Big congratulations to Susie Stoddart, who scored her first DTM points this weekend at Lausitz. From 12th on the grid she made up a few places through the usual argy-bargy at the start, but then held off reigning champion Timo Scheider's Audi impressively to take 7th - within 18 seconds of the winner after an hour and twelve minutes of racing.

Danica who? ;)

Ralf Schumacher, in a newer model car, was ninth, while David Coulthard retired in an accident in the early stages.
