In addition to the DTM title-hunt, Jamie Green is pursuing another objective: The Audi works driver wants to improve his German language skills. Four days of coursework for Green at the ‘Audi Akademie’ in Ingolstadt, focusing on language that includes technical motorsport jargon and improvements in conducting media interviews. It will not be the last German course for the ambitious Brit. “I have many interviews during the race weekends, often not only in English. I also want to be able to speak to my team in German,” says Green.
