Team Abt's Edoardo Mortara leads a dominant Audi front-four lockout during the final practice session ahead of qualifying for the second Austrian DTM race at the Red Bull Ring.

All told, seven Audi's completed the top-ten order with Mortara proving to be the fastest of the RS 5 contingent ahead of Jamie Green, Timo Scheider and Mike Rockenfeller - completing a crushing top-four whitewash.

The widely renowned Spielberg supremo shadowed the race winning BMWs in yesterday's opening race to continue his Austrian podium streak in third.

Championship leader Paul di Resta was the fastest non-Audi runner in fifth for Mercedes ahead of fellow Brit Tom Blomqvist.

Seventh place for Di Resta in yesterday's first managed to preserve the Mercedes driver's title lead, albeit to the reduced margin of three points ahead of Mortara.

Mattias Ekstrom, Adrien Tambay and Nico Muller occupied positions seven, eight and nine for Audi while Esteban Ocon set the tenth quickest time aboard his Mercedes C63.
