In this short interview, Miguel Molina looks back on his 2015 DTM season and talks about the many appointments that he has attended since the season finale in mid October.
After several podium finishes and pole positions, you finally took your first DTM victory this year. What’s your take on the season?
“All in all, it was a good year for me. It was fantastic at the Nürburgring finally to take my first win. I was one of the fastest Audi drivers at the majority of the races, but for various reasons couldn’t convert this into a solid result. This is why my position in the final standings doesn’t reflect what would have been possible.”
You’ve been very busy since the Hockenheim finale ...
“Yes, that’s right. The week after I visited the World Rally Championship event in Spain, which was very impressive. It was the first time that I was at a rally and it was an absolute highlight. Afterwards, I competed in my first triathlon of the year in Gavà. Normally I do this more often, but this year I just didn’t have time beforehand. Then I was at the Audi Award 2015 for the best Audi dealer in Barcelona and had a fitness test in Munich this week.”
And this coming week you travel to Hamburg to contest a 24-hour race for slotcars ...
Exactly. It’ll be the second time that I participate. I’m really looking forward to it. I’m a big slotcar fan and before now occasionally competed in races in Spain. Let’s see, perhaps I’ll start in another event at home in Spain in winter.”
