DTM: Audi and fans fired up for “Lausitz”

#DTMLausitzring: Did you know that …

… Jamie Green at the Lausitzring in 2015 was the only driver to have won both races on the same weekend to date?

… the Briton at the Lausitzring since last year has been holding the DTM lap record of
1m 17.840s in a race?

… Audi at the Lausitzring in 2015 celebrated a 1-2-3-4 and a 1-2-3-4-5 success?

… Nico Müller will be tackling his 50th DTM race on Sunday?

… the Lausitzring is one of three DTM race tracks driven counter-clockwise?

… the DTM’s premiere at the Lausitzring in 2000 fell through because both races had to be cancelled due to heavy rain?

… at the Lausitzring in 2003 “Turn 1” of the tri-oval was driven in qualifying, but the tires used at the time were not designed for the extreme loads acting on them in this banked turn?

… Mattias Ekström at the Lausitzring in August 2001 clinched the first podium result in his DTM career?

… Ekström to date has contested 19 DTM races at “Lausitz” that saw him on podium ten times and winning twice (2004 and 2005)?

… Ekström inherited victory in 2004 because Gary Paffett was retroactively disqualified and Ekström, while heading for his second Lausitzring victory in 2005, fought a fascinating duel with the Briton over the entire race distance?

… flattening of the rear wing angle using the DRS at the end of the start-finish straight provides an advantage of about 5 km/h, as a result of which the RS 5 DTM achieves a top speed of about 260 km/h at the Lausitzring?
