Spengler pleased with second win.

A delighted Bruno Spengler was able to celebrate his second DTM win in as many races after claiming victory in difficult conditions at the Nurburgring.

The Canadian, who claimed his maiden series win at the Norisring, domintaed proceedings in his DaimlerChrysler Bank AMG-Mercedes C-Class by securing pole position and then leading from start to finish for a victory that allowed him to move up to second in the championship standings behind Bernd Schneider.

“After my win at the Norisring I was on cloud number seven, and I am even higher up after my win of today,” he said afterwards. “It was a difficult race, in particular at the beginning when it rained. My car was just great, both in the wet and in the dry. The strategy was perfect, I changed from rain tyres to slicks exactly at the right moment.”

Second place for Schneider means the gap between the two sits at twelve points, with both drivers drawing praise from Mercedes motorsport boss Norbert Haug.

“Congratulations and well done to Bruno Spengler who drove a great race in most difficult conditions and was always faster than the rest,” he said. “Congratulations also to Bernd Schneider, he is the only driver to finish in the points in all six races so far and has extended his championship lead from eight to twelve points.

“Jean Alesi was again the well-known fighter and moved up from 15th to fourth position. This demonstrates the competitiveness of the DTM, which was also proved by the fastest lap times. However, the championship is not decided yet and the next races will be tough for us, also because of the new weight handicap.”
