BMW might be singing the praises of DTM Champion Marco Wittmann but that hasn't stopped Audi from pointing out they won the manufacturers’ championship with an impressive one-two-three victory in the DTM finale at the Hockenheim.

The impressive showing helped propel the four-ringed brand from a 21 point deficit to a 30 point lead. As a result, Audi finished the season with 409 points while BMW and Mercedes brought up the rear with 379 and 222 points, respectively.

In a statement, Audi Sport DTM Head Dieter Gass said “Today Audi showed ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’: before the start of the race with the driverless RS 7 and in the DTM finale with a one-two-three victory." He added, "Our aim this weekend was to win the manufacturers’ championship. And in the end we clearly decided it in Audi’s favor – not least thanks to a brilliant team performance. That drivers from all three Audi Sport Teams mounted the podium today speaks a clear language."
