Schubert Motorsport Teammanager Stefan Wendl blickt auf die Saison zurück

ADAC GT Masters, 24h Nürburgring, 24h Dubai, VLN: Hinter dem Team Schubert liegt eine abwechslungs- und erfolgreiche Motorsport-Saison. Vor allem im ADAC GT Masters konnte das „PIXUM Team Schubert“ powered by Jochen Schweizer mit drei Siegen, neun Podestplätzen und dem dritten Platz in der Teamwertung die eigenen Erwartungen erfüllen. Bei den Langstreckenklassikern hatte Schubert Motorsport allerdings Pech.

Im Interview blickt Teammanager Stefan Wendl auf die Saison 2013 zurück und gibt einen ersten Vorgeschmack auf das Programm für das kommende Jahr.

Herr Wendl, wo würden Sie die Saison von Schubert Motorsport auf einer Skala von 1 (sehr schlecht) bis 10 (sehr gut) einordnen?
Stefan Wendl: „Ich würde ihr insgesamt eine 7 geben. Allerdings lässt sich die Saison 2013 aus unserer Sicht zweiteilen. Unser Jahr im ADAC GT Masters hat sicher eine 8 oder 9 verdient. Dort haben wir einen super Job gemacht und uns in unserer zweiten Saison sehr gut etabliert. Wir hatten zwei BMW Z4 GT3 am Start und konnten dank unserer starken Sponsoren viel mehr testen als im Vorjahr. Das hat uns in die Situation gebracht, dass wir bis zum letzten Rennen in der Teamwertung an der Spitze lagen. Leider hat es dann ganz knapp nicht zum Titelgewinn gereicht, aber im Nachhinein sind wir auch auf den dritten Platz stolz. Wir hatten eine sehr gute Saison, der leider das i-Tüpfelchen eines Titelgewinns gefehlt hat.“

Auf der Langstrecke lief es nicht ganz so gut…
Wendl: „Deshalb würde ich ihr auch nur eine 3 geben. Obwohl wir über das Jahr hinweg häufiger im ADAC GT Masters unterwegs waren, waren die 24 Stunden auf dem Nürburgring und in Dubai sehr wichtige Rennen für uns. Vor allem auf der Nordschleife zum zweiten Mal in Folge als von BMW werksunterstütztes Team an den Start gehen zu dürfen, war eine große Ehre für uns. Umso größer fiel unsere Enttäuschung darüber aus, dass wir es aufgrund eines Unfalls und technischer Probleme bei beiden Langstreckenrennen nicht geschafft haben, auf das Podium zu kommen. Eigentlich war es immer eine Stärke unseres Teams, geringe Ausfallquoten zu haben. Wir hoffen, 2014 wieder zu dieser alten Stärke zurückzufinden.“

Wie zufrieden sind Sie generell mit der Zusammenarbeit mit BMW Motorsport?
Wendl: „Wir arbeiten nun schon seit vielen Jahren sehr gut zusammen und sind stolz darauf, zum zweiten Mal in Folge Werksunterstützung bei den 24 Stunden auf dem Nürburgring bekommen zu haben. Wir haben gemeinsam hart gekämpft, hatten aber in dieser Saison leider nicht das nötige Quäntchen Glück. Die enge Partnerschaft mit BMW bedeutet uns sehr viel.“

Wie waren Sie mit Ihren Fahrern im ADAC GT Masters zufrieden?
Wendl: „Wir hatten zwei sehr positive Überraschungen im Team. Das waren unsere beiden Rookies Max Sandritter und Dominik Baumann. Dass Dominik stark sein würde, konnten wir nach seinem Gewinn des EM-Titels schon ein wenig erwarten. Dass er aber so stark sein würde, hat uns dann doch erstaunt. Die Leistung von Max, der als Nobody zu uns kam, muss man besonders hervorheben. Er ist von unseren erfahrenen Leuten im Team, vor allem auch von Claudia Hürtgen und Jörg Müller, Schritt für Schritt nach vorn gebracht worden und hat alles, was wir ihm beigebracht haben, glänzend umgesetzt. Das hat man dann auch an den Ergebnissen gesehen. Sein Sieg auf dem Sachsenring und die beiden weiteren Podiumsplätze hat er aus eigener Kraft herausgefahren. Ihm ist nichts geschenkt worden. Claudia hat gemeinsam mit Dominik ein sehr gutes Team gebildet und extrem viel für das Set-up des Fahrzeugs getan. Sie ist eine echte Konstante bei uns im Team. Jörg war leider durch seinen Unfall in Spa gehandicapt. Eine Zeit lang körperlich, aber später vor allem dadurch, dass ihm im Vergleich zu seinen Teamkollegen viele Testkilometer gefehlt haben. Er konnte sein Potenzial sicher nicht vollständig zeigen, hat sich aber mit seiner Erfahrung sehr gut ins Team eingebracht.“

Wie groß ist der Anteil des Teams am Erfolg während der Saison?
Wendl: „Unglaublich groß. Der Einsatz, die Moral – alles hat gestimmt. Wir haben kein einziges Rennen wegen eines Fehlers im Team verloren, obwohl wir gerade zu Saisonbeginn unglaublich hart gearbeitet haben. Die Jungs haben voll mitgezogen, und wir hatten immer eine gute Stimmung im Team. Dafür meinen herzlichen Dank!“

Wie sehen die Planungen für die Saison 2014 aus?
Wendl: „Unsere Pläne haben sich im Vergleich zur abgelaufenen Saison nicht verändert. Wir haben vor, wieder zwei BMW Z4 GT3 im ADAC GT Masters einzusetzen. Auch bei den 24 Stunden von Dubai werden wir wieder als Saudi Falcons Team Schubert mit zwei BMW Z4 GT3 starten. Mit dem BMW 320d möchten wir außerdem unseren Klassensieg aus dem Vorjahr verteidigen. Unser weiteres Rennprogramm werden wir bekanntgeben, wenn alle Details feststehen. Sicher ist aber schon jetzt: Wir freuen uns auf eine erneut spannende und hoffentlich erfolgreiche Saison 2014.“

