Why Button's DTM success chances are out of his hands

By:

One is set up for sprint and one for endurance. So how exactly are the DTM and SUPER GT going to make their joint race a fair battle at Hockenheim this weekend? Jenson Button's chances of victory depend on it.

Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button opened the press conference ahead of the first DTM-versus-SUPER GT racing weekend by telling everyone to give themselves a "pat on the back" for getting the unified Class 1 to this stage.

He's right, if only because the next step for DTM and SUPER GT looks daunting as the practice sessions begin at Hockenheim, with no-one any the wiser as to how the two different series will match up.
