In this morning’s second practice session for the opening round of the 2015 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters at Hockenheim, it was Edoardo Mortara in the #48 Castrol EDGE Audi RS5 DTM that set the fastest time, a 1:32.672.

Closely behind in 2nd was Jamie Green, driver of the #53 Hoffmann Group Audi RS5 DTM, showing that the Audi may be the fastest car here this weekend.

Next was a BMW, Tom Blomqvist, in the #31 BMW M4 DTM, and following him in 4th was the #10 AUTO TEST Audi RS5 DTM of Timo Scheider. Rounding out the top five was Mattias Ekström‘s #5 Red Bull Audi RS5 DTM.

Next was 2014 champion Marco Wittmann and the #1 Ice-Watch BMW M4 DTM, with Miguel Molina‘s #17 Teufel Audi RS5 DTM in 7th.

The Mercedes isn’t looking too strong this weekend, and the first C63 is in 8th. The only Mercedes to make it into the top 10 was Pascal Wehrlein in the #94 gooix Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM.

9th on the track was Mike Rockenfeller‘s #99 Schaeffler Audi RS5 DTM and finally, rounding out the top 10 is the #18 Shell BMW M4 DTM of Augusto Farfus.
