Ferdinand Habsburg’s DTM season is going well – he’s taken a pole position and a podium and is edging closer to a race win – but when he was called-up during the 24 Hours of Spa race week to join Audi Sport and represent WRT, no one expected him and his team-mates to get through to SuperPole and to finish inside the top 15.

Ferdinand Habsburg should have been having a much-deserved weekend off this Saturday and Sunday but, thanks to an impressive DTM season in the Audi RS5 DTM, including a pole position, two front row starts, four second row starts and a podium, Audi Sport has called him up to represent the brand in the biggest GT3 race in the world, the 24 Hours of Spa.

Ferdinand Habsburg has had a weekend of firsts as he took his maiden DTM podium and pole position in only his first season in the WRT Audi RS5 DTM. The 23-year old has impressed all season, slowly climbing closer to the top and his sights are now set on a race win in Hockenheim.

Ferdinand Habsburg proved once again that he is a DTM force to be reckoned with after qualifying inside the top four for the fourth time this season, this time at Zolder in Belgium. After qualifying alongside current champion and eventual race winner Rene Rast in his Audi RS5 DTM, the 23-year old Austrian believes that a podium finish is well within reach if everything comes together.
