Miguel Molina and Edoardo Mortara swap teams for 2016

Audi Sport confirmed today a further change to their driver line up for the 2016 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season. Miguel Molina and Edoardo Mortara will exchange teams from Abt to Abt Sportsline.

The Ingolstadt manufacturer had already confirmed the continuity of their driver line up for the third season in a row, with Adrien Tambay and Nico Müller swapping positions between Team Rosbert and Team Abt.
