Hockenheim DTM: Start time, how to watch and more

The DTM travels to Hockenheim this weekend for the penultimate round of the season. Find out where to watch it and how.

The title battle took a major turn last fortnight at Assen, with Red Bull protege Liam Lawson taking the lead in the championship following another disappointing weekend for Abt Audi's Kelvin van der Linde.

The 19-year-old holds a 10-point lead over the Walkenhorst BMW of two-time champion Marco Wittmann heading into the final two rounds of the season, with van der Linde now third in the rankings and a further five points adrift of his rival.

Mercedes driver Maximilian Gotz also remains in contention for the title, having scored 155 points to Lawson's 175.

Hockenheim should provide a more level-playing field after the last two circuits - especially the Red Bull Ring - highlighted the weaknesses of the Audi R8 LMS GT3. 

Twenty drivers will be present on the grid, with HRT expanding to a third Mercedes for team owner Hubert Haupt.
