5th + 6th run 23th - 25th of June 1995 200 Miles of Nuernberg Norisring

1st and 2nd free practice session

8 - Nicola Larini "I hadn't the possiblity to do too many laps, as we had to do a lot of work at the car. This track doesn't offer many possibilities do prove your driving abilities, but it will possibly produce some brake problems."

7 - Alessandro Nannini "I think, I'll get some big problems to achieve a top fifteen placement during the qualifying. We were not able to work out a fitting set-up, as I could do only very few laps in both free practice sessions because of electronic problems."

19 - Michael Bartels "I had an engine problem in session two, so I could go out only once. That's why my set-up won't be perfect. But hopefully this won't brake me too much. As long, as I'll get a new powerful engine for the qualifying session, everything will be alright."

6 - Kurt Thiim "Gear number six was too short, so we got to change it. As well I'm not very happy with the set-up, now we got to think about possibilities to improve it."

17 - Ellen Lohr "It was a real mess, after only one lap of session one my gearbox stopped working. So we changed it, but the transmission of the new one was too short, already far in front of the "Grundig-Kehre" the engine reached the rev-limiter. But there was not time to change it again, I had to do some laps after all. Regarding this, my time was quite alright. But the balance of performance is really astonishing in Class 1, two tenths of a second may mean a much better position in the starting grid."

9 - Manuel Reuter "Again I'm driving another car. During session one I had electric problems, the voltage was too low, which produced ABS problems and misfire."

20 - JJ Lehto "After having won Le Mans I'm in a really good mood. Now I have won the second most important race of the world, now I only got to win the Indy 500. Of course this is motivating for DTM too. In the two sessions I had some diferential problems and an oil leak. So I couldn't do as many laps as I wanted to."
