Rain, fireworks and all-out partying at Audi: in the final race of the 2019 DTM, the brand with the four rings again gave the competition no chance and crowned its most successful DTM season with a triple triumph in the finale at Hockenheim.

Twelve victories, twelve pole positions, twelve fastest laps, 40 of 54 possible podium finishes: The Audi RS 5 DTM with its new two-liter four-cylinder turbo engine was the measure of all things in the 2019 DTM. In the manufacturers’ championship, Audi scored 1,132 points – more than twice as many as its immediate rival BMW. After René Rast had clinched the drivers’ title as early as in the third from last race at the Nürburgring, Nico Müller, with a victory in the last race, secured the runner-up’s finish in the championship ahead of Marco Wittmann in a BMW. In the teams’ championship, the three Audi Sport teams, Rosberg, Abt Sportsline and Phoenix, took the top three spots.

“Everyone at Audi can be proud of this exceptional season,” said Member of Audi’s Management Board for Development Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler, who accepted the trophy for the manufacturers’ championship at Hockenheim. “This was Vorsprung durch Technik par excellence, but also a fantastic achievement by the entire Audi squad.”