“PIXUM Team Schubert” in the points at season finale in Hockenheim

One fourth and two sixth places: it was with these results that “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer ended the ADAC GT Masters season at the Hockenheimring (DE). Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) finished fourth in Saturday’s race at the wheel of the number 20 BMW Z4 GT3, while Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) came home sixth in both races. With ten minutes remaining of Sunday’s race, it looked as if they may actually end the season with a podium, until two late safety phases resulted in the number 19 BMW Z4 GT3 dropping from second to sixth. The number 20 car finished 17th on Sunday after a difficult race. 

The title race in the Team competition went right down to the final laps of Sunday’s race, and “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer was still in with a shout for much of the race. The team from Oschersleben (DE) ultimately finished third overall with 215 points. In the Drivers’ Championship, Baumann, who celebrated his 22nd birthday on Sunday, and Hürtgen ended the season in fourth place with 175 points, while Klingmann and Sandritter were ninth. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “That is an extremely disappointing end to the season, although we actually performed well. The way we were dealt with at the restarts after the safety car phases was, in my opinion, out of order. Some of our rivals clearly crossed the line during the skirmishes. In terms of performance, I am very happy with our team. Second place in Sunday’s race would have been a nice way to end the season with our heads held high.” 

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “I am very disappointed with the outcome of Sunday’s race. It was frustrating that the safety car came out at all for the first phase. I had to swerve onto the grass when the Corvette spun, and picked up a lot of grass in the process. That resulted in the water temperature in the engine rising quickly, which obviously disadvantaged me at the restart. On top of that, my opponents also dealt with me rather roughly. A podium would have been a nice way to end the season. I also feel very sorry for the team, that we were not able to win the Team competition. They would have deserved that title.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “Saturday’s race was very positive for us. Max got off to a super start, which allowed us to climb into fourth. This track does not particularly suit the BMW Z4 GT3, so it was always going to be hard to do any better. Unfortunately I was spun by an Audi on Sunday. That caused strong vibrations in the car, which ultimately led to the second spin and probably the puncture too. Despite this we still managed to finish the race. We owed that to the fans. It is a shame that we just missed out on the Team title. We tried our hardest, but unfortunately it just wasn’t to be.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” relaxed ahead of season finale in Hockenheim

While “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer still has a mathematical chance of winning the title going into the season finale of the ADAC GT Masters at Hockenheim (DE), the team from Oschersleben (DE) is not master of its own sporting destiny in either the drivers' standings or the team standings. 

In the drivers' standings Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) are in third place, 46 points off the top. To win the title, they would need to win both races and hope that their rivals don't finish. In the team standings “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer is in second place, 18 points behind the leading Audi team. 

Given the situation in the championship, the drivers and team management are focusing on finishing the season successfully. This will be helped by the 15 kilograms of extra weight, that has been slowing down the two BMW Z4 GT3s since the race weekend at the Slovakia Ring (SK) as part of adjusting the Balance of Performance, being removed from both vehicles. The two races in Hockenheim both start at 12:00 local time on Saturday and Sunday. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Principal Schubert Motorsport): “We're pleased that we can contest the two races in Hockenheim without the 15 kilograms of extra weight. Unfortunately it looks like those in charge realised that it was a mistake to change the Balance of Performance after the races at the Slovakia Ring too late for us in the battle for the championship. At least we now have a better chance of finishing our season with a good result. Since we can no longer win the championship by ourselves, we'll just do our best and see what happens.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “Our chances of winning a title are minimal. That's why I'm pretty relaxed going into the race weekend. As far as teamwork, performance and consistency are concerned, we've had a good season overall, which we can be pleased with. It's important to recognise that those who win the title in Hockenheim have deserved it. My aim is to get another two good results.” 

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “We don't do giving up, even when we have to be realistic and see that our chances of winning the team standings are very low. However, since we have now offloaded the 15 kilograms of additional weight, I think that we will be able to get another two top ten results in Hockenheim, even if the track doesn't really suit our vehicle. We will definitely give it our all as usual.”

Podium for “PIXUM Team Schubert” at the Sachsenring

The penultimate race weekend of the ADAC GT Masters season ended with a third place on Saturday, followed by fifth and sixth in Sunday’s race at the Sachsenring (DE) for “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer. 

Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) started from sixth on Saturday in their BMW Z4 GT3, and climbed into a podium position thanks to a very good strategy and a flawless drive. On Sunday, the same duo started from ninth and, despite problems during the pit stop and a spin, which was through no fault of their own, still managed to come home sixth. 

Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) finished just in front of them in fifth place on Sunday. They were running third until shortly before the finish, but dropped two positions when it started to rain and the track became extremely slippery. The number 20 BMW Z4 GT3 retired from Saturday’s race with a puncture. Victory in both races went to Audi drivers René Rast (DE) and Kelvin van der Linde (ZA), who lead the championship. 

