Lausitzring DTM: Lucas Auer on race two pole for Mucke Mercedes

Lucas Auer will start Sunday's second DTM race at the Lausitzring from pole, but a penalty for Christian Vietories denied Mucke Mercedes a front row sweep

Austrian Auer was one of a number of drivers to improve in a frenetic end to the 20-minute session and, after initially going sixth-quickest, set a fastest time of 1m16.861s to secure his second pole in the series.

Vietoris jumped up to second to complete a one-two for the Mucke team in the final minute, setting a time just 0.070 seconds slower than his team-mate had managed, although he was later penalised for blocking and dropped to seventh on the grid.

BMW Team RMG driver Timo Glock prevented a Mercedes 1-2-3 and was only marginally slower in third, as his improvement displaced Robert Wickens.

Mike Rockenfeller was the best-place Audi driver in fifth, ahead of the fourth Mercedes of Gary Paffett.

Saturday race runner-up Jamie Green was seventh, just ahead of new championship leader Marco Wittmann.

Mattias Ekstrom and Tom Blomqvist completed the top 10, while Saturday race winner Miguel Molina was 14th.
