The Midnight Motorsport drivers share their thoughts following a day of intensive testing at a cold and damp Hockenheimring

Lukas was unfortunately unavailable for comment with the German having to race off to an alternate engagement.


"We knew going into today that it would be cold and damp, the guys had somechangeableconditions this morning but fortunately for me, my run was able to be completed under blue skies.

It was much the same as Valencia, simply a case of getting to know the car and the tyres ahead of the first race of the season. Not really much to say about today, everything ran smoothly and as predicted, we couldn't have asked for more.

I'm looking forward to Imola next week where we hope to be able to see how the car copes in slightly warmer conditions."


"The second pre-season test all went according to plan today, despite a light shower towards the end of our planned running. I spent most of the session tucked up behind Dave (Carr-Smith) - deja vu from Road America last year - as we tried to collect some data on the effects of running in the draft and turbulent air of another car. As the rain came down at the end of our run we tried pushing a little harder to tip the tyres over the cliff but never quite got there. Never-the-less, we completed our program and collected a vast haul of data which will be crucial for maximising our team's Research and Development efforts.

I'm looking forward to Imola next week. The weather looks a little more predictable than what we experienced here today, and a little warmer too which is always nice."
