NEXT RACE:
DTM: Mike Rockenfeller in tenth place
18.06.2017
The unluckiest driver of the second day at Budapest was Mike Rockenfeller. Shortly before the start of the race, leakage was detected on a brake line of his Audi RS 5 DTM, forcing Rockenfeller to start from the rear of the field instead of from grid position five.

With a lightning start, early pit stop and fast lap times, Rockenfeller managed to battle his way forward from 18th to tenth place and score a point for Audi Sport Team Phoenix. His teammate Loïc Duval was brushed by BMW driver Tom Blomqvist and dropped to position 16 as a result of the subsequent spin.

Ernst Moser: “On Sunday, we weren’t able to score a lot on the whole. Loïc was unfortunate again with a collision on the final laps. ‘Rocky’ would again have started the race from position five but, due to a leaking brake line, had to start all the way from the rear. He delivered another fantastic comeback and, without traffic, could have ended up even more forwards. Still, with a 16-point deficit, he continues to be in contention for the title.”
