“I have no words again. It was more difficult than yesterday. I tried to keep Maro in check, luckily it worked. The whole weekend is a dream, the best of my career,” said van der Linde.
Two returnees on the podium
Van der Linde’s victory was never seriously threatened. He remained in the lead after the flying start and retained the lead after the pit stops. He confidently kept his pursuers Engel and Rast (Abt-Audi) in check.
The DTM continues in June and then travels abroad again: From June 17th to 19th, the third race weekend with rounds five and six will be held in Imola.
