Renger van der Zande press release

The Mercedes driver is confident that he can build on the ninth place starting position he achieved at the Nürburgring.

"I have raced in England a lot in the past, which makes it extra special to come here with DTM," Van der Zande comments on his way to the circuit.

"I am hopeful that we can continue our upward trend at Brands. For this to happen, I must be up front in qualifying because overtaking is almost impossible at this track; we’re racing on the Indy circuit, which basically has only five corners. You have almost no time to rest, it’s non-stop.

I am hopeful that we can continue our upward trend at Brand

It promises to be a hot weekend, so levels of attrition could be high, but I’m very excited and can’t wait to get back in the car."

The first practice session at Brands Hatch begins at 13:00 local time (BST) on Friday.