Although “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer did not enjoy quite the same degree of success as it did last year at the Sachsenring, when it finished one-two on Sunday, it goes into the season finale in Hockenheim (DE) with at least a mathematical chance of winning the title in both the Drivers’ and Team competitions. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “Unfortunately it panned out exactly as we feared. The Audis were head and shoulders above everyone else here. They obviously did a very good job and adapted their car very well to this circuit, but they obviously also remain far better classified by the Balance of Performance than we are. Our team did an absolutely perfect job when it comes to the car set-up and strategy. We improved greatly on our start positions in both races. However, there was no competing with Audi. Despite this, we will not change our approach for Hockenheim. As long as we still have a mathematical chance in the title race, we will definitely not be giving in. Unfortunately, however, it is no longer in our own hands.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “That was a difficult weekend for us. On Saturday we drove one of the best races of the season, primarily thanks to our outstanding strategy. We simply could not do better than third place. We were running well on Sunday, and could possibly have challenged for a podium again, had we not lost a bit of time during the pit stop. The two wins for our direct rivals this weekend were obviously a set-back in the title race. However, we will still be firing on all cylinders again in Hockenheim.” 

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “I am not happy with the weekend. Not due to my retirement on Saturday, however. That kind of contact can always happen at the start. And not because of the place we lost during the closing stages on Sunday, as I was simply unable to hold off the Porsches on the wet track. What annoys me the most is that the 15 kilograms of additional weight, which we still have on board the car, meant we had no chance in terms of speed. If we cannot compete at the very front of the field at a circuit that is actually superbly suited to the BMW Z4 GT3, then I believe that there must be something wrong with the Balance of Performance.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” to go on full attack at the Sachsenring

The penultimate race weekend in the ADAC GT Masters season at the Sachsenring (DE) is crucial for “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer. The team from Oschersleben (DE) is eager to follow on from the successes it had there last season and in doing so secure a good starting position for the title fight at the season finale in Hockenheim (DE). 

In 2013, the team achieved a one-two in the second race at the Sachsenring. Jens Klingmann (DE) – back then a guest starter for the injured Jörg Müller (DE) – and Max Sandritter (DE) were victorious, beating Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE). This time, in terms of the prospect of winning the title in the drivers' championship, the aim is to pick up as many points as possible in the car number 19 BMW Z4 GT3. Baumann and Hürtgen are third in the overall standings with 136 points, and are 19 points off the top. In the team standings, “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer has a narrow lead with 168 points. The two races at the Sachsenring on Saturday and Sunday both start at 12:00 pm CEST. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Principal Schubert Motorsport): “Our motto for this weekend is full attack. If we want to be in with a chance of winning the title in the drivers' championship, we need to get as much out of Dominik and Claudia's vehicle as possible. In terms of the team standings, it will also be important for our number 20 car to be up near the front. The track should suit our vehicle, but, as a result of the Balance of Performance, which means we will have 15 kilos of extra weight, I don't think we will be the clear favourites. The winding track also suits the Audi down to a T.” 

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, number 19): “It's crucial for us to come to terms with the disappointment at the Nürburgring and go on full attack – without any lapse in concentration. From my perspective it would be a mistake to draw too many conclusions from our strong results last year. We've already seen that the balance of power can shift on the individual tracks a few times this year. We will definitely give it our all and see if that's enough to finish at the top.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, number 20): “Naturally I enjoy looking back on my guest start last year, which was extremely successful with a win and a third place. I'm really looking forward to returning to the Sachsenring and am extremely excited about the race. My aim is to repeat last year's victory. We'll have to wait until after qualifying to see whether that's possible.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” picks up points on a difficult weekend at the Nürburgring

“PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer experienced a difficult sixth race weekend in the ADAC GT Masters at the Nürburgring (DE). In changeable weather conditions the team from Oschersleben (DE) had one vehicle finish in the points in each of the two races. On Saturday Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) caught up well, despite 15 kilos of additional weight due to a Balance of Performance (BOP) adjustment and 10 kilos of extra weight due to success. The number 19 BMW Z4 GT3 started in 14th and crossed the finish line in ninth. Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) started the race in 24th after an accident in the free practice session and also worked their way up the field. However they didn't pick up any points for 12th. 

The second race on Sunday went much better for Klingmann and Sandritter. They finished fifth in extremely difficult weather conditions and made sure that “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer was narrowly able to retain its lead in the team standings with 168 points. Baumann and Hürtgen were unlucky in the race on Sunday and didn't pick up any points, finishing in 15th. In the drivers' standings they are in third place, 19 points off the top. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Principal Schubert Motorsport): “After our new classification in the BOP we knew before the race that we would find it difficult here. Unfortunately this was confirmed. It proved that we weren't bluffing when we complained about the BOP, rather that we weren't able to compensate for the additional weight on this track. It was a fantastic achievement that Jens and Max managed to finish fifth in the second race despite this. Overall the weather undoubtedly helped us a little bit too. Unfortunately, after starting well in the second race, Dominik was spun round by a rival and dropped way down the field. This meant that he and Claudia came away with nothing and lost their lead in the drivers' standings. But at least we were able to defend first place in the team standings.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “It's a shame that I was spun round right at the start of the race on Sunday. After that it was almost impossible to make it into the points since it is extremely difficult to overtake on this track. The ninth place on Saturday was ok, but overall we weren't ever really quick enough here. The car drove well, but the lap times just didn't follow suit.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “I'm very pleased with the fifth place in the race on Sunday. My sixth place in qualifying was really good when you think that the car was only ready at the last minute after our accident in the free practice session. No doubt the rain helped me. I was even hoping for more of it on Sunday, then I might have been able to make it onto the podium. But at least we made sure that we kept the lead in the team standings. That's a good basis for the next race weekend at the Sachsenring.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” arrives at the Nürburgring as championship leader

Following the successful ADAC GT Masters weekend at the Slovakia Ring (SK), “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer now heads to round six at the Nürburgring (DE) leading both the Drivers’ and Team Championships. 

After winning the race on Saturday and finishing third on Sunday in Slovakia, Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) now have 134 points to their name, putting them four points clear of their closest rival Jaap van Lagen (NL). Last year, Hürtgen and Baumann won one of the two races at the Nürburgring. This time, however, they will carry more than just the ten kilograms of additional weight as a result of their third place at the Slovakia Ring. A further 15 kilograms of ballast must be loaded on board their car as a result of an adjustment to the Balance of Performance (BOP). That makes an additional 25 kilograms of weight, which will have a clear negative influence on the performance of the BMW Z4 GT3. 

Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE), in the second BMW Z4 GT3, will also suffer the consequences of the adjustment to the BOP. Despite this, they still have their sights set on continuing the positive trend the entire Schubert team has enjoyed in recent weeks. “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer tops the Team standings with 154 points. The two races at the Nürburgring both get underway at 12:00 on Saturday and Sunday. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “I am disappointed about the adjustment to the BOP. Over the course of the season, it has been clear to see that the success weight specified in the regulations already slows us down quite enough to ensure we are not in a position to win the following race. Therefore, I just cannot understand the decision to burden us with a further 15 kilograms on top of that. The good results we have enjoyed in recent weeks are in no way down to any technical advantage the car may have, but the hard work we have put in. We earned the good results thanks to partners like KW and meticulous work on the set-up of the cars. This kind of additional weight will undo all that hard work. However, we are on a good run at the moment as a team, and have fond memories of last year’s races here at the Nürburgring. We will once again work hard in the practice sessions, in order to make up for the disadvantage of the additional weight.” 

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “Firstly, I am pleased for the team that the last few weeks have produced the kind of success that they deserve for the work they put in over the course of the year. Despite our great weekend at the Slovakia Ring, the balance has shifted completely again. Given the new BOP, we can do nothing more than try to set the car up as well as possible, and to make the right decisions all the time.” 

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “After the good results of recent weeks, I am absolutely determined to continue this run at the Nürburgring. Unfortunately Jens and I can no longer challenge for the title in the Drivers’ Championship, but we will do everything in our power to win a race this season. Furthermore, we obviously want to help the team and our team-mates as much as possible in the title race.”

Hürtgen/Baumann and PIXUM Team Schubert take the lead in the ADAC GT Masters standings

After the one-two on Saturday, Pixum Team Schubert, powered by Jochen Schweizer, celebrated another podium position at the Slovakia Ring near Bratislava (SK) on Sunday. Claudia Hürtgen (DE) and Dominik Baumann (AT) finished in third place in their BMW Z4 GT3 at the tenth race of the ADAC GT Masters. This saw Hürtgen and Baumann, who won the race on Saturday, take the lead in the drivers’ standings. Their team-mates Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) – second on Saturday – suffered a setback: After a difficult race they retired their BMW Z4 GT3 on the final lap. 

Klingmann started from pole position, directly followed by Baumann in second place. However, both BMW Z4 GT3s lost several positions at the rolling start. The two drivers from PIXUM Team Schubert, powered by Jochen Schweizer, made use of the ensuing laps to get back on track to try and reach the podium. Baumann worked his way back into the top 3, but Klingmann dropped back into tenth place after a drive-through penalty. 

Baumann handed the BMW Z4 GT3 over to Hürtgen in third place, and she drove the car across the finish line in this position after 27 race laps. Meanwhile, Sandritter, in the second BMW Z4 GT3, attempted to gain some ground. However, a longer safety-car period prevented a chase. The race was only restarted one lap before the finish. In the battle for positions, a competitor clipped the rear left of Sandritter’s BMW Z4 GT3, sending him spinning into the gravel.

With 134 points, Hürtgen and Baumann now head the drivers’ standings of the ADAC GT Masters, with a lead of four points. In the team standings, PIXUM Team Schubert, powered by Jochen Schweizer, has also moved into first place with 154 points. The next round of the ADAC GT Masters will be held at the Nürburgring (DE) from 29th to 31st August. 

Stefan Wendl (team manager Schubert Motorsport): “Naturally we have drawn some extremely positive conclusions. We are delighted we were able to pick up so many points for the team and drivers’ standings this weekend. The hard work that the team put in to prepare for the second half of the season has paid off, firstly with the race in the VLN and then with the day of testing on the Slovakia Ring. We had built up a slight advantage for ourselves, which we implemented perfectly in qualifying and in the first race. In the second race on Sunday it was evident the added weight, which we had to take on after the success on Saturday, made things a lot more difficult for us. But the point of these additional weights is to prevent dominance. Therefore we are really pleased the race went the way it did. It was a bit of a shame for Jens and Max, who initially dropped down the field as a result of the drive-through penalty and then had a spin at the end. However, overall they can also be more than pleased with their performance this weekend. They were the clear pace setters. I will, therefore, be building on this so that we will also have two strong races in the remaining events.” 

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “We went into the race weekend with the aim of picking up as many points as possible. It’s fantastic that it was enough to take the lead in the standings. However, there are still 150 points for the taking in the remaining races. We will keep fighting and Team Schubert has already planned the next two tests. We will have smiles on our faces in the cockpit and know that we will be as focussed in our preparations for the coming races as we were at the Slovakia Ring.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “As expected the start was very difficult, since the straight on the Slovakia Ring is very long. Therefore we knew the more powerful cars behind us would go on the attack. But after that we were able to make our way back up the field. The drive-through penalty was unfortunate for me. You’re not allowed to improve your sector time when the yellow flags are out and I braked and took my foot off the gas. However, in the previous laps I was involved in some duels, which meant that I was slower in this sector and, as a result of that, I narrowly improved my sector time. I feel bad as we had an extremely good car and, based on our performance, we would definitely have been able to make it onto the podium. At the end, after the restart, we had a collision while the field was close together. However, I’m heading home with a good feeling. We secured a double pole and celebrated a one-two on Saturday. This is why I’m looking forward to the next round at the Nürburgring.”

