The 28-year-old from Salzburg, who started only from the 18th, had surprisingly led to a ten minutes before the end of the race after a turbulent race. The victory eventually went to pole-man Paul di Resta. The Scottish Mercedes driver now has only one point left for the overall lead.
For the Tiroler Lucas Auer, the DTM night premiere with several safety car phases was completed halfway through the race. The 23-year-old came in the course of a collision with the kiss and stayed with his Mercedes. Also championship leader Gary Paffett had to park his Mercedes early with a steering error.
