Congratulations to Hankook tyres for a thrilling debut at the start of the new DTM season.
The South Korean tyres manufacturer helped make the Hockenheim event – which pulled in 58,000 spectators – an action-packed race.
Winner Bruno Spengler enthused: “My team has provided me with a great car and carried out the pit stops at the right moment. The Hankook tyres were also very good. Even though we are running a lot over the kerbs here at Hockenheim, the tyres remained consistent. That is really very goo.”
Ralf Schumacher, who finished in third, added: “Special thanks to Hankook! Somehow that seems to help a little bit. I think it is not natural for a new tyre manufacturer comes into a series and deliver a good and consistent tyre. Here at Hockenheim, we we had no problems at all during testing and racing. Thanks to Hanook for being here with us. I think this is a really good addition for the DTM.”
