Bartels/Bertolini Get Further Ahead in the Classification

Their sixth place in the Nuerburgring Championship Race in the FIA GT1 World Championship earns the Bartels/Bertolini duo more points, setting them further in the driver’s standings with an advantage of 14 points ahead of the next set of drivers.

After starting out from tenth place, Maserati MC12 no. 1, driven by Bertolini, was able to advance three positions right after the starting line until it reached fifth. Going very fast, Bartels continued to push the car to gain more ground, but his maneuver was limited due to rules in force regarding the car’s weight and restrictor plates.



Comments after the Championship Race
Andrea Bertolini: "We started a little way back in tenth but I attacked straight away and managed to gain three positions. "


Post qualifying comments
Bert Longin – “I am happy with this session as I got through to Q2 and set the sixth fastest time in Q1. I get on well with my new partner, Alessandro Pier Guidi. He is very quick and calm."


Comments after the pre-qualifying
Alex Müller - "I am very pleased with the opportunity I have been given to race for a second season with Maserati. "
