Alexander Prémat

Earlier, DTM driver Alexander Prémat had a very lucky escape at Adria Raceway. As the pack crossed the start / finish line, the Frenchman was touched into a spin only to collect the full force of the barriers and be catapulted into a series of violent barrel rolls that tore much of Audi A4 apart.
Incredibly, Prémat jumped from his wrecked Team Phoenix prepared machine almost instantly, although he appeared to be – quite understandably – winded. Due to the severity of the accident and the large amounts of debris distributed across the track, the race was instantly red flagged.

The race was eventually won by ABT Sportline’s Timo Scheider ahead of championship challenger Gary Paffett, with series leader Bruno Spengler claiming the final podium spot. Force India reserve driver, Paul di Resta sits second in title race as the series heads to its final race of the season at Shanghai in four weeks time.
