Formula 1: Alonso takes fifth place at Hockenheim

Fernando Alonso finished in fifth position in the German Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring. The Spaniard, in whose Ferrari dampers from ZF Friedrichshafen AG are used, has scored points in all ten races so far this season. As a result of finishing fifth he defended his fourth place in the Drivers’ World Championship and secured Ferrari important points in the manufacturers’ classification. Team mate Kimi Räikkönen from Finland crossed the line in eleventh place and thus failed to score championship points.

The ZF partner team Lotus-Renault also narrowly missed scoring points. The Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado, who relies on a ZF Friedrichshafen AG clutch in his car, was twelfth.

DTM: Maxime Martin wins round five of the season at Moscow

Maxime Martin celebrated his first DTM victory in round five of the DTM season at Moscow Raceway in commanding style. The Belgian, on finishing the race after 46 laps, had an advantage of 4.259 seconds over his BMW brand colleague Bruno Spengler. The third podium place went to Audi driver Mattias Ekström. The Swede thus converted himself into the fiercest rival of Marco Wittmann (BMW), who continues to lead the drivers’ standings. Wittmann trailed Ekström in fourth place.

Ex-Formula One driver Timo Glock took sixth place behind Audi rookie Nico Müller. Martin’s triumph marks the first one achieved by a Belgian in the DTM. A special exciter: When the race was restarted following a safety car period, DTM Champion Mike Rockenfeller not only bumped himself but also his Audi brand colleague Adrien Tambay, who had been running in front of him in third place, out of the race. Christian Vietoris in seventh place was the fastest driver of a Mercedes-Benz.

All of the three premium manufacturers involved in the DTM, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, rely on high-tech clutches by ZF Friedrichshafen AG.

In the Nürburgring 24 Hours, the Audi R8 LMS ultra from Team Phoenix Racing, in which a clutch by ZF Friedrichshafen AG is installed, moved to the very front of the field for the first time two hours after the race was started.

WEC: Audi celebrates 13th victory at Le Mans

The 24-hour race at Le Mans (France) ended in an Audi one-two victory. In the WEC season’s pinnacle event, Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer in the Audi R18 e-tron quattro triumphed in front of their team-mates Lucas di Grassi, Marc Gené and Tom Kristensen. In both Audi R18 e-tron quattro cars clutches from ZF Friedrichshafen AG are used.

Toyota completed the podium. The Japanese automobile manufacturer, whose Technical Partner ZF Friedrichshafen AG is this season, had been leading the race for a long time with the #7 Toyota TS 040-Hybrid, which is equipped with a clutch of the ZF brand. However, the sports car retired with electronic problems after 14 hours. The sister car with Anthony Davidson, Nicolas Lapierre and Sébastien Buemi, in which a ZF clutch is used as well, lost ground early due to an accident but recovered to third place.

A strong debut was shown by the two Porsche 919 Hybrid cars, which are equipped with clutch technology by ZF Friedrichshafen AG. The LMP1 sports car of Timo Bernhard/Brendon Hartley/Mark Webber was leading during parts of the race but in the final stage retired with a defect. The second Porsche – driven by Romain Dumas, Neel Jani, Marc Lieb – demonstrated its performance capabilities as well but lost ground and crossed the finish line on its own strength.

DTM: BMW driver Marco Wittmann wins DTM comeback in Hungary
Marco Wittmann is the beaming winner of the DTM comeback in Hungary. The BMW driver, after 41 racing laps on the Hungaroring, was the first to cross the finish line with a 6.615-second advantage over Audi driver Miguel Molina. For Wittmann, following his victory in the Hockenheim season opener, this marked the second triumph in 2014. On winning this race, the German from the Franconia region has taken the lead of the standing, bumping the reigning champion Mike Rockenfeller, who only scored one point in tenth place in front of a crowd of 33,000 spectators (throughout the weekend), from the top spot.

With a strong recovery Bruno Spengler (BMW) battled his way to a podium finish in third place. The crowd at the circuit near the capital city of Budapest was treated to numerous duels and overtaking maneuvers throughout the race. One of the protagonists was Edoardo Mortara (Audi), who finished in fourth place and, trailing Wittmann and Rockenfeller, advanced to third place in the drivers’ standings. The best driver of a Mercedes-Benz was Robert Wickens in eleventh place. All of the three premium manufacturers involved in the DTM, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, rely on high-tech clutches by ZF Friedrichshafen AG.
