The Head of Audi Motorsport about Audi Sport’s successes at Spa and at Hockenheim.
How did you experience this weekend?
It’s been a strong and successful weekend for Audi Sport – particularly Saturday. Celebrating victories in the WEC and in the DTM is something that cannot be taken for granted. So, our joy about them was all the greater. A big thank you goes to everyone involved in them. It’s a shame that things didn’t go so well on Sunday at Hockenheim in the DTM. We’re trying to understand what the reason was. But we’re already looking ahead to the next two races at Spielberg.
How do you rate the success with the Le Mans prototypes at Spa?
For our LMP squad, it was a really difficult weekend. Obviously, having won the race with our car number “8” is a very nice result. But it’s also clear that we still have a lot of work to do.
Mattias Ekström won the round of the World Rallycross Championship at Hockenheim. Were you able to watch the one-two result of his team?
Unfortunately, not – I was in a meeting during the final rounds. But of course I’m happy for Eki. I heard that it was a really strong performance.
The Audi Sport TT Cup had a successful start of the season at Hockenheim as well...
I watched race two on Sunday and really liked what I saw. There are some promising young talents on the grid that we’re promoting and that have great potential.
