Young Driver AMR: Second and third quickest in Qualifying at Zolder

Saturday, April 09, 2011

Young Driver AMR will start for the second time a row from a front-row starting position into the Qualifying Race. During Qualifying for the second round of the GT1 World Championship at Zolder, the two Young Driver AMR were always in the top positions. Alex Müller/Tomas Enge were second fastest, Stefan Mücke/Darren Turner third fastest.

In the first segment of the three-parted-knock-out-qualifying, both Aston Martin DBR9 easily made it to the Q2 round. Alex Müller was second, while Darren Turner was fifth. In the Q2, Tomas Enge and Stefan Mücke scored a fine Young Driver AMR-double, when Enge was fastest and Mücke was second. In the final Q3-round, Alex Müller only briefly missed the Pole Position and was second place, while Darren Turner was third quickest. Due to an incident in Pre-Qualifying, the #7 car of Müller/Enge will be set back three places of the grid for the Qualifying Race and will start from fifth position. This promoted the #8 car of Mücke/Turner to second position, resulting in the second first row start for the white/orange Aston Martin DBR9 in a row.

„I had a small mistake in my fastest lap, but we showed that we are very competitive here“, Alex Müller. „We had a very good long run on old tires yesterday, so I’m really confident for the race.“

„As expected, the car is very good on this track“, Tomas Enge said. „The team did a really good job, positions two and three are a very good team effort.”

„We prepared the car very good, it performs here really well,“ Stefan Mücke said. „We are really quick over one lap, now we have to carry over that performance over to the race.“
