Augusto Farfus played his strategy to perfection to win the opening round of the DTM at Hockenheim. The RBM BMW driver ran second to polesitter Timo Scheider for the opening handful of laps, but used his DRS to take the lead from the Abt Audi at the hairpin on lap six.

Helmut Marko’s presence at Red Bull is a help rather than a hindrance to the Formula 1 outfit’s ambitions, insists team boss Christian Horner. Although Marko’s outspoken views have often stirred up controversy – especially because of his close ties with Sebastian Vettel – Horner claims that Marko’s Red Bull advisory role assists the F1 squad by giving it the independence it needs. With the recent ‘Multi 21′ team orders row having prompted fresh intrigue about the management make-up at Red Bull, Horner argued that he is freed up by Marko’s responsibilities with Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz

Formula 1 should not be too hard on itself over criticisms that its push for softer tyres has gone too far, says McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh.
