Bruno Spengler continued his fine 2011 form by topping DTM testing at Spielberg ahead of this weekend's round at the Austrian circuit. The Canadian's pace-setting lap of 1m25.934s came late in the afternoon session, and was enough to put him ahead of his HWA Mercedes teammate Jamie Green by 0.046sec.
Gary Paffett made it an all-HWA top three with a time just 0.117sec off the pace, while Persson drivers Renger van der Zande and Christian Vietoris were next up in their 2008-spec C-class machines.
Miguel Molina was the best of the Audi drivers in his older-spec Abt A4, ahead of Ralf Schumacher's HWA Mercedes and Martin Tomczyk's old-spec Phoenix Audi.
Filipe Albuquerque was next up in his Rosberg Audi while Zandvoort winner Mike Rockenfeller was the best of the manufacturer's drivers in 2009-spec machinery and completed the top 10.
Edoardo Mortara topped the morning session in his Rosberg Audi, but slipped back to 12th overall following the afternoon session.
