Vienna – Thursday, September 30, 2021, 11:58 a.m.
With a double header at Hockenheim and at the Norisring, the DTM is heading into the home straight in 2021.
Before the weekend before last, the New Zealand Ferrari driver and series rookie Liam Lawson (19) is leading sensationally, but 112 points are still to be awarded in the remaining four races.
The Austrian Lucas Auer can no longer intervene in the fight for the overall victory and after his victory in Assen on Saturday also has an additional 25 kilos in the AMG-Mercedes GT3.
Auer is already too far behind Red Bull Junior Lawson. The young Spielberg double winner is also competing for a top position in Formula 2 and is being traded as a future Formula 1 driver at Alpha-Tauri.
Auer sees additional weight calmly
Auer is seventh in the overall standings and can fully attack the DTM, which has been driven with GT3 cars since this year. But at least in the next race it will carry a considerable amount of extra weight with it.
The decisive factor for the nephew of DTM boss Gerhard Berger’s anyway, because of the rather low temperatures, are the tires.
“I’m looking forward to this challenge. The perfect Sunday in Assen, with pole and victory, has decisively boosted the team’s self-confidence.” For him: “All in, flat out (note: at full throttle). It is a cool track that is easy to overtake because there are nice hard braking zones and where real racing is possible the qualifying is very interesting, it will be very close, especially in the last sector. The times will be very close together. “
