Statement from Florian Hebel, Wieth Racing team manager:

"As we discoverd the race engine of our 550 is damaged very heavily. Unfortunately it will be impossible to repair it in time for Jarama, because new parts have to be developed and manufactured as it showed up that the used ones cannot stand the extreme stress. It does not make sense to start in Jarama with an underpowered original 550 engine as we did at Nurburg."

"We are very confident that everything will be ready for Estoril and that we will be able not only to stand the three hours there, but also can reach a good position at the end."
