Verdens bilsportsinteresserte har sine øyne rettet mot Tyskland og Hockenheim denne helgen. Midt i formel 1-sirkuset befinner også Dennis Hauger seg for å kjøre i det tyske Formel 4-mesterskapet.
Etter sterk kjøring nylig i det italienske mesterskapet, blir det spennende å se om Dennis og hans team Van Amersfoort Racing klarer å følge opp nå i helgen.
Det er tredje runde i mesterskapet som kjøres, og Dennis Hauger ligger på en 9. plass sammenlagt etter de to første og seks kjørte finaler. Totalt skal det kjøres 20 finaler i løpet av sesongen.

After two impressive events recently in the Italian F4 series, Red Bull Juniors Dennis Hauger and Jonny Edgar are back in the ADAC championship this weekend at the Hockenheimring. They have the added incentive of racing alongside Formula One at the German Grand Prix.
Hauger to carry on with balanced pace
“The last few weekends in the Italian F4 have gone very well and it is important for me to bring that more stable approach to the German Championship,” explained Hauger, the 16-year-old Norwegian who has started to dominate in Italian F4 and plans to add to his first ADAC victory, gained at the Red Bull Ring.
“I can carry on with that stable approach and have a good weekend here. As we are at the German GP I know that many drivers will be wanting to impress and trying extra hard. For me it is important to keep it solid and pick up good points.”
“I know which way the track goes but I don’t have the same track knowledge as some of the drivers do and there is not much free practice this weekend so it is important to make a good job right from the start. We already have a good base setting now but we need to work on the details,” added the Van Amersfoort Racing driver.
Edgar to carry on improving
“We did a one day test here in varying conditions, wet and dry,” stated 15-year-old Briton Edgar. “It was enough for me to learn the circuit and I think we have a pretty good set-up to start this weekend with. I like the track, it’s cool. It will be a lot of fun.”
“Things have been going pretty well the last few weekends so I think we just have to carry on. I know that we need to make a good job of qualifying and then put in good laps at the start of the race. That is what I am concentrating on now and that will give us the good results.”
“It’s great to have the experience of being here at a Grand Prix. My favourite driver is Max Verstappen so I am very much looking forward to being at the same event,” added the Jenzer Motorsport driver.
