Sheldon van der Linde has taken his maiden victory in the DTM in a wet race that was red flagged after a crash from Fabio Scherer damaged the barriers.
Van der Linde started at the back of the grid, but made his way to the front and pitted early, after which he took the lead of the race from Robin Frijns after the Dutchman made his mandatory stop.
Frijns had led the race with a considerable margin before the pitstops, but a great stint from Van der Linde saw the South African capture the lead from Frijns as he made his way out of the pits.
Van der Linde then began to build a lead gap before the race was halted when the slick-shod Fabio Scherer crashed his Audi RS5 DTM, which initially triggered a safety car before race control brought out the red flag.
After the restart, Van der Linde held off Robin Frijns to take his maiden victory, while Nico Müller finished third ahead of Loic Duval and Rene Rast. Müller and Rast both finished ahead of Timo Glock, despite the trio battling before the safety car, with Glock briefly holding second place ahead of Müller and Rast before ultimately dropping back.
Ferdinand Habsburg finished seventh ahead of Marco Wittmann, Philipp Eng and Lucas Auer. Mike Rockenfeller took eleventh, despite a strategic mishap that saw him make a second stop after a move to slicks backfired.
Jamie Green finished twelfth, ahead of Jonathan Aberdein, Robert Kubica and Harrison Newey.
