DTM: Strong four days of official DTM testing for Audi at the Hungaroring

What can we expect from Audi in its Hungaroring Test?


By Johan Laubscher


The DTM hosted the official ITR test days at the Hungaroring in Budapest this week. It was a four day test which began on Monday and came to a close on Thursday. All three of the DTM manufactures were present for testing.


Audi Sport arrived with four new 2014 Audi RS 5 DTM cars and all eight of its drivers. The four cars each came from the four (three) entered teams: Audi Sport Team Phoenix, Audi Sport Team Rosberg, Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline and Audi Sport Team Abt (latter two teams both run by ABT Sportsline).

The liveries of the four cars were also revealed at the tests, the cars of Mattias Ekström, Timo Scheider, Miguel Molina and Jamie Green. The Audi Sport drivers alternated in their team cars during the four days of testing.

Monday kicked off well for the Audi squad, as the day ended with the four Audi RS 5 DTM cars topping the time sheets, a 1-2-3-4 lead by Miguel Molina. Tuesday again saw Audi on top, this time with new Audi DTM rookie, Nico Müller, ahead of Mattias Ekström. Wednesday saw Mercedes Benz’s Christian Vietoris setting the best time, with the fastest Audi driver being Adrien Tambay in sixth. The four days of testing concluded on Thursday. Christian Vietoris was the fastest driver on Thursday. Edoardo Mortara was the fastest on on the final day, fourth.

Nico Müller set the fastest Audi time at the Hungaroring this week, his 1:37.505 from Tuesday afternoon. The Audi Sport squad totaled 7154 km of testing with 1633 laps competed during the four days of testing. Official DTM testing will resume at Hockenheim from 14-17 April.

The 2014 DTM season will be kicking off with the first round at Hockenheim on 4 May.
