We had utterly a bit on a bulletin and managed to check off a lot of a equipment on a list. That’s going to assistance us for this season. Last year, we were rather capricious in terms of a set-up. Now we’ve got a transparent line. That provides some-more certainty and felt good here. Every time we was in a car, we was competitive. We’ve had clearly worse ITR tests before…”

“Day one was satisfactory to middling. We had a few teenager difficulties. That’s since we spent a small reduction time on lane than planned. Day two, on a other hand, was really positive. It was one of a best exam days I’ve ever had in a DTM. We’ve come adult with some good approaches to optimize a set-up for my pushing style.

I’m really happy with a test, looking brazen to a few days off, a research of a information we collected here and, of course, to returning to Hockenheim for a deteriorate opener in 4 weeks from now. The tire tests for 2017 were interesting, too. we had 3 really certain days here and can frequency wait for a deteriorate to indeed start.”

We managed to check off all a equipment on a list and accumulate a lot of information that we’re now going to analyze. The prolonged runs we did were promising, too. It was a contrition that we missed that final hour on Friday since we had a small off-track outing in a finish turn. Fortunately, we had roughly finished a program.”

“I feel really gentle in my new team. We work together superbly. The approach we work is a right fit. We were entirely focused on extracting a best from a dual exam days we had. Unfortunately, a continue conditions were flattering fanciful on both days. That’s since on a dry lane we weren’t means to check off as many equipment on a list as we’d been hoping. But a path times on day dual were okay. We’ll see where wew mount in a initial race. Until then, we’re going to be bustling examining information and entertainment strength for a deteriorate opener.”

The guys during Audi Sport and during Abt did a good pursuit over a winter and teased out a few some-more hundredths from a car. We’re anticipating for this to assistance us be in row during a front this season. we feel prepared like never before and really gentle during Abt as well.
