“It’s a little like Silverstone this weekend“, Darren Turner said. „The Nürburgring is a classic Grand Prix-track, smooth and without bumps, this and the cool temperatures suit our car quite well. Our goal was to make it to Q3, and to take the Pole here is an extra special”.

“As always on the Nürburgring, the weather played an important role“, Tomas Enge stated after Qualifying. “I hope it will be dry for he race. The Aston Martin DBR9 is a car which is very sensitive on different kinds of circuits. This is a track the car really likes.“
