One shouldn’t forget possibly that we’re still racing with a same automobile we did 3 years ago, while a series of concessions have been done to a dual competitors in a meantime. All a some-more conspicuous is this clever performance. we consider for a DTM to lapse to Budapest paid off as well. Especially on Sunday, we saw a good crowd. We’re also gratified to have seen so many employees from a plant in Győr during a event. They witnessed dual widespread Audi victories. And we managed to postpone a pretension preference to a culmination during Hockenheim. The fans can demeanour brazen to a stirring showdown during that we’re going to give all once more.”

Following a 1-2-3-4-5-6 formula on Saturday we clinched a one-two and extended a lead in a manufacturers’ and a teams’ standings – though not to a border we could have. It was intensely frustrating that Edo (Mortara) and Jamie (Green) were taken out of a competition so unfortunately in spin one. Edo’s start wasn’t optimal, though he still would have had good chances of finishing distant during a front. Now we need a unequivocally clever culmination during Hockenheim. We know that we’re quick there. We’re in a good position in a manufacturers’ and a teams’ standings – and in a drivers’ classification, a final section hasn’t been created nonetheless either.”

However, it does feel bizarre not to transport to a culmination during Hockenheim. we unequivocally felt contemptible for Edo (Mortara) on Sunday. For his pretension race, scoring no points was a setback. But we know that he’s a genuine warrior and is going to conflict adult to a final scale during Hockenheim. And obviously, I’m going to watch a dual final races during Hockenheim from a World Rallycross Championship during Buxtehude.”

On Sunday, we had to conflict tough for stick position. we usually modernized from position 6 to position one during a final moment. That’s since a competition was all a some-more bitter. we didn’t have a good start. Subsequently, we was sandwiched between Wittmann and Green. A edge was shop-worn in a routine and on path one, we suffered a few some-more hits. That’s unequivocally unsatisfactory since we could have won this competition too. Now I’m roving to a culmination with a 14-point deficit. Anything’s probable and we’re going to conflict adult until a unequivocally end!”

Judging by a zone times, we could substantially have finished adult closer to a front – during slightest in position two. Finally, in a race, we done a good start. Unfortunately, Wittmann afterwards motionless to lift over to a right on a start-finish straight. First, he collided with Edo (Mortara) and subsequently strike my automobile too. It was shop-worn so heavily that we couldn’t continue to drive. Consequently, a competition was over for me after only 400 meters, that is unequivocally frustrating.”

On Sunday, it would substantially not have been adequate to bind a tip mark in qualifying, though but (Felix) Rosenqvist during slightest a improved outcome would have been probable on a second set of tires. And in a competition we could apparently have modernized even more. Moving from 16th to tenth was good. The gait was right. Plus, we finished in a points twice. For a deteriorate so far, we can be unequivocally happy with that.”

Unfortunately, it’s been too late in coming. But, obviously, it’s improved if things do work out during some indicate than carrying a whole year when it doesn’t. we had dual decent races. In terms of path times, a second competition was even improved than a initial one. That’s what we’re holding home and are now looking brazen to a weekend during Hockenheim.”
