“I adore Zandvoort, it’s a cold track,” Green pronounced during an Audi write press discussion on Wednesday. “For me, Zandvoort is a lane of a year,” Mattias Ekström affirmed. “There are usually few allied circuits in a world. The quick right-hand spin during a finish of zone one is a best dilemma of a season. Plus, a best DTM races are always hold during Zandvoort. Overtaking opportunities are good there, even but DRS. If it was adult to me, Zandvoort would sojourn on a DTM calendar forever.”

Green and Ekström conclude a special plea of a 4.307-kilometer roller-coaster lane in a dunes. “I have some-more butterflies in my stomach there than on other competition tracks,” pronounced Mattias Ekström. “You need some-more thoroughness when we expostulate there. If we make a mistake, we finish adult in a sand or in a ensure rails.”

“It’s good that in a DTM we’re racing on such a classical competition lane instead of usually on complicated circuits,” pronounced Jamie Green. “There are quick corners, delayed corners, and a lane is engaging to drive.”

When it comes to assessing their possess chances, both Audi drivers use patience in perspective of a opposite opening weights. At Zandvoort, they can comment for as most as 0.5 seconds per lap, according to a mechanism make-believe of a Audi Sport engineers. “I’m going to let myself be astounded about where we stand,” Ekström commented. “I trust that but a opening weights Audi would have dominated a deteriorate so far. That’s because I’m fervent to see how we’ll demeanour compared with Mercedes. We’ll be pushing with a same weight for a initial time given a Hockenheim deteriorate opener.”

Green: “It’s not easy to contend how a relations strengths will vessel out and how clever BMW will be in perspective of a poignant weight advantage they have. But in a past, a lane during Zandvoort always matched Audi improved than a Norisring and in terms of weight we’re in a improved position than we were dual weeks ago as well.”
