
