the Thuner racing driver Nico Müller (27) can forget his first DTM title. On Sunday, he was 0.2 seconds behind the Audi-mate and overall leader René Rast (33) in the second race at Brands Hatch in Second place.

So the Swiss six DTM races back before the end 169:206 points. Although he was clearly faster than Pole-man grid, had to Müller left to the Germans the victory. Audi had placed the Bernese already at the pit is a rotten Egg stop, as he waited in the car five seconds more on the tire Service as a grid.

Müller remained outside the fair: “of course That was bad luck. So I had to strain to catch-up my rubber more than normal. And an attack on the grid would thus become a Hara-Kiri action.” Even if it was ten laps from the end, only 0.4 seconds behind Rast!

But suddenly, Müller allowed himself to fall back… On Sat 1 Ex-champion and TV expert, Timo Scheider (40) said: “Nico was given the command of what he must do!” And later: “Müller has not won because he was allowed to. That is not correct!”

Clear words, while the other Sat-1 Reporter did not dare to judge the clear Situation on the track. Also Audi was pressed after the word stable order.

In addition, Audi has just with this word is not a Problem. And in the DTM overall winner Scheider (2008, 2009) anyway… back memories of Spielberg 2015. The former Audi Star Scheider heard on the radio suddenly: “Timo, push him out!” Was meant to be the one in front of Pascal Wehrlein in the Mercedes. And already it crashed. Command is executed. Audi cashed in 200’000 Euro buses. Scheider got Rennsperren and boss Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich was going on the Job.

BMW only pus

On Saturday outside the former DTM champion Marco Wittmann (29) had with the BMW victory in the first race of Brands Hatch (in front of grid and Müller) again into the title conversation brought.

But on Sunday, Wittmann against the Audi was Superiority (all of the eight cars in the first four rows!) powerless, stood out with two tire stops, and was just a tenth (of a point). Now with 147 counters, he is allowed to make in the last six races at the lausitzring, the Nürburgring and the Finale in Hockenheim, hardly any title hopes.

And Müller know now, to whom Audi sets!

Total as of 6 races before the end

1. Grid 206 points
2. Müller 169 points
3. Wittmann (De, BMW) 147 points
