Ekstrom excluded, Wickens gets win


Mattias Ekstrom has been stripped of his Norisring DTM victory  giving Robert Wickens his first win.

Ekstrom was adjudged to have broken the series’ parc ferme regulations when he was given water while celebrating his on-the-road victory. The decision brings polesitter Wickens up to first place in an all-Mercedes top three.

Christian Vietoris is now classified second, with Daniel Juncadella getting his first podium in third. Audi now has the opportunity to appeal the ruling.

Ekstrom has also been given a 1000 euro fine for not putting the steering wheel back on his Abt Audi in parc ferme.