One-two at the Slovakia Ring: dream result for PIXUM Team Schubert

“PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer finished first and second in the ninth race of the ADAC GT Masters at the Slovakia Ring, near Bratislava (SK): Claudia Hürtgen (DE) and Dominik Baumann (AT) overcame temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius to clinch victory, just 0.637 seconds ahead of the second BMW Z4 GT3, driven by Max Sandritter (DE) and Jens Klingmann (DE). 

A late safety car phase just 20 minutes before the end of the race set up a thrilling climax. Despite the heat, Baumann kept his cool at the re-start and held on for victory. The one-two represents a perfect start for the drivers from “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer after the long summer break in the ADAC GT Masters. 

While Sandritter claimed pole position for Saturday’s race in qualifying on Friday, Klingmann will start from the front of the grid on Sunday – followed in second place by Baumann/Hürtgen. Going into the race from these promising positions, “PIXUM Team Schubert” definitely has its sights set on another good result tomorrow. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “It just doesn’t get any better than this. We knew that the Slovakia Ring was the kind of circuit that would really suit us. However, it is still surprising just how well things are working out. You cannot plan for this kind of thing. However, what you can do in motor racing is prepare meticulously for an event – and that is definitely what we did in the run-up to this ADAC GT Masters weekend. We could not take full advantage of the test day on Thursday, meaning we were not perfectly prepared going into qualifying. Given that, things went very well, with pole positions for both races. The first race ran extremely smoothly. Every one of our drivers produced very impressive performances. On top of that came our strategy, which worked perfectly. It was clear to us that we would struggle to overtake the Corvettes on the track, so we changed our tactics and pulled both cars into the pits early. It paid off, and we led the race with both cars again after the stops. In the end, the safety car phase made life exciting again, but Dominik and Jens were able to coolly complete the one-two. I am particularly proud to be Team Manager of this team today.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” heads into the summer break on the back of good results

“PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer scored valuable points on the fourth race weekend of the ADAC GT Masters in Spielberg (AT), and is well-placed in both the Drivers’ and Teams’ competitions at the halfway point of the season. 

After a difficult race on Saturday, when they took to the track carrying an extra 30 kilograms and subsequently failed to finish in the points for the first time this season, Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) raced from eighth on the grid to finish fourth on Sunday. This result ensured they remained third in the Drivers’ Championship with 94 points. 

Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) produced consistently strong displays in both races at the Red Bull Ring, which does not actually suit the strengths of the BMW Z4 GT3 as much as other circuits. The duo came home fifth on Saturday and Sunday to pick up valuable points. With 42 points to their name, they have now climbed into the top-ten in the Drivers’ Championship, where they currently lie ninth. “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer goes into the summer break second in the Teams’ competition. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “This weekend has been running better than expected. Besides Oschersleben, the Red Bull Ring was the circuit that gave us the worst headaches before the season. Especially in qualifying all our drivers did perfect jobs. The races also went very well, except for Saturday’s race for our number 19 car. Unfortunately it has been pushed off the track twice on the first lap. All in all we can very pleased with the first half of the season, as we are right in the mix in both the Drivers’ and Teams’ competitions.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “All in all we can be happy with our points haul this weekend. We were fourth on Sunday and hardly lost any ground in the championship – and that on a circuit that, on paper, does not actually suit us and which we left empty-handed last year. Unfortunately we lost too much ground at the start on Saturday. With the extra weight on board, we could not make up what we lost.” 

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “After three difficult race weekends, it was nice to get back to successful ways with these two fifth places. The team’s decision to change the engine in our BMW Z4 GT3 after the race at the Lausitzring paid off. We had far more performance at our disposal and were able to compete on a par with the team’s other car. The two fifth places felt like podiums to me. I now go into the summer break in a positive frame of mind and am looking forward to racing at the Nürburgring 24 Hours in a BMW Z4 GT3 – something I have dreamt of for a long time – and to the second half of the ADAC GT Masters.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” out to tame the Red Bull Ring

“PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer travels to the fourth round of the ADAC GT Masters in Spielberg (AT) on the back of its first win of the season. The team from Oschersleben (DE) has a clear goal for the Red Bull Ring, which has been modernised ahead of the return of Formula One in a fortnight: to do considerably better than last year. 

Claudia Hürtgen (DE) and Dominik Baumann (AT) emerged empty-handed from both races in 2013, losing valuable ground in the Drivers’ Championship. This time the duo travels to the Steiermark region of Austria with the wind in its sails, following the first win of the year at the Lausitzring (DE) two weeks ago. However, they also have an extra 30 kilograms of weight on board the BMW Z4 GT3 as a result of their recent success. Despite this, the German/Austrian pair has its sights set on continuing the consistent form they have shown so far this season, and to add more valuable points to their total. Hürtgen and Baumann both currently lie third in the Drivers’ Championship on 82 points. 

Having endured a mediocre season so far, the priority for Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) is to get through the weekend with as few problems and as successfully as possible in the number 20 cars. The BMW Z4 GT3 lines up with a new engine, after the previous power unit overheated in the first race at the Lausitzring. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “We had a very bad weekend in Spielberg last year. We also had 30 extra kilos of weight on board back then, and went too far in our attempts to compensate for that. We picked up penalties and also made mistakes out on the track. This year, we have tried out some options for coping with the additional weight ahead of the race weekend. Let’s see if we can implement them. It will obviously be difficult again, as the circuit is just as unsuited to our car now as it was last year. However, we have set our sights on continuing the trend so far this season, and finishing in the points with both cars – including our number 20 car, which has a new engine after the overheating issues experienced at the Lausitzring. That certainly promises to give us more performance.” 

