Nuremberg:

Mercedes driver Gary Paffett claimed victory in the latest round of the DTM tour at the Norisring in Nuremberg, Germany. The Briton finished 1.9 seconds ahead of teammate Christijan Albers in the fifth race of the season, with Bernd Schneider also of Mercedes Benz third, capping a great day for the German car makers. Albers, who started third on the grid, had a great start and soon took the lead. But four laps later Albers was forced to give up his position at the front of the race due to problems in the pits. Albers' pit problems allowed his teammate Briton Gary Paffett to take the lead. By lap forty-four the Briton was doing well, holding off the challenge from Christian Abt of Audi. (AP)
