A word from … Jamie Green

The Briton comes to a Norisring as DTM championship leader.

You stream record this deteriorate boasts 3 wins after dual competition weekends. Your expectations for a entrance weekend during a Norisring are certainly not set for second place…

Not usually I, though also Audi as a whole had a illusory weekend during a Lausitzring. We couldn’t be any happier. Obviously, we would be gay if things continue in a same vein. But there are also some reasons to be cautious.

Which ones?

They start with a peculiarities of a travel circuit in Nuremberg. At a Norisring it’s about tip speed. This requires a totally opposite aerodynamic importance than during marks where we usually expostulate with a lot of downforce. Another cause is a success counterbalance that we have on board. My automobile weighs 1137.5 kilograms. Our lightest competitors lift around 32.5 kilos less. We are usually successful if we keep a feet resolutely planted on a belligerent and keep focused in a work.

You have a special attribute with a Norisring. You’ve won here 4 times already, a year ago we were second and best Audi driver. Why are we so good in Nuremberg?

My pushing character is such that we stop really late. This appears to be quite profitable on a travel circuit during these high speeds. You have to expostulate really precisely between a walls and pile-up barriers, be unchanging and this for 70, 80, 90 laps long. The smallest mistake can finish in tears, since there are no run off areas here like there are on permanent tracks.

Your racing form is widespread this year. How do we explain a glorious results?

There are no elemental changes. In principal, a Audi RS 5 DTM is matching to final year. We polished a set-up during a winter and these technical developments fit me. We know a automobile even better. However, we should never forget that we have clever competitors and a championship positions can change fast in a DTM. The best thing would be to lead a rankings after a final competition and not after a fourth …
