    Hot – that’s the first word that comes to mind when I think back to Austin. It was a torturous six hours for both car and driver, it was consistently 40°C in the cockpit. I am very proud of Oli and myself, as it was left to the two of us to take our not-so-easy-to-drive P1 car […]

    The premiere in Mexico was a very special event. There are many things you could write about the country itself, and I myself have mixed feelings about the country. I have to say the track and the organisers were fantastic! It really was a wonderful event. I enjoyed my time at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, […]

    Test Day went quite well for us and we were able to complete many laps (77 over both sessions). I even managed to do a full triple stint on the tyres and our times on the long runs were really impressive. In terms of one-lap, qualifying pace, we are too low – especially on the […]

    The race in Spa was definitely one of the highlights of the year for us. For us drivers, this circuit is an unbelievable thrill to drive. The perfect weather conditions made the weekend even better. We were unable to run through our testing programme in Free Practice 1, as we found a fault in the […]

    Driver’s view: Simon Trummer from Silverstone

    We travelled to the first race of the 2016 WEC with some brand-new parts on the car. Unfortunately we were unable to test them properly beforehand, so we weren’t entirely sure how they would perform. Friday’s free practice sessions, most of which took place in wet conditions, went pretty well. We seemed to be able to […]
