DTM testing: Marco Wittmann fastest at Hockenheim for BMW

Marco Wittmann, DTM testing 2014Marco Wittmann topped the first day of the final DTM pre-season test at Hockenheim on Monday.

The RMG BMW driver topped both of the day's sessions, setting a best of 1m33.769s in the morning, before improving to a 1m33.084s in the afternoon.

Mattias Ekstrom finished the day second fastest with a 1m33.316s best, completing the most laps of any driver with 141 over the course of the day.

The two-time champion was followed on the timesheets by fellow Audi drivers Timo Scheider, Edoardo Mortara and Nico Muller.

Joey Hand was sixth fastest for BMW, while the best Mercedes runner of the day was Daniel Juncadella, who was seventh, and more than 1.1 seconds off the pace, in the Mucke Motorsport entry.

Ex-Formula 1 driver Paul di Resta completed the most laps in the morning session in his Mercedes, but his best time from that session was only good enough to leave him 10th in the 11-car field.

This week's test runs for four days, finishing on Thursday.