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “Whatever happens, we want to do significantly better than last year, when we arrived in Spielberg leading the championship but then failed to score a single point. Although our victory at the Lausitzring, which was a real boost for the entire team, means we line up with extra weight on board, I am still confident that we can score important points towards the championship this time around. The key to our good form at the races so far this season is that we have been very consistent and not made any mistakes. We want to continue in this manner at the Red Bull Ring.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “I know the Red Bull Ring from my early years in the ADAC GT Masters. I have also been out on the track at a number of BMW events. I am really looking forward to the circuit and the facilities around it, as it is situated in a beautiful area up in the hills. I am also intrigued by the modifications that have been made to incorporate the return of Formula One to Austria. From a sporting point of view, I really hope our run of bad luck will finally come to an end, and that we can set our sights on the podium. We analysed the car after the weekend at the Lausitzring and found a few things that can hopefully help us take a step forward.”

Baumann/Hürtgen claim maiden win and first pole position of the season

The spell has been broken: “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer claimed its first victory of the season on the third weekend of the ADAC GT Masters at the Lausitzring (DE). Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) dominated Sunday’s second race to come home first in the number 19 BMW Z4 GT3, 2.694 seconds ahead of René Rast (DE) and Kelvin van der Linde (ZA) in their Audi. 

Baumann had previously secured the first pole of the season in Friday’s qualifying, but was passed by the Corvette of Jeroen Bleekemolen (NL) at the rolling start. He soon regained the lead, courtesy of an impressive overtaking manoeuvre, and had opened up a lead of over seven seconds by the time he pulled into the pits to swap drivers. Hürtgen then brought the car home first to claim the pair’s maiden win of the year without any major problems. Having finished fourth to narrowly miss out on the podium in Saturday’s opening race, the duo is now third in the overall standings with 82 points. 

Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) endured a less successful weekend in the number 20 BMW Z4 GT3. A technical problem caused them to retire on Saturday. However, they did produce a strong performance to climb from eighth on the grid to finish sixth in race two, picking up eight points towards the Drivers’ Championship in the process.  

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “Congratulations to the entire team, who did a superb job. We have been knocking on the door of the podium all season, and finally everything came together and we were able to score our first win of the season. Everyone is hugely relieved. We knew that we would surrender the lead to the Corvette at the start, as it accelerates much better. With that in mind, our goal was to defend second place in turn one. That worked well, and Jeroen was then very fair when Dominik went on the attack. Dominik was then able to open up a lead on fresh tyres. That was all part of our tactics, and Claudia then did a very good job of maintaining that lead through to the finish on older tyres. Both drivers were brilliant this weekend. Our number 20 car was not far off in terms of performance, but it is a very different story when you have to start from the middle of the pack after an unfortunate qualifying, rather than being able to pull clear at the front of the field. We will now take a close look to determine whether the number 20 suffered any engine damage when it retired on Saturday, in order to ensure that we can compete with both cars in perfect condition again in Spielberg.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “Another great weekend for us – and finally the first win and first pole position. I am delighted. I was well aware that I would not stand a chance against the Corvette next to me at the start. Therefore, I just focussed on what I had to do. After that I knew I had to get back in front of the Corvette nice and early, because I was considerably quicker and would otherwise have lost a lot of time. The subsequent overtaking manoeuvre was very important in the context of the entire race.” 

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “As on the first two race weekends of the season, we got the maximum out of the BMW Z4 GT3. The fact that this was enough to win this time around is obviously very nice for the entire team. For me, it was very comforting to take over the car with such a large lead on Sunday. Dominik really did an outstanding job. I was able to concentrate on bringing home the win.” 

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “All in all that was a disappointing weekend. We were slower than our other car, which is obviously not satisfying, as that car is our first and most important reference. The aim now is to work hard together with the team to ensure we improve this situation by the next race weekend in Spielberg. Sunday’s sixth place was a half-decent way to end the weekend. The situation behind the Corvette, which held everyone up, was a difficult one. I then benefitted from the collision between the Mercedes and the Corvette, and was able to make up three places on the final lap. On Saturday I had to swerve onto the grass to avoid another Corvette, which had spun. The grass clogged up the radiator on the BMW Z4 GT3 and the engine overheated. That is why I had to retire from the race.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” travels to the Lausitzring with fond memories

The Lausitzring (DE) hosts the third race weekend of the season in the ADAC GT Masters: “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer heads to the EuroSpeedway with fond memories, as Claudia Hürtgen (DE) and Dominik Baumann (AT) finished runner-up in both races there last year. After a good start to the season, the same duo now has its sights set on picking up more valuable points at the Lausitzring. Hürtgen and Baumann are currently fourth in the Drivers’ Championship with 45 points each. 

Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) in the number 20 car are looking to continue the upwards trend they showed at the latest race weekend in Zandvoort (NL), when they came home seventh in the BMW Z4 GT3 in both races. Both races at the Lausitzring are set to get underway at 12:00 on Saturday and Sunday.  

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “We may indeed have had a perfect race weekend in Lausitz with the number 19 car last year. However, to assume from that that we will automatically be just as successful there this year would be a mistake. The strengths of our BMW Z4 GT3 do not come into play to quite the same extent at the Lausitzring as they do at other circuits. With this in mind, we must wait and see whether it is possible to repeat 2013’s results against our very strong opponents. However, we have tested there and come up with a very good balance for our cars. Therefore, we travel to Lausitz with great optimism.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “Last year’s round at the Lausitzring was outstanding for us. However, I think there are even better drivers in our rivals’ cockpits this season, so we can assume that we will not be gifted anything. The circuit is not ideally suited to our car, but we should still do well. For me personally, the priority is to immediately get 100 per cent out of the BMW Z4 GT3 after my outing in the VLN on the Nordschleife last weekend. Every hundredth of a second counts on a track like the Lausitzring.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “I very much enjoy driving at the Lausitzring and compete this weekend with my sights set on finally claiming the first podium of the season. That will definitely not be easy: as well as needing a lot of traction, which the BMW Z4 GT3 has, the circuit also demands a high top speed. We will have to wait and see where we stand compared to our rivals in that regard. It would definitely help to have a good qualifying and start from well forward on the grid.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” comes through water fights on the North Sea coast

Two races, two water fights: the second race weekend of the season in the ADAC GT Masters was a slippery affair for the drivers in action for “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer. Heavy rain and strong wind made both races a huge challenge. Claudia Hürtgen (DE) and Dominik Baumann (AT) mastered the conditions superbly in the number 19 BMW Z4 GT3, as did their team-mates Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) in the number 20 car. Both duos finished in the points on Saturday and Sunday. 

