Mike Rockenfeller is on pole for DTM premiere in Moscow – 

Moscow. Mike Rockenfeller (Audi) is starting from pole position for the DTM premiere at Moscow Raceway. His fellow Audi driver Mattias Ekström will be lining up next to him in second place on the front row on the grid. The second row on the grid is a lock-out for BMW drivers: Augusto Farfus is starting from third place into the sixth round of the 2013 season, Bruno Spengler is fourth on the grid. DTM qualifying was stopped for safety reasons after the third qualifying heat. Air space above the circuit was closed at short notice. Therefore, a start of the rescue helicopter would have been impossible.
