Reactions to a deteriorate opener in Oschersleben.

Timo Scheider (#42 BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team Schnitzer,
3rd 16th place):
“I’m really
looking brazen to my initial full deteriorate with BMW and in a ADAC GT
Masters. We got off to a good start with third place in a first
race. That’s what we want, given it creates a rest of a year a
small bit easier from a sporting perspective. we have a strong
team-mate during my side in Mikkel Jensen, and Dennis Marschall and Victor
Bouveng are also doing a good job. And some of them even have more
knowledge in a GT automobile than we do, that we can advantage from. The guys
are unequivocally fervent to learn. They have desirous goals, wish to be works
drivers, acquire income from motorsport. So not creation mistakes due to
nerves and vigour is a unequivocally special task. But a guys have come
here professionally prepared, and have a lot of experience. BMW is
doing a good pursuit with a Junior programme. You can’t tell the
disproportion between immature and old. we have to contend that we am carrying a lot
of fun right now.”

Mikkel Jensen (#42 BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team Schnitzer,
3rd and 16th place):
“I didn’t expect
to finish on a lectern on my debut. we felt we were some-more the
underdogs, so a outcome is a good success and we am gay with
it. The approach that BMW Team Schnitzer works is rarely professional.
Everything is structured clearly, with a illusory upsurge of information
and a group suggestion gives we that additional motivation. Timo Scheider,
with whom we share a car, has a same truth when it comes to the
set-up that is perfect. We can both learn a lot from any other. Timo
has implausible knowledge of racing. While maybe we am a bit more
informed with a BMW M6 GT3 during a moment. My idea is to repeat the
success during a opener and if we are means to quarrel for a title, that
would be fantastic.”

Dennis Marschall (#43 BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team Schnitzer,
16th 20th place):
“I have never
gifted professionalism like there is during BMW Team Schnitzer,
all is discussed in fact both before and after a session.
We spend a lot of time in a lecture room and are constantly trying
to urge a car. The group gives it their all to yield a driver
with a best package. And even yet a work is totally
professional, we all get on unequivocally well. The atmosphere is very
informal. As a driver, we feel a clever subsidy from a team. There
is a top-class margin in a ADAC GT Masters this year. You can’t
means to make a singular mistake, we mostly have usually one possibility to put
in a discerning path and we have to make use of it.”

Victor Bouveng (#43 BMW M6 GT3, BMW Team Schnitzer,
16th 20th place):
“It is great
fun to be during a competition weekend and know that we will be operative with a
group as tip category as Schnitzer. The engineers and mechanics –
all is a best. And of course, Charly Lamm, my group principal
is an comprehensive legend. It is a good honour for me to be authorised to
paint a Schnitzer and BMW colours. The oneness in a group is
fantastic. We all advantage from Timo Scheider’s knowledge in
particular; he has clocked adult so many kilometres in a racing car. The
ADAC GT Masters is an overwhelming series. we was a best BMW motorist in
subordinate on Sunday and had a few good duels on a track. I’m
unequivocally looking brazen to a rest of a season.”
