Wittman is definitely one of the top drivers in the series, especially in the wet. Just a shame the BMWs seem to be lacking a bit of pace atm. Once they find it, it will really close up front

How they can do it in terms of technical regulations not allowing any changes? It's the same as with F1 2014 and token system, it's the same as with LMP2. You have a clear №1 and all others. I'm curious why big bosses, with such a great examples to notice, still pushing that "freezing" theme. I bet it's going to be Audi-fest till competitors will be allowed to fix the chassis or engines.

Yes you're right. With rules like in DTM it's difficult to succed if the car isn't competitive (project failed)

The only chance is to improve the package you have and maximise the potential. It seems Audi Is in the best position right now but BMW can improve during the year if the potential Is there. I'm curious about the Astons...

Of course that is one stumbling book. Certainly Audi have the early advantage, but hopefully BMW have some speed that has yet to be unlocked. Iím not sure Aston will set the world on fire this season

Aston was a good surprise. Not sure all the cars were all the same. Di Resta's pace was a bit faster than the other boys.

Given his experience in DTM I'd have been surprised if Di Resta wasn't the quickest of the Aston drivers, Juncadella wasn't on his pace in the Mercedes so no surprise he wasn't in the Aston. The other 2 need to learn the cars from scratch.

Yes and the Astons seems way back to the Audi, just to say...there is a lot of work to do for them

Fittipaldi will be replaced from Andrea Dovizioso in Misano. Fittipaldi has a clash with his driving commmitments that week end. Strange decision by Audi...It seems a classic move to attract italian fans of Dovi and Ducati in Misano. Maybe it's better to lower some tickets price...

If you can get there, one of the best viewing spots is from the top of the pitlane-building, ideally the back corner, as you can see a significant chunk of the track from there.

The viewing area at the chicane before the little up-hill section is also quite nice, as you can get quite close to the cars.

Getting there might be a bit of a mess; at least two months ago, there was some major road work going on in the area and they had rerouted road access to the circuit. Traffic on the way out might also be a problem, but there will be lots of race action even after the DTM races, so if you have time to do so, you can probably wait for the crowd to disperse, before heading home.

I'm going there tomorrow, will stay whole weekend as working on cars from support series. For sure the main pit building is the place to go, as you can see a lot from there, obviously not very close to the action. Then the first chicane and then I think back of the circuit, near the Paddock 6.
I was there week ago, so seems all road works finished already.

It was rather entertaining even(t) at Zolder. Some strategy and luck in the first race and overtaking maneuvers on Sunday.

Yes, I enjoyed both races. Now my Freeview channels have been retuned, I have got Freesports back. Certainly the SC and pitstop strategy helped in both. As did the Indy file restart

Great quali effort by Sheldon, just needs to work on his racecraft a bit

Rast seems to be one of the fastest - if not the fastest driver in the field but he definitely needs to find consistency.
I'm a bit disappointed with Wittmann. Pacewise he's up there with Rast but the results don't show it. His collision with Frijns looked rather awkward - and it's a shame for both as they could've be on the podium. I reckon Marco's pace was good enough to climb into Top 3.

As it was already issued in online-magazines, it was not Marcos fault, Frijns was handicaped by slowing engine...so maybe the stewards should have waited until end of race to hear both drivers before issuing a drive-through...


Looks like Wittmann is the only guy to match Rast in terms of speed, except of drivers with lucky strategy...
