Fassler scores first DTM win - Oscherleben.

Peter Dumbreck (D2 AMG Mercedes) finished fourth. Marcel Tiemann who substituted for injured Bernd Mayldnder in the Eschmann-Stahl AMG Mercedes drove the 2001 CLK for the first time in Saturday's qualifying and was 15th fastest. In the qualifying race he improved to twelfth place and came home eighth in the main event. His team mate Patrick Huisman ended up ninth. Marcel Tiemann: ''Get well soon, Bernd, I did as good as possible. I enjoyed my return to the DTM.''

Thomas Jager was tenth in the Original-Teile AMG Mercedes, ahead of his team mate Christijan Albers. Darren Turner (Service 24 h AMG Mercedes) was disqualified from 14th place because the tyre marking did not comply with the regulations. His new team mate David Saelens, replacing Pedro Lamy, retired on the penultimate lap after a collision with Opel driver Manuel Reuter.

Mercedes-Benz Motorsport Director Norbert Haug commented: ''Today we saw good sport in front of a great crowd. This was Marcel's masterpiece. It's hard to imagine that there is more pressure than to know Bernd Schneider is right behind you. The lap times of the leading cars were almost identical and the Abt-Audi followed us closely. Marcel Tiemann did a great job as a substitute driver. We hope that Bernd Maylander will be fine and back with us soon. After talking to the FIA Marcel Fassler will drive the Safety Car in the Monaco Grand Prix. A fine reward for his performance this weekend.''
