Ekström and Mortara on the final podium

In the finale at Hockenheim, in front of 135,000 spectators, Audi won the two last races of the DTM season and on Sunday repeated last year’s one-two-three victory. Mattias Ekström and Edorardo Mortara celebrated together on the podium.

18 races, ten victories, 21 podiums, ten fastest race laps and eight pole positions: The Audi RS 5 DTM was the strongest car in the 2015 DTM season. Still, in the end, this tally was only enough for the brand with the four rings to take second, third and fourth place in the drivers’ classification, second place among the manufacturers, and third place in the teams’ classification. Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline ended up as best Audi squad.

With Jamie Green winning on Sunday, Mattias Ekström and Edoardo Mortara perfected Audi’s one-two-three result in the finale. Ekström dropped to fourth place at the start, but on the first few laps snatched the BMW of Maxime Martin and the Mercedes of Gary Paffett. In second place, the Swede secured third place in the drivers’ classification. Edoardo Mortara battled his way forward from position 13 on the grid to third place. Unlike most of the other drivers, the Italian pitted late to change tires – exactly the right strategy for him.
