Rahel Frey about the Red Bull Ring: “The race track at Spielberg is my favorite circuit on the DTM calendar. I immediately felt comfortable there in 2011. The atmosphere was incredible; you could really feel how the fans joined in the celebration. In addition, Spielberg is a track with a long motorsport history that naturally blends with the landscape. There is a heavy strain on the brakes, though, due to the many up- and downhill passages. If you make a mistake, it usually has a major effect because you lose time on the next uphill stretch. There are some good opportunities for overtaking. It’s easy to follow the rhythm of the track. Spielberg no doubt suits racers with a smooth driving style.”
