A word from … Mike Rockenfeller

DTM motorist Mike Rockenfeller provides a personal viewpoint of a arriving races during Moscow Raceway.

How did we spend a DTM summer break?

With a group we continued to work on improving a set-up for a subsequent races. In addition, we had a series of commitments including events with a partner Schaeffler and during Audi in Neuburg. Naturally, we spent as most time as probable with my family during Lake Constance. A few days ago, a second son, Paul, was innate – he’s doing good and we’re unequivocally happy.

What’s your sense of Moscow?

I’ve had several opportunities to get to know a city even aside from a DTM races. Most recently, we visited a new Audi City where we watched a Le Mans 24 Hours – roughly directly on Red Square. It’s generally a capital that’s unequivocally value seeing. At a races we always enjoyed a friendship of a people. And a seductiveness shown by a internal reporters is considerable as well. I’ve occasionally seen so many members of a media during a press discussion as we did following my feat in a DTM’s premiere in Moscow in 2013.

What is evil of Moscow Raceway?

The lane has a good hold level. The aspect is unequivocally even and has frequency any bumps. The left-hand turns, some of that are unequivocally fast, are technically flattering severe to drive. You can’t stop as true on entering and afterwards spin in, though usually stop while you’re pushing by a corner. This poses a plea of adjusting a set-up and your pushing character so that we strike a brakes as late as probable but a back of a automobile overhanging out due to a parallel acceleration or a front wheels locking. In addition, a prolonged true offers a good event for overtaking with DRS.

What are your expectations for a dual races subsequent week?

As always, it’s formidable to envision a outcome of a race. Having scored dual victories, I’ve always felt unequivocally gentle there. We wish that we done a right stairs brazen during a summer mangle and, as a result, will be well-set for a competition weekend. In that case, we design us to be in row for victories again.
