Arjun Maini wants to score points at the Lausitzring

21.07.2021: The double premiere of driver and team in the DTM in Monza, Italy, went very promisingly. Now Mercedes-AMG Team GetSpeed and driver Arjun Maini are hoping to score their first points in the tradition-steeped racing series at the Lausitzring next weekend.


The double premiere of driver and team in the DTM in Monza, Italy, went very promisingly. Now Mercedes-AMG Team GetSpeed and driver Arjun Maini are hoping to score their first points in the tradition-steeped racing series at the Lausitzring next weekend.




After a longer break of five weeks, the second of a total of eight race weekends of the 2021 season is now on the agenda in Klettwitz. Maini has his sights set high for rounds three and four in Brandenburg after the 23-year-old certainly impressed on his DTM debut at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza.



Adam Osieka, meanwhile, is visibly finding it difficult to go back to business as usual in view of the devastating consequences of the flood disaster around the Nürburgring region. The GetSpeed team boss is still moved and touched by the countless dramatic fates and emergencies.


"It is with a heavy heart that we leave our so badly shaken home country to start at the Lausitzring. But life must go on. Our thoughts are with the people every moment who are working tirelessly to tackle the reconstruction and who are helping those who have lost their entire livelihood."



Nevertheless, to make a further, small contribution, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 will be adorned with lettering bearing the hashtag #WirfuerdieEifel and the address www.hochwasser-adenau.de. "We hope we can use this to draw further attention to this campaign and collect more donations," says Osieka.



"In Monza we had a good pace and we made a lot of progress. Now we travel to the Lausitzring and we will come back even stronger. The overall package has huge potential. I am confident that we will soon achieve the results we all hope for. I will certainly do my best for that," says Maini.



On Saturday, the fast Indian Maini drove the #36 Mercedes-AMG GT3 to a 14th place finish in Monza after a faultless performance. The following day, he had started from 14th on the grid and, thanks to a quick pit stop by Mercedes-AMG Team GetSpeed, had moved up to twelfth. However, technical problems resulting from a collision in the starting phase of the race put a rude halt to Maini's attack on the points. He had to park his GT3 car in the pits after 15 laps for safety reasons.



Maini and his fellow drivers can look forward to an action-packed novelty at the Lausitzring: for the GT racing cars will race through the first steep bend of the trioval. Instead of braking sharply at the end of the start-finish straight and turning left, the DTM drivers will stay on the accelerator and chase through a 300-metre long left-hand bend.



The first corner, Turn 1, has an angle of inclination of almost six degrees. The circuit, which was opened in 2000, is the only German race track with steep bends, but they are only driven extremely rarely. This time it is. It is undoubtedly spectacular. And the atmosphere is also guaranteed. On each of the two days, 10,000 fans are allowed to be in the stands and loudly cheer on the drivers.



On Saturday and Sunday, there will be one qualifying and one race at the Lausitzring. The races will be broadcast live on free-TV on SAT.1 and streamed on DTM Grid (grid.dtm.com). Fans can also follow the practice sessions and qualifying sessions live there.
