Taken from www.dtm.com:
Bernd Schneider rain man in the Eifel, points for Schumacher

That was the most thrilling DTM race of the year. The weather in the Eifel turned the seventh season round of the DTM at the Nürburgring into a turbulent tyre lottery. Outstanding man of the day was the eldest driver in the field, Bernd Schneider. The 44-year old DTM record champion used all his experience and after 156.047 kilometres, he drove his AMG Mercedes C-Class across the finish line as the delighted winner.

“A great race with a good ending for me. Tonight, one round is on me”, the winner said. For Schneider, it was the 43rd DTM race win in his career. After a great recovery in the last couple of laps, his fellow Mercedes driver, Scotsman Paul di Resta, secured himself second place. The quadruple success for Mercedes-Benz was completed by British drivers Jamie Green and Gary Paffett, the latter being the best-placed driver with a year-old car in fourth place. Points’ leader Timo Scheider became the best Audi driver of the day. He remains in the lead of the points’ standings with a margin of four points over Green. DTM novice Ralf Schumacher scored his first championship point in a DTM race by finishing an excellent eighth.

Why has Half been promoted to a 2009 spec Merc and Jamie Green is stuck with last years car? Doesn't make sense to me considering Green's performances and results have been better than Halfs. :|

Half drove the old car last year just to get a feel for the series and get used to the cars. About Green, he is a good driver, no way to know.

But does Half deserve to jump from a 07 car to a 09 car? Considering he finished 11th overall in the standings last year, he should be in the same old 07 spec merc or maybe 08 one. If he doesn't win races in the new car I would put demote him to a 1949 Mercedes. :hihi:

A change of nationality might help too.

It has been the plan all along. He drove the old car last year to get a feel for the tournament because an older car is cheaper to run than a newer one. Same with McLarens test driver Paffett, they know he wont be a challenger because his commitment to F1 so they let him drive an older car too. I Half's case, he needed to get acustomed to the DTM cars and such before he can make a challenge. Despite what you believe Monkey, the level in DTM is quite high, and the cars are difficult to drive. 500HP and no traction control will challenge any driver. :yay:
