Timo Scheider about the Lausitzring: “On this track you need a vehicle with good technical and aerodynamic functionality because the Lausitzring has fast and slow corners. Turn 1 offers particularly good opportunities for overtaking. You’ve got to take advantage of the slipstream after the long straight. Another opportunity exists in turn 5 as you’re entering the short circuit version. The track there is wide and you have a lot of room. The smooth tarmac that offers only little grip is typical for the Lausitzring. I like this modern facility. Especially when you leave the pits for the first time the setting with the high stands is very impressive. The stands by the way are perfect for the fans too, as the spectators practically have a view of the entire circuit.”
