Mercedes HWA drivers Jamie Green and Ralf Schumacher won the team battle of the DTM Munich Olympic Stadium event. The duo beat ABT Audi drivers Timo Scheider and Adrien Tambay in the finals.
“Of course, I am happy with our first place. This was a perfect day for me. I could get used to this,” said Schumacher.
The driver pairs were decided through the morning practice laps where the four fastest drivers from each manufacturer went on.
Green and Schumacher started by beating Miguel Molina and Mattias Ekström, then team mates Gary Paffett and Christian Vietoris, before going on to the final. Best BMW duo were Joey Hand and Dirk Werner, losing out to Scheider and Tambay in the semi final.
The Munich event, which does not give points to the championship, continues tomorrow with all DTM drivers going head-to-head.
