Spengler On Pole Again At Zandvoort

1 Mins read

Bruno Spengler secured his second pole position from as many DTM races in 2011, following up his pole and race win at Hockenheim with the top spot in qualifying at Zandvoort in the Netherlands.

The Canadian defeated Mercedes teammate Jamie Green in the final Q4 session to record the fastest time, with Audi drivers Mike Rockenfeller and Martin Tomczyk sharing the second row of the grid.

“Qualifying was fun, although it wasn't easy,” said Spengler. “Fortunately, I was able to improve from one qualifying heat to another. Today is a great day.”

Former champions Gary Paffett and Timo Scheider failed to make it through to Q4 and will lineup together on the third row of the grid. Edoardo Mortara qualified seventh in his second DTM qualifying session, with Ralf Schumacher eighth. Miguel Molina was ninth, with rookie Filipe Albuquerque tenth.

Mattias Ekstrom went out in the first segment and will line up 16th on the grid. “I don't know how that happened,” said the Swede. “Actually, I didn't make a mistake on my fast lap, but I suppose that I couldn't do any better today.”
