​DTM Zandvoort: Audi Sport quotes

Posted on 13. Jul, 2015 by in Audi Canada

Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport): “For a whole squad, this has been a flattering formidable weekend. Everyone during Audi Sport would rather be battling for victories than a few points. But in perspective of a weight situation, Zandvoort, above all, was about tying a damage. On Sunday, we managed to do that with Mattias (Ekström). With a stream regulations in a DTM, you’ve got to cope with weekends like this one as well. Now, we’re looking forward to a Red Bull Ring where a 3 manufacturers will be closer again in terms of weight than here.”

Dieter Gass (Head of DTM during Audi Sport): “A seventh, an eighth and dual ninth places are apparently not a outcome of a DTM weekend we wish for. But justifying a formula usually by a opening weights would be too easy. BMW were unequivocally clever during Zandvoort and we didn’t make a plain display here that we were aiming for. That we continue to have dual of a drivers during a tip of a standings and lead a manufacturers’ sequence is a positive. The points we clinched here underneath formidable conditions competence be unequivocally critical in a end.”

Mattias Ekström (Red Bull Audi RS 5 DTM #5) position 13 / position 7
“If we wish to be in row for a pretension in a DTM, points competence be only as profitable on some weekends as a trophy. That was a box this time. The competition on Sunday was one of a worse forms – in many of a duels with my colleagues we had a ‘box seat’. we privately attempted to stay transparent of all trouble. That was successful since my Audi RS 5 DTM arrived during a parc fermé though a scratch. The Championship promises to turn a thriller. we can now take a breather during my vacation in Italy and afterwards we’re going to go for all-out conflict again during Spielberg.”

Mike Rockenfeller (Schaeffler Audi RS 5 DTM #99) position 8 / position 11
“We arrived here with opposite expectations, generally as Zandvoort is a lane that unequivocally suits me well. On Saturday, in position eight, we achieved a limit that was possible. On Sunday, we had to settle for eleventh place. One of a reasons, clearly, was a additional weight a cars had on board. On a other hand, we initial have to try to pierce to a front within a Audi family. In sequence to do that, we need to remove a limit from a car, that we haven’t managed to do yet.”

Adrien Tambay (Playboy Audi RS 5 DTM #27) position 18 / position 9
“The competition on Sunday was a lot of fun. For me, it was a 60-minute subordinate though being means to take a singular low breath. Obviously, there were a few argumentative situations so that a fans will have a lot to discuss. That’s standard for Zandvoort: if you’d like to pass here, you’ll have to take a certain risk. ‘Thank you’ to my organisation for a quickest array stop in a race. We haven’t won any trophies this weekend, though we’re going to rebound back.”

Nico Müller (Audi Financial Services Audi RS 5 DTM #51) position 9 / retirement
“Zandvoort is a cold lane and a atmosphere here is fantastic. All this would even be improved if we were in row during a front. We didn’t mind scoring a dual points on Saturday in perspective of a high additional weight, though on Sunday, unfortunately, there wasn’t a lot of potential. we had a few ‘enemy contacts’ that gave my cessation a beating. That’s because we was forced to retire. The positive: we can now unpack weight and hopefully will be battling again for a large instead of a tiny indicate scores during Spielberg.”

Miguel Molina (Teufel Audi RS 5 DTM #17) retirement / position 12
“Not an easy weekend for a cars with a 4 rings but, obviously, looking during a weight distribution, we knew this in advance. My subordinate on Saturday was fine and a one on Sunday, with position five, was unequivocally good. The second competition went good for a prolonged time too, until some colleagues started personification hardball and regulating a integrate of unwashed tricks. We’re going to remember that for a future.”

Jamie Green (Hoffmann Group Audi RS 5 DTM #53) retirement / position 13
“A weekend with ups and downs. On Saturday, a subordinate event and a competition were good adult until my mistake and successive spin. On Sunday, my Audi felt even improved but, unfortunately, in subordinate we got stranded in traffic. From 18th on a grid, it’s apparently difficult. In a end, we finished in 13th place. With a improved stop, a jump into points competence even have been possible. But in annoy of scoring no points in dual races we keep heading a standings. That’s a good starting bottom for a entrance races.”

Timo Scheider (AUTO TEST Audi RS 5 DTM #10) position 14 / position 15
“I finished both races, and that’s indeed a best we can contend about a weekend during Zandvoort. On both days, we weren’t good adequate in qualifying. Now we need to investigate because that was a box so that we’ll be means to conflict again in a subsequent races. On Sunday, during slightest my gait in a competition was competitive. Unfortunately, on this track, we can’t only get past your opponents even if you’re 7 tenths faster some of a time. That’s really frustrating.”

Edoardo Mortara (Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM #48) retirement / retirement
“As expected, it was a tough weekend for all of us. Still, we have to and will take a positives home: we’ve fundamentally got a speed and are in contention. Now we have to make fewer mistakes and remove a limit from a possibilities. At Spielberg, in 3 weeks from now, we’re entering a second half of a Championship. A demeanour during a standings shows that everything’s still possible: a feat and I’m behind again.”
