Sven Müller looking forward to the ADAC GT Masters

Porsche works driver's debut in the Super Sports Car League

Porsche works driver set to debut in this year's GT Masters. The 25-year-old is looking forward to the fresh challenge.

Müller knows for sure that: "The ADAC GT Masters is one of the world's strongest racing series. The fact that there are so many different manufacturers taking part makes the line-up very interesting. I've followed the races regularly in recent years and have always been impressed.”"

The German, who won both the Porsche Carrera Cup and the Porsche Supercup in 2016 and was subsequently invited to join the Porsche manufacturer's works squad, has found an old acquaintance at his new team, Precote Herberth Motorsport: "My race engineer will again be Michael Rühs, I've already successfully worked with him during two years spent contesting Porsche one-make cups, which augurs well for the future." Müller is already very familiar with the Porsche 911 GT3 R from several outings in other race series. "It's a lot of fun and even easier to drive than the Cup car, because it's got ABS and a traction control. It's even faster, as it's lighter and has more power and downforce."

Müller thinks a lot of his new team-mate, Robert Renauer: "I've known him for several years. However, we've only ever competed against each other so far - most recently, this January in the 24-hour race in Dubai, where we both drove the opening stint. He was very quick. I'm confident that we have a strong package for this season, especially as I already know all the tracks, even though it's been seven years since I last lined up at the Sachsenring."

Müller is returning to the ADAC motor racing fold in 2017. It's been two years since he lined up in the Formel ADAC where he finished third overall behind current Formula 1 driver Pascal Wehrlein. The young driver also intends to finish on the podium in the ADAC GT Masters. "That's the goal, for sure! But being realistic, you can only get an idea of where you stand after the first two race weekends. As there are so many new teams and drivers, we'll just have to wait and see before we can assess the standard of performance."
