“Silverstone was going really well, I started on pole and I was leading until the last three laps. I was then pushed off the track a few times whilst battling for the lead. I sadly got a penalty for exceeding track limits and finished sixth in the end. In Spa, Marcel and I worked hard together to finish in first and third. Marcel held off Dani so I could take the win for the Team. Finally in Monza, I choked during the final lap in qualifying and started in sixth. I went for the softs at the start and pitted earlier than the cars in front of me. I came out in fifth and stayed close to Enzo until the final lap where I overtook him into Ascari and finished fourth.”

MARCEL KIEFER (Germany)

  • Race 7: P7 (6 points)
  • Race 8: P3 (15 points)

“We had a good Team qualifying session in Silverstone with Frede on pole and me in third. There was some hard racing going on, I made an error and I was given a three second penalty to my finishing time. Seventh wasn´t the greatest result, but we still secured double points. Spa was a similar story in qualifying with Frede and I being on pole and third. We worked hard as a team to secure first and third. We tried recreating our Austria strategy, but it sadly didn´t work out and so we couldn´t collect our second 1-2 of the season. At Monza I messed up my run for pole in the exit of Ascari, which meant I qualified in tenth. Damage limitation was the goal for both of us. I had a rough start losing two positions and ended up P16 after the pit stops. With an aggressive, but efficient charge through the field I managed to still finish in eighth. Onto the final event of the Season!”
