Lausitzring DTM: Start time, how to watch and more

Read Time:5 Minute, 9 Second

The Lausitzring is an annual fixture on the DTM calendar but this year’s event will be like no other, with the series incorporating the first turn of the tri-oval into its familiar Grand Prix layout. This will create a hybrid track configuration, requiring cars to be quick on both the high-speed, banked Turn 1 and the more complicated in-field section.

The initial reaction to the refreshed layout has overwhelmingly been positive, with many expecting to go flat out through the oval part of the track in qualifying.

This should spice up the action in the DTM, which witnessed two first-time race winners at Monza last time out, with Formula 2 star Liam Lawson clinching victory for the AF Corse-run Red Bull team in Race 1 and Audi ace Kelvin van der Linde taking top honours in Sunday’s race.

While undercuts proved to be extremely beneficial at the Italian venue, with the entire field making their mandatory stop before the one-third distance in the second race to prevent being passed by other cars in the pits, slower tyre warm-up means the overcut could be the strategy of choice at the Lausitzring this weekend.

Several other factors will also come into play, most notably the temperature in the southern part of the Brandenburg state where the track is located.
