Racing on the specially designed Olympic Stadium course, the young Dutchman beat many big names until confusion during a pit-stop threw him out of contention. He went on to record a superb third place, the first time he has climbed onto the DTM podium.

"What a great event this is," van der Zande said afterwards. "And it was not at all bad. In the knock-out battles I beat men like Gary Paffett and David Coulthard and I made it into the top four. In the pre-final I had three runs against Bruno Spengler. I won the first round, the second round went to him, then in the third round I had a pit-stop and I was called into the wrong box by my engineer. But, this can happen because with all of these curves it’s very confusing."

"Today, the Audi and Mercedes drivers fight together. I can't wait! Bring it on!"
