2015 DTM : Molina celebrates first DTM victory

2015 DTM Nürburgring Race 2 winner : 
Miguel Molina (ESP) #17 - Teufel Audi RS 5 DTM - Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline

Fans at the Nürburgring, where 69,000 spectators attended the event over the weekend, were treated to exceptionally good touring car racing: with entertaining position fights and closely-fought door-to-door duels, there were entertaining battles for the best positions and valuable points for the drivers’ standings in the 16th DTM race of the season. Miguel Molina only had little to do with all that: with a faultless drive, the Audi driver had his name written on the winners’ list at the Nürburgring and also scored his first major achievement in his 67th DTM race. Having started from pole position, the Spaniard scored a dominant and undisputed win in the 43 laps long DTM race on Sunday. “I have been waiting for a long time for my maiden win and now, we finally made it. Today is my day,” the jubilant winner said after the finish. Mercedes-Benz driver Paul Di Resta finished second in the Eifel, 7.5 seconds down. For the 2010 DTM champion, this was his best result of the season so far. BMW’s Bruno Spengler rounded out the Nürburgring podium by finishing third.
