are looking brazen to putting on an sparkling DTM uncover for the
eager English fans. The compressed report will no doubt be a
plea for everybody given there will usually be one giveaway practice
event for anticipating a good set-up for this lane before a first
subordinate session. However, we are assured that a teams and
drivers will conduct this with a new BMW M4 DTM with turbo drive. So
distant we have brought home a win and podiums during each competition weekend of
a deteriorate and we wish to enhance on that during Brands Hatch. The idea is
to be good positioned from a initial use event so that we can
collect adult as many points as possible.”

Marco heads to Great Britain with a lot of movement after his strong
opening during Assen and Bruno and Timo also have a gait to be up
there during a front. We will use a giveaway use on Saturday morning
to prepared a drivers as good as probable for a subordinate sessions
and a races. We are prepared for a hurdles that wait us during Brands
Hatch, and have resolved to be adult there fighting for a front of the
grid once again.”

lane as such is a genuine challenge, and when we get a right set-up,
it is a lot of fun that is because we am looking brazen to Brands Hatch.”

motorist who picked adult a many points there. we am looking brazen to
entrance to England. The blueprint of Brands Hatch has similarities with
Assen, utterly a quick turns that lead into a forest. But the
lane is most narrower, and it is substantially even some-more formidable to
pass there. I’m looking brazen to a weekend and a longer
Grand Prix lane that we have been regulating given final year. We are
anticipating to take a movement from Assen with us to Brands Hatch and to
be means to benefit some-more belligerent on a frontrunners there.”

genuine classic. Philipp and Joel like a prolonged Grand Prix version, and
a rookie Sheldon has already valid several times this deteriorate that
he fast gets to grips with marks he is unknown with. The
mixture for a successful weekend are there. The compress schedule
is a small unusual, and it is critical to use a giveaway use on
Saturday as effectively as probable to prepared for a qualifying
sessions and a races. We are prepared and will be targeting a podium
during Brands Hatch.”

overtaking, though we consider that subordinate will be a pivotal to success.”