The way both cars fought back on Saturday was particularly impressive. A difficult qualifying meant Hürtgen started the race from down in 18th place. However, she coped so well with the rain that she was able to pass one car after another in the opening stages of the race. When she handed the car over to Baumann in the middle of the race, they were baring down on a podium finish. They eventually came home fourth. The duo in the number 19 car finished fifth in Sunday’s second race, which was also dominated by rain. 

Sandritter was actually in line to start Saturday’s race from sixth after an impressive qualifying. However, a technical problem on the car meant he had to start from the very back of the grid. Like Hürtgen, Sandritter set off on a spectacular fightback and had nearly progressed into the points by the time Klingmann took over the driving duties. He was then able to bring the number 20 BMW Z4 GT3 home in seventh place. The duo then matched that result on Sunday. 

Hürtgen and Baumann are fourth with 45 points in the Drivers’ Championship. Klingmann and Sandritter, meanwhile, picked up their first points of the season after an unfortunate opener in Oschersleben (DE). 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “I am very happy with this weekend’s results. In those difficult conditions, to score points with both cars in both races was the most we could hope for. The fightback on Saturday was absolutely fantastic. The BMW Z4 GT3 was as swift as a weasel, and our drivers did a flawless job. Thanks to the dampers provided by our partner KW, we were able to set up both cars superbly for the circuit and conditions. We scored valuable points, but are also well aware that we need to finish on the podium in the future if we are to stick with the front-runners in the championship. Unfortunately it is difficult to stay with Porsche and Audi, who are incredibly quick even with their performance weights.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “The conditions were extreme. We always looked very good when there was not too much water on the track, but as soon as the rain became heavier we had to fight hard. That was particularly the case on Saturday. Claudia was able to make up an awful lot of places when the track was not too wet at the start. All I could do then in heavier rain was defend my position. I am very happy with the points we scored. However, it is tough to compete with Porsche and Audi with the current Balance of Performance.” 

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “Twice in the points – that is a start. We are not yet where we want to be, but the performance of the car is already good now. I was obviously angry at first to have to start from the pit lane on Saturday, but the fightback was great fun. Some of the duels were really special. The track conditions were much more difficult on Sunday. There was a lot of aquaplaning. That is what caused my spin, but fortunately there were no major consequences.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” ready for the dunes of Zandvoort

“PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer is completing its final preparations for the second round of the ADAC GT Masters. Races three and four of the season will take place this weekend (10th and 11th May) in Zandvoort, Netherlands. The circuit, which is nestled in the dunes on the North Sea coast, last hosted the ADAC GT Masters in 2012. Team Manager Stefan Wendl’s outfit will once again compete with two BMW Z4 GT3s in Zandvoort. The number 19 car will be driven by Claudia Hürtgen (DE) and Dominik Baumann (AT). Driving duties in the number 20 BMW Z4 GT3 will be shared by Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE). 

When the team’s home circuit of Oschersleben (DE) hosted the opening round of the season a fortnight ago, Hürtgen and Baumann finished third in Sunday’s race to claim their first podium of the year. The same duo had ended Saturday’s opening race in sixth place after an impressive fightback. Klingmann and Sandritter were unlucky at the season-opener: they had to settle for 20th in race one, after Sandritter was hit by another competitor. Klingmann was then involved in a pile-up as the result of a chain reaction at the start of the second race. Fortunately he was uninjured, but the BMW Z4 GT3 suffered some serious damage. He and Sandritter are now looking to get their ADAC GT Masters season off and running again in Zandvoort. The races on Saturday and Sunday at the circuit in the dunes on the North Sea coast of the Netherlands both begin at 12:00 local time. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “Firstly I must say a big thank you to our crew of mechanics, who have managed to return the number 20 BMW Z4 GT3 to perfect condition following its crash. All the damage has been repaired, and the crash will not affect this weekend in Zandvoort at all. That was our most important job between the first two rounds of the season. All in all, we are very optimistic looking ahead to Zandvoort. As we have shown in the past, the characteristics of the circuit suit our car. We got the maximum out of the car in Oschersleben, and had not expected to pick up so many points prior to the race. Therefore, we should now also be able to put in a good performance in Zandvoort with the BMW Z4 GT3.” 

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “We would obviously like to continue in Zandvoort where we left off in Oschersleben. I think Zandvoort is a good circuit for the BMW Z4 GT3. We have been strong there in the past. Sure, everyone will be starting from scratch again there, but we showed in Oschersleben that we can compete at the front of the field, and that should be our goal for Zandvoort too.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “I can still feel the effects of the crash a little, but all in all I was actually rather lucky that it was nothing more serious. We go into the race weekend with high expectations. As far as speed is concerned, we are definitely right up there. We were quick in Oschersleben too, but were unfortunately unable to show that due to the crashes. Because of that, I have a good feeling about Zandvoort. The circuit is far more suited to the BMW Z4 GT3, particularly as aerodynamics play a larger role there. I hope everything runs smoothly this time and that we end up on the podium.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” on the podium at home race

“PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer finished the opening weekend of the ADAC GT Masters season in their home town of Oschersleben with a podium place in the race on Sunday. Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) in the number 19 BMW Z4 GT3 made up a place to finish third after starting from fourth. In the first race on Saturday, Baumann and Hürtgen started eighth, but lost a lot of places at the first corner. After a strong recovery they managed to finish sixth to secure some vital points. 

