Frank Diefenbacher was disqualified after the race for an overtaking manoeuvre under yellow flags. Diefenbacher lost his points and his Japanese team mate Toshihiro Kaneishi was announced as champion. The stewards handed the championship back to Diefenbacher little later, after his Opel Team BSR had appealed against the disqualification.

Now the final decision will be made by the appeal court of the German motor sport government (DMSB).
