The quickest on Tuesday was Filipe Albuquerque in the Audi A5 DTM. The Portuguese set the fastest lap time of the day (1:33.318 min) in the morning session. His fellow Audi driver Miguel Molina secured the second position on the time sheets, 0.132 seconds behind Albuquerque.

Mercedes-Benz ace Gary Paffett who had been the quickest on Monday, with his new AMG Mercedes C-Coupe, came third. In addition, the Briton also covered the highest mileage on the 4.567-kilometre track by completing a total of 101 laps. Behind Paffett, the two DTM rookies Robert Wickens and Roberto Merhi (both Mercedes-Benz) finished fourth and fifth respectively. Meanwhile, Dirk Werner took the new BMW M3 DTM to sixth position, on the second day of testing at Hockenheim.

While BMW and Mercedes-Benz contested day two with the same driver line-up as day one, the Audi camp was represented by four additional drivers: the aforementioned Albuquerque and Molina as well as two-time DTM Champion Mattias Ekstrom (2004 and 2007) and Switzerland’s Rahel Frey.

The tests will be continued on Wednesday and Thursday with morning sessions from 09:00 to 12:00hrs and afternoon sessions from 14:00 to 18:00hrs.

DTM enthusiasts can witness all the Hockenheim test action as the grandstand ‘Sud H’ is opened throughout the tests. Tickets are available for €6 and include a ticket for the ‘Motor-Sport-Museum’ at the Hockenheimring. The DTM season kick-off on 29th April also will be held at the Hockenheimring. Tickets are available here.
