BMW's Spengler was given a five place grid penalty due to use of wrong tyres during qualifying

DTM champion Bruno Spengler has lost his pole position for Sunday’s eighth season round at Oschersleben.

The reason given was because the BMW driver had used a tyre that was only admitted for the fourth heat during the third qualifying heat already, the stewards of the meeting dropped him five places on the grid.

While Spengler will be starting from sixth place into the race on Sunday at 13.30 hrs, Audi driver Jamie Green moves up into first place.

For the Brit, it is his first pole since his transfer to Audi at the start of the 2013 season and his seventh in the DTM. Points’ leader Mike Rockenfeller also benefited from Spengler’s grid penalty. The Audi driver moved up from fourth to third place on the grid.
