Positive result of DTM doping test
During the second DTM weekend, held at the EuroSpeedway Lausitz, the FIA subjected several drivers to doping tests. In addition to the top-four finishers of the race, Gary Paffett (Mercedes-Benz), Tom Kristensen (Audi), Mika Häkkinen (Mercedes-Benz) and Mattias Ekström (Audi), two of the other 16 drivers were drawn by lot to be also tested: Christian Abt (Audi) and Manuel Reuter (Opel). At Brno, the drivers were informed on the result of the tests. The positive result: all the six tests were negative – the DTM drivers are clean.
