Difficulties at Sachsenring

Qualifying

So the qualifying session was a strange, red-flag interrupted and difficult one. I was pretty quick during the first part of the session but when all drivers came back in to change two tires I couldn’t improve whereas the a lot of drivers did. I just couldn’t manage to string the lap together and qualified 20th.. This means there is work to be done tomorrow with my black-and-blue Jenzer Motorsport F4.

Race 1

My difficult weekend at the Sachenring continues for the moment with 20th in the first race of the weekend. I had a good start and was able to fight back a little bit from my lowly grid position but it became a bit of a jojo-race with me closing in only to drop back again. I had good pace in the Jenzer Motorsport car but I just couldn’t utilize it today. We’ll have to do better tomorrow and we will.

Race 2

So this is turning out to be quite a horrible weekend. I had a reasonable start and was looking to attack and make up ground when the safety-car came out on track following an incident in the opening lap. At the restart I tried to go outside but wasn’t spotted by the other driver who also tried to go outside, we touched and I ended up in the gravel trap. Horrible day… let’s hope for better in race 3.

Race 3

So my weekend turned from bad to disastrous with another DNF in race 3. It’s difficult to put under words my disappointment because we had so much potential in the #77 Jenzer Motorsport car. We will bounce back but for now Sachsenring was a weekend to utterly forget. Together with my team I’ll work just that much harder to make it work for the next race.
