Tomczyk: It was quite an easy race.

Martin Tomczyk admits his victory in the eighth round of the DTM at the Nurburgring felt like an 'easy' one, as he moves well into contention for the title with only two rounds remaining.

Having qualified on pole position, Tomczyk got away well at the start and simply pulled away from the opposition, adopting a conservative pit strategy that eventually left him with a seven-second lead over Bruno Spengler at the chequered flag to score his second straight win of the season.

With team-mate and championship leader finishing third, Tomczyk has closed to within five points of his rival as it looks increasingly likely that the title fight will come down to the two Audi drivers. Furthermore, Tomczyk now heads to Barcelona where he scored his first ever DTM win last season.

"From the beginning all the way to the end I had an absolutely perfect car. If you're never caught up in a fight and find that you've got about a seven-second lead over the runner-up you can control the race and take things a little easier. It was a wonderful race and - quite frankly - an easy one as well."
