Responses to Round 3:
Maximilian Günther (# 28 BMW iFE.20, race result: 3rd place, overall rating: 65 points): “It was a good chase from sixth on the grid. I think with third place I made the best of the situation and got important points for the overall ranking. It didn’t go well in qualifying. It was incredibly tight and I think I could have reached pole position if I hadn’t made a small mistake in my lap. I got off to a good start in the race and was able to make up three places in turn one on the outside track. All in all a good day. “
Alexander Sims (# 27 BMW iFE.20, race result: 12th place, overall rating: 1 point): “It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, this time in qualifying I didn’t get my lap times from training and had to start from 20th place. But then I had a spotlessly clean first lap without any damage to the car, which was extremely important. Later in the race I had a very nice duel with Felipe Massa – that was cool and really sweaty. Overall, twelfth place is a good result. “Kevin Siggy (# 28 BMW iFE.20, Team Redline, race result Challenge Grid: 1st place, overall rating: 61 points):” I am very happy with my first win of the season and the lead in the Appreciation. My qualifying was good, but I was even faster in practice. This qualifying format with just one lap is really annoying. You always lose a little time. For me at the start it was about defending the lead and surviving the first few corners. It worked really well and I was able to get a head start. ”