Jens Klingmann (DE) and Max Sandritter (DE) in car number 20 were extremely unlucky in both races and didn't manage to finish in the points in Oschersleben. Klingmann experienced a moment of terror on Sunday when he was involved in a serious accident at the start. In a chain reaction he was hit by another vehicle in a pile-up and was forced into the wall. Fortunately Klingmann was relatively unscathed. However, the BMW Z4 GT3 was badly damaged and was unable to restart the race. On Saturday, Sandritter was hit by another competitor in the first few metres of the race, which broke a rim on his car. He managed to make it back to the pits, but after being lapped neither he nor Klingmann stood a chance. They only managed to finish in 20th. 

Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “Overall I'm very pleased with the performance of the BMW Z4 GT3. We knew the track in Oschersleben wasn't going to be ideal for the car, so did a lot of testing to work hard on our weaknesses. It paid off. Both cars had the same speed and showed that they can be at the sharp end of the field. With number 19 we did the best we could on this track. I'm delighted with the podium at our home race. Unfortunately we were terribly unlucky with number 20 in both races. That type of accident at the start on Sunday is common in the ADAC GT Masters. The competition is so strong that it is always extremely close. All the team bosses agree that the lights should have gone green earlier.” 

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “Before the weekend we said that the key to this season would be to score points in every race. We did really well here in Oschersleben. Unfortunately on Saturday Claudia was forced into the gravel and fell back to 19th. It was an amazing achievement that we managed to finish sixth from there. On Sunday I was lucky at the start. I glanced in my rear mirror and saw a giant dust cloud right behind me. I didn't manage to get my tyres to the perfect temperature for the restart so fell back from second place to third. However, we were able to bring home third place comfortably.” 

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “Everything hurts after the severe crash, but the medical centre gave me the all-clear. Apart from a few bruises, I'm fine. I started well and beginning to make up places. Suddenly the Audi came crashing into me from the left-hand side at a right angle. I couldn't do anything and just tensed all my muscles and waited for it to be over. It was a really unlucky starting accident. The rest of our weekend was also unfortunate. Max was hit at the start on Saturday, which broke a rim. At least the qualifying sessions showed us that we are among the front runners in terms of speed. That's encouraging for the coming races.”

“PIXUM Team Schubert” ready for new ADAC GT Masters season

This weekend, “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer commences its second season in the ADAC GT Masters. Thanks to the support of its partners, the team from Oschersleben (DE) is once again able to line up with two BMW Z4 GT3s and two strong
pairs of drivers. Dominik Baumann (AT) and Claudia Hürtgen (DE) will take a second crack at the title in the number 19 car. In 2013, the duo was in contention to win the Driver and Team classifications right down to the season finale in Hockenheim (DE). Max Sandritter
shares the driving duties in the number 20 BMW Z4 GT3 with the only newcomer to the team, Jens Klingmann (DE). Klingmann made a guest appearance with “PIXUM Team Schubert” powered by Jochen Schweizer at the Sachsenring (DE) in 2013, and impressed by
finishing first and third. He replaces Jörg Müller (DE), who has switched to Japan.

The ADAC GT Masters kicks off on Schubert Motorsport’s doorstep in Oschersleben. The two races in the Magdeburger Börde region of Germany both begin at 12:00 on Saturday and Sunday. Just in time for their home races Schubert Motorsport’s updated website
(www.schubert-motorsport.de) will be published next weekend. Stefan Wendl (Team Manager Schubert Motorsport): “Three quarters of our team is the same as last year. As Jörg Müller has moved to Japan, where he will support BMW Sports Trophy Team Studie, it was a logical step for us to move to secure the services of Jens Klingmann. He knows our team and did an outstanding job last year when he stood in for the injured Müller. I am confident we have two very competitive pairs of drivers. Our goal is clear: we want to compete for the titles in the Driver and Team competitions.”

Dominik Baumann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “After last season’s success, I am very happy to be able to line up together with Schubert Motorsport for a second year in the ADAC GT Masters. While we may have come up just short of winning the title in 2013, my
performances proved good enough to make it into BMW Motorsport’s squad for the Nürburgring 24 Hours. That is an important accolade for me. I am confident going into the new ADAC GT Masters season. The experience we gained last year means we ought to be
well prepared for the first two races in Oschersleben. However, only once we get out on the track will we discover just how we compare to our rivals.”

Claudia Hürtgen (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 19): “I am really pleased that we have held on to the combination of Schubert Motorsport, the BMW Z4 GT3, Dominik and me. We have analysed last season’s weaknesses and are well prepared. The goal is to once again be in
contention for the title come the end of the season.”

Jens Klingmann (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20): “I am really looking forward to contesting a whole season in one series again in 2014. Thank you very much to the Schubert team and BMW Motorsport for giving me this opportunity. I love driving on the Nürburgring-
Nordschleife, and at the Spa 24 Hours, but to contest an entire season in one series is a whole different challenge. I know the team and my team-mate Max really well since my guest appearance at the Sachsenring in 2013. My goal now is to be involved in the battle for the
title in my first complete season with Schubert Motorsport.”

Max Sandritter (BMW Z4 GT3, car number 20):
“Last year was a learning experience for me. The BMW Z4 GT3 was a whole new world compared to the cars I had driven previously. Jörg Müller helped me to understand the car. The objective for 2014 is to consistently
achieve good results alongside Jens Klingmann, and to aim for at least the top five in the championship.”
