The championship battle has reached a crucial junction and a poor weekend for any of the title protagonists can seriously jeopardise their hopes going to the Hockenheim title decider last month.

BMW's Marco Wittmann knows it all from last year, when a mistake in determining Balance of Performance dropped him from second in the championship to a mere outside contender for the title.

This year it is his BMW stablemate Sheldon van der Linde who is leading the standings, his points tally boosted by a second-place finish at Spa-Francorchamps earlier this month.

The South African sits pretty at the top of the table on 130 points, with Mercedes' Lucas Auer his closest challenger on 98 points and Audi ace Rene Rast just behind on 96. Lamborghini star Mirko Bortolotti has had a torrid time since the season resumed at the Nurburgring in August and has tumbled to fourth in the championship, 36 points off van der Linde.

Last year, Liam Lawson scored an unprecedented double win on Red Bull's home turf, which should boost the AF Corse squad's hopes for this weekend. Although neither Felipe Fraga nor Nick Cassidy are in the title hunt, both have proved to be rapid in the Ferrari 488 GT3 - with the latter picking up his first win only a fortnight ago in Belgium.
