Adrien Tambay was fastest Audi driver in sixth position for Abt Sportsline ahead of Nico Müller, who was fastest yesterday, and the Frenchman was happy with his first experience of Hungaroring with DTM.
“I think that the Hungaroring is an excellent track for the DTM and we’ll be able to give the fans here a fantastic show. It was great to see just how many spectators were here during the test days – I was pleasantly surprised. I’m already looking forward to the race on June 1, especially as I was quick out of the box. The new Audi RS 5 DTM functions very well. Although we didn’t drive as much today as we did on the first day, we were once again able to complete several long runs and learn a huge amount as well. Overall it was a positive test. We have something to build on,” said Tambay.
Testing continues tomorrow for the fourth and final day.
