Liam Lawson took the win at the second DTM race of the weekend at the Red Bull Ring, withstanding immense pressure from polesitter Marco Wittmann for over half the race.
Lawson jumped Wittmann at the pitstops with an excellent stop from the AF Corse Red Bull Ferrari team, and didn’t look back as he took his second win of the weekend. That meant, out of a possible 56 points across both qualifying sessions and the races, he took 55 points out of a possible 56.
Maximilian Götz finished third in a further boost to his championship challenge, although he drops to third in the overall standings behind Lawson.
Philip Ellis finished fourth, with Lucas Auer sixth. Championship leader Kelvin van der Linde came home sixth, although he was eighth on the road but gained two positions thanks to 5-second time penalties for Vincent Abril, who crossed the line sixth but ended up in eighth, and Daniel Juncadella, who finished seventh but got demoted to 12th.
Arjun Maini finished seventh as his DTM season continues to improve. Abril was eighth, with Maximillian Buhk ninth. Timo Glock rounded out the points in 10th.
Maximilian Paul finished 11th in his second DTM race, while Juncadella was 12th after his penalty.
Esteban Muth finished 13th, with the late-pitstopping Nico Müller 14th. Sophia Flörsch crossed the line in 15th, with Esmee Hawkey 16th.
Alex Albon finished 17th after a puncture soon after his pitstop meant he had to stop again.
Dev Gore, Sheldon van der Linde and Mike Rockenfeller retired from the race, all with mechanical issues after the safety car-free race.
