Eight Audi RS 5 DTM cars join the grid for the 2013 DTM. They are fielded by the three proven Audi Sport squads Abt Sportsline, Phoenix and Rosberg, which have reinforced in part by recruiting additional personnel. Audi Sport also left nothing to chance when selecting the driver line-ups: two of the drivers are double DTM Champions, five have already won DTM races – and all eight have mounted the podium at least once. New team-mate to Mattias Ekström (Sweden) at Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline and only newcomer at Audi is Briton Jamie Green – the 30-year-old is currently regarded as one of the fastest and best DTM drivers. The other driver pairings remain almost identical to the 2012 season. Timo Scheider (Germany) and Adrien Tambay (France) compete for Audi Sport Team Abt, Miguel Molina (Spain) and Mike Rockenfeller (Germany) for Audi Sport Team Phoenix, Filipe Albuquerque (Portugal) and Edoardo Mortara (Italy/France) for Audi Sport Team Rosberg.
