Ferdinand Habsburg fastest on second morning at the Nürburgring

Team WRT’s Ferdinand Habsburg clocked the fastest lap time on the second morning of the official DTM test at the Nürburgring.

The customer Audi racer pipped fellow Austrian Philipp Eng driver (BMW) by just ten-thousandths of a second, with Audi Sport driver Jamie Green in third, two-tenths off the pace.

Marco Wittmann was fourth for BMW Motorsport, just six-thousandths ahead of Audi’s Loïc Duval, with team-mate Nico Müller in eight place, four-tenths off the pace.

Robert Kubica continued his learning curve with BMW customer team ART, followed by BMW’s new recruit Lucas Auer, seven-tenths behind Habsburg. WRT’s new driver Fabio Scherer completed the top ten.

It has also emerged that WRT’s third driver and DTM rookie Ed Jones, who currently lives in Dubai, won’t be able to attend the preseason tests due to the travelling restrictions in that country because of the COVID-19 situation.

Testing resumes at 14:00 CEST.
