Third most successful DTM driver of all time.
Gary Paffett claims his first win of 2013 in the fourth race of the DTM season. Team-mate Christian Vietoris finishes third to take the second podium in his DTM career. No fewer than five of the six Mercedes-Benz DTM drivers finish among the points in front of a huge Lausitzring crowd (65,000 through the gates over the weekend). Paffett was in second position on the grid and took the lead from Vietoris just after the start. This was the 20th victory for Paffett in his DTM career, making him not only the best driver currently contesting the DTM, but also the third most successful DTM driver of all time. Only DTM record-breaking champion Bernd Schneider (43 wins, all with Mercedes-Benz) and Klaus Ludwig (36 wins, 22 with Mercedes-Benz) have won more races than Paffett.
