2022 DTM Hockenheim: Start time, how to watch and more


After seven rounds and 14 races, 10 drivers go to the Hockenheim finale with a chance of becoming the DTM’s second GT3 champion.

BMW driver Sheldon van der Linde sits at the top of the table on 130 points, but must rebound from a disastrous weekend at the Red Bull Ring where he failed to muster a single point.

Lucas Auer is Mercedes’ main hope of defending its crown and sits just 11 points behind van der Linde in second, but hasn’t won a race since the season opener at Portimao and will be relying on his consistency to snatch his maiden title

Rene Rast is only one point adrift of Auer in third and will be aiming to call time on his career as an Audi driver with a fourth title, having made a successful return to the championship this year after spending the 2021 season in Formula E.

Thomas Preining is a surprise inclusion in the championship battle following his second victory of the year in Austria, but it would be naive to rule out the Porsche driver from the title fight, especially if it rains again in Saturday’s race.

Mirko Bortolotti is fifth in the standings but only 16 points off the lead, and his experience could go a long way in securing Lamborghini the drivers’ title in only the second time of asking.

Drivers all the way down to Maximilian Gotz in 10th have a mathematical chance of winning the title, but only the above five names have a realistic shot at the crown.
