Tom Blomqvist has been excluded from qualifying for the second race of the Moscow DTM weekend, costing him the pole position he earned earlier this morning and sending him to the back of the grid.

The Brit’s BMW M4 was found to contain less than the minimum of fuel required post-qualifying, an infraction that leads to outright exclusion from the session.

Not only does this cost him a favourable starting position, but he will also be docked the three bonus points handed out for the fastest time in qualifying.

This moves his BMW stablemate Bruno Spengler up to first, with Mattias Ekström and René Rast now second and third.

Rast consequently extends his slim championship lead by one point, with Ekström now level with Lucas Auer in second overall thanks to his promotion to second in this morning’s qualifying.
