Consequently, Wittmann still has chances for the “vice championship” before the Hockenheim finale at the end of October. In the overall standings, with an equal point score as the Spaniard Daniel Juncadella, Wittmann is ranking behind Roberto Merhi whose championship win has already been determined. As the runner-up in the second race the Japanese Kimiya Sato, who competes for the Volkswagen customer team Motopark, took a podium as well, in the second race.
