A1 Team Germany as newly crowned champions at finale

A1 Team Germany travels to the finale at Brands Hatch as newly crowned World Cup winners in the A1 GP World Cup of Motorsport. At the eleventh round, staged within sight of the Gates of London between the 27 and 29 April, the Willi Weber managed team targets yet another top result. The team holds an unassailable 23 point lead over the field of 21 other nations since the last round in Shanghai.

Nico Hulkenberg will be the sole representative in A1 Team Germany colours at Brands Hatch. Christian Vietoris, who performed faultlessly as the team's second driver during the Friday "Rookie Sessions" and as race driver at the ninth round in Mexico, starts his new motorsport season on the same weekend in Germany.

"After winning the championship, Nico now has the chance to drive without any pressure whatsoever", emphasises Willi Weber. "After dutifully winning the championship, now it's show time: I would be happy if we could bid farewell to both the fans and season with a dream result. Let's also not forget it is the home race for David Sears' race team that enters our car."

The circuit in Great Britain, the 4.22 kilometre version of which is used, was the scene of the inaugural round of the A1 GP World Cup of Motorsport on 25 September 2005. Eighty thousand enthusiastic fans followed the spectacle from track side.

"It'll be a fantastic opportunity for me to present the entire squad with an outstanding result as a way of thanking them for the excellent teamwork throughout the season," describes Nico Hulkenberg his feelings. "To race on such a circuit steeped in tradition is really something very special. I'm already looking forward to the enthusiastic British public, the circuit and the race."

Live qualifying and race reports from the final round are not, as usual, only broadcast on Premiere TV in Germany. ZDF also broadcasts a report about the race weekend in the Sportreportage (sport show).
