Jamie Green leads Audi top-six sweep in Free Practice 2
Audi Sport Team Rosberg’s Jamie Green went quickest in Friday afternoon’s second and final Free Practice session for the DTM at the Lausitzring, leading a top-six sweep for Audi.
Green’s best time of 1:36.000 was enough to keep him out front for most of the 30-minute session at the Brandenburg circuit ahead of a quintet of similar Audi RS 5 DTMs.
The second fastest driver was FP1 pace-setter Loïc Duval, setting an early time that kept him just 0.004 seconds down on Green, while Robin Frijns placed third in his Abt Sportsline entry.
Green’s teammate René Rast was fifth quickest, behind Jonathan Aberdein in the best of Audi Sport Team WRT’s two customer cars.
Marco Wittmann was the best-placed BMW driver, finishing the session seventh in his Team RMG-run BMW M4 DTM and less than four-tenths off the pace. Timo Glock finished eighth, with Bruno Spengler tenth behind WRT’s Pietro Fittipaldi.
All of the Audi and BMWs lapped within nine-tenths of each other back to 14th place, while R-Motorsport’s quartet of Aston Martin Vantage DTMs occupied the bottom four.
Daniel Juncadella was the quickest driver for the Swiss operation, going 0.942 seconds off Green’s pace.
Qualifying for Race 1 will take place at 10:35 CEST on Saturday, with the race following at 13:30.
