Audi is currently ranking at the top of the standings in all three DTM classifications. In the rounds at Moscow Raceway this weekend, the brand is primarily aiming to extend this advantage. Audi, BMW and Mercedes have each decided the previous six DTM races near the Russian capital in their favor on two occasions.
Mattias Ekstrom is traveling to Russia as the leader of the DTM drivers' classification. For the first time since summer 2015, the Swede is leading the DTM standings again. After having won the FIA World Rallycross Championship last year, the Audi campaigner continues to have good chances of winning his third DTM title this season. "The best are still close together and there are no clear favorites yet,” says the 2004 and 2007 DTM Champion. "From now on, the circle of candidates for the title will be getting smaller with each race and I'm hoping to be part of it up until the end.”
