Zuber is back in action for Al Ain Team

23.09.2008: Zuber is back in action for Al Ain Team

Superleague Formula 2008 - 2nd round, Nuerburgring -

Andreas Zuber, who races under a UAE licence, left the Nuerburgring with a total of 69 points in the championship. The weekend allowed Andreas to qualify in the strong group B along with Beijing Guoan, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Sevilla, PSV Eindhoven, Flamengo, Anderlecht and AC Milan.

Zuber started race 1 from row 8 after qualifying session where the team encountered a technical problem with an badly mounted wheel bearing assembly. He started the second race from the third row and missed a top ten finish by one position.

"Friday was a long day with the new extended practice and qualifying," said Andreas Zuber. There was, however, not much that Zuber or the team could do when they realized that the car suffered from an original part with a poorly mounted wheel bearing. This unforeseen problem thwarted Zuber's effort to qualify the car in a good position.

"Unfortunately I can't perform miracles," added Zuber. "Of course, I am disappointed because if the team had realized that a defective part was delivered, they would have returned it to the wheel bearing manufacturer. It was not detected, and I ended up 17th on the grid not having achieved my goal of finishing in the points."

"On Sunday, the sky was bright and blue and the weather was perfect despite a very cold night with an air temperature of 5 degrees C that made it hard for us to keep the tyres warm despite our best efforts. In the first race, on Sunday morning I was hoping to do a good was determined to have an excellent start, and I did.

But then Tottenham had contact with my car in turn one on the opening lap with rookie Duncan Tappy hitting my rear tyre with his front wing that punctured the tyre. I had to pit to replace the tyre and lost a lot of time and positions. After the round of pit stops, I was able to set a good pace.

Then 15 laps before the end there was an oil leak on my car. I spun on the oil. It was a bit spectacular. Luckily, I managed to keep the car on the track. Overall, I am happy to have maintained my position and finished the race for the UAE club in 11th, even though it was a rather difficult race for me. But the speed was there. After the race the team will check all the systems so that the car is completely ready at the next race in Zolder."
