Team Rosberg's Jamie Green has secured his second successive DTM pole position at the Red Bull Ring after narrowly getting the better of his Audi team mate Rene Rast.

The Audi RS 5 driver produced a near identical lap to the one that took him to pole position in yesterday's qualifying session after setting a 1 minute 21.955s lap around the Spielberg circuit.

Green's Audi stablemate Rast had led the times following the first set of runs but the Brit managed to usurp his rival by 0.055s during his final flier as the chequered flag fell.

Reigning champion Marco Wittmann completed the top-three order in his Team RMG prepared BMW M4 ahead of Audi duo Mike Rockenfeller and Nico Muller in fourth and fifth.

Having endured a difficult qualifying run in yesterday's session, Gary Paffett ended today's shootout in a far more favourable position after setting the sixth quickest time as the fastest Mercedes runner on the third row of the grid.

Timo Glock was the next best placed BMW in seventh ahead of championship leader Mattias Ekstrom, who struggled further down the top-ten order in eighth.

Ekstrom has an 18-point championship lead to protect, with his main title rival Green qualifying the second race on pole position.

BMW duo Tom Blomqvist and Bruno Spengler complete the top-ten on the fifth row of the grid in ninth and tenth position.
