Pressemelding: Nye muligheter for Hauger
Monza har vært scene for en rekke dramatiske bilsportsøyeblikk gjennom historien. Til helgen er Dennis Hauger klar for å være med på å skrive mer Monza-historie når han kjører årets nest siste runde av F2-mesterskapet.
24 av årets 28 løp er kjørt så langt, og til helgen er det klart for to nye spennende oppgjør i F2. Sprintløp på lørdag og hovedløp på søndag.
Det er mange muligheter på denne banen. Her kan det meste skje og det blir spennende, sier Dennis Hauger. Han ligger på en 12.plass sammenlagt med 85 poeng. Han endte opp med 3.plass i sprintløpet og 4. plass i hovedløpet på Zandvoort sist. Skal det bli nye topplasseringer på Monza?

Monza has been a scene of so many championship dramas over the years and the penultimate round of the F2 season is likely to add to that history.
Red Bull Juniors Dennis Hauger, Jehan Daruvala, Ayumu Iwasa and Liam Lawson all feel that they have a good deal more to take from the last 4 races of the year, starting this weekend.
Lawson looking to be towed to success
“It’s the temple of speed, always a special atmosphere and a very very high speed circuit,” enthuses the 20-year-old New Zealander. “The racing action is normally quite close because of the straights.”
“Qualifying is always quite frantic with everyone trying to get in position to get a tow. So I am expecting it to be pretty crazy.”
“It’s the third weekend in a row, we’ve had some highs and lows from the first two and we are determined to go out on a high in Monza going into the break before the final event of the season.”
Iwasa ready for another new track
“I’ve never driven at Monza,” explained the 20-year-old Japanese. “So it’s new but as we have seen in this season so far I have always been quick even if it has been the first time for me at some tracks. So I am not too worried about that.”
“As we have done all year I will prepare a lot with the engineers and the team, I do not expect it to be a problem.”
“We are going to Monza looking for another victory or at least to be on the podium.”
Daruvala keen to match earlier success
“Monza is a home race for Prema and a track that I go really well at so I am really looking forward to it,” asserts the 23-year-old Indian.
“Quali is all about getting into the right place at the right time for the tow. We have the experience, we have to use that and get it right but there is always a certain amount of luck involved, you cannot control what other people are doing.”
“It a place with wonderful atmosphere, a great place to end a full three weeks of racing.”
Hauger ready for more than a tow
“Lots of opportunities in the races,” states the 19-year-old Norwegian. “Slipstream obviously has a big role on this track. We have to get track position right in Quali.”
“It is also still important to maximise braking zones and everything else as well. We have to play it smart.”
“It’s a place with a lot of history and huge atmosphere. Very special.»
