The drawing sun at the Red Bull Ring can be unwittingly pretty. As it pours over the distant hills and valleys and pirouettes the grandstand, a sullen dusk draws.
There’s still plenty of noise, however, as in the background, drills spin and tools clang, as teams prepare for the next day.
For this particular DTM Saturday, it was all a little quieter than usual. Mercedes and BMW had been thoroughly trounced and team orders at Audi ensured Mattias Ekstrom rose through the field to win with ease, with Jamie Green gifting his Swedish teammate the victory on the final lap.
There were precious few celebrations following this folly, but the sunset removed some of the ill-feeling of the day.
