The conditions today have certainly not played in the cards after the injury or disease breaks both. Nevertheless, I have hoped for a bit more than a point. In the Youngster Cup we were with two pilots in the realm of possibility, Jonas Larsen is a safe driver points, with Emil Jepsen we have to work so he grabs the quality. The performances of both my Junior Cup pilots who voted me positive. Bastian Boegh dam has to be what he is capable shown in the qualification. He was very unlucky in the race. Pascal young man who drove two constant race. With him you can see quite a significant development, which of course makes me very happy. Yannick Scheuer also failed to qualify what was also the first goal. Unfortunately, he could only finish the 1st run. With my boys in the ADAC Junior Cup I was very pleased. "
