Sachsenring: Comments after Round 12

Observations from the paddock after Sunday's race

What the drivers had to say after the second of the weekend's two races.

Edoardo Mortara (BWT Mücke Motorsport, Mercedes-AMG GT3), P3 overall: "Considering that the Sachsenring weekend was my first in the ADAC GT Masters, I'm satisfied with today's result. It was a lot of fun discovering a whole new world. It would have been difficult to come away with a better result."

Sebastian Asch (BWT Mücke Motorsport, Mercedes-AMG GT3), P3 overall: "It was the maximum we could achieve today. More wasn't possible. We scored important points in the fight for the championship."

Patrick Assenheimer (Mercedes-AMG Team HTP Motorsport, Mercedes-AMG GT3), P4 overall and P3 in Junior class: "We're not happy. However, you have to admit, it was a pretty crazy restart. That's why Luca Stolz was able to out-accelerate and overtake us on the exit from the corner."

Maximilian Götz (Mercedes-AMG Team HTP Motorsport, Mercedes-AMG GT3), P4 overall, P3 in Junior class: "Our performance was good the whole weekend. However, it wasn't quite enough for a podium in the end. Sebastian Asch took advantage of a mistake made by Patrick in the race, which caused us to drop back down into fourth place at the finish line."

Marc Gassner (MRS GT-Racing, Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3), P16 overall, winner of Trophy class: "The car was surprisingly competitive. We thought we would struggle more here. I kept out of all the incidents at the start and was then able to gain a few more places due to a couple of collisions in front of me. After that, I was able to keep pace with the cars ahead, and we secured P16 by dint of our own efforts."

Remo Lips (MRS GT-Racing, Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3), P16 overall, winner of Trophy class: "The race went well until the restart, and then came the safety car period. I subsequently took a knock to the right-hand side of the car which got damaged as a result. Still, we managed to get to the finish line."
