Brands Hatch, a place 30 kilometers southeastern from London at the county of Kent, can be taken as a synonym for history as well as British motor sports. 18 contestants competed here on August 11th and 12th, amongst others the ABT pilots Robin Frijns and Nico Müller. The team takes a look back at the race:



Thomas Biermaier (Team Boss Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline)
“A whole lot more was definitely possible on this – at least for us – extremely disappointing weekend where Nico (Müller) scored just one point on Sunday. Robin (Frijns) in particular was very fast. On Saturday he was unlucky in qualifying, on Sunday the light collision with Lucas Auer on the opening lap destroyed his race. Unfortunately, Nico had two bad qualifying sessions, which are extremely important at this track.”

Nico Müller (Castrol EDGE Audi RS 5 DTM #51) 15th place / 10th place
“Although I didn’t know the track, the pace was there from the start. I like the Brands Hatch track – it was a lot of fun to drive. So it’s all the more frustrating that we didn’t score any good results. On Saturday I made a mistake in qualifying, in the race we didn’t have a good strategy. In the second race at least I scored a point. But this is of little consolation. It was definitely possible to come away with more.”

Robin Frijns (Aral Ultimate Audi RS 5 DTM #4) 12th place / 12th place
“The weekend started exceptionally well with the best and second best times in the first two free practice sessions. In the first race we lost a lot of time at the pit stop. I had to fight my way forward again from almost the back of the field. I started the second race from a good sixth place before things turned sour due to a collision with Lucas Auer.”
