Rockenfeller claims pole position at Brands Hatch
Great joy for Mike Rockenfeller (Audi): in qualifying for the seventh DTM season round, the German claims his maiden pole position in the most popular international touring car series. With a lap time of 42.090 seconds in the fourth qualifying heat, the Audi driver was 0.198 seconds faster than Gary Paffett (Mercedes-Benz). The Brit will be starting from second place on the front row alongside Rockenfeller into his home race. For the race on Sunday, Martin Tomczyk (Audi) and Jamie Green (Mercedes-Benz) will be starting from the second row of the grid. Points’ leader Bruno Spengler (Mercedes-Benz) ended up sixth in qualifying behind Mattias Ekström (Audi). However, the Franco-Canadian will be docked two places on the starting grid after having used an unmarked tire in free practice.
