» Quotes – race 2, Hockenheim





Gerhard Berger, Chairman ITR e. V.



"Tension is always high for the first event of any season – because you don't know what the effect of the numerous technical changes will be; what the reliability of the cars will be like; whether cars will hit trouble, or if one manufacturer has done a better job than all the others. Therefore, I'm all the more happy that we have seen an altogether great weekend: the new cars are faster and more spectacular, and we had two thrilling races.



 Newcomers Aston Martin have made a really good first impression and Audi and BMW have scored one race win each. For me, the most important thing was the positive feedback from the fans, who are always the most important people to listen to. The TV ratings on Saturday were very promising, and the on-site spectator attendance was good as well. We can definitely build on this."







René Rast, winner



"What a race, unbelievable! One of the best of my career. I never expected today's victory. During the Safety Car intervention, we made an extra pit-stop after which we were clearly superior with fresh tyres. Of course, it was great fun making it all the way through the field within two laps. That is what the fans want to see. And today, the racing gods were on our side and let us win."
 




Nico Müller, 2nd place



"Initially, I tried to stay calm and let things play out. I honestly didn't know what to expect from this race. Once I noticed that I was at the front in terms of speed, I tried to manage the tyres. For me, the restart after the Safety Car went well. And, on top of that, my team did an outstanding job during my pit-stop. That allowed us to make up another position."





Robin Frijns, 3rd place



"My start was anything but good and I dropped back to eighth place. Then, however, my race pace was good and I was able to make up positions and overtake as other drivers had more problems managing their tyres. I really enjoyed the battles today. Third place is a good result and I am very happy."
