Having qualified third, he was optimistic of being able to achieve a podium finish.

Paffett now sits fourth in the championship standings with 47 points, just 22 points away from first.

- Paffett is in his 10th DTM season with Mercedes-Benz.

- In 2005, Paffett won the DTM Championship and has been runner-up three times since.

- DTM will be making its debut at Moscow Raceway this weekend.
