Miguel Molina (Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline) will start from the pole position.

Vitaly Petrov, Mercedes AMG: «When you have any updates, all are expecting immediate improvements of your results. But those who have closely understand DTM, understand that it's much more difficult and we need more time for adaptation, need more time to get the setup right and we still have some things to work on. Perhaps we expected too much from the car this weekend. The balance is still not good enough despite the update. The new car is an improvement generally, but it's not easy to set up the car with so little time. It's not the end of the world for me, though. The race is tomorrow. And tomorrow is another day.
