Dennis Hauger ready to add to his Hungaroring wins

The German Championship round here went well," explained the 16-year-old Norwegian who had a victory in the ADAC event at the Red Bull Ring and won two races in Hungary last weekend. "So I think we are well prepared for this. The weather forecast is a bit up and down, we had a wet session there in the ADAC weekend and I was quickest so that should not be a problem."

"There are always things that you can improve on, your driving and the car, so we will keep working. The key at the Red Bull Ring I think is that all the corners are different so putting them all together for the perfect lap is not easy," added the Van Amersfoort Racing driver.

Jonny Edgar keeps moving forward

"I just got here," said the 15-year-old Briton early on Thursday afternoon. "I like the track, we had a good German Championship round here and learnt quite a lot and then after the Hungaroring I am feeling quite confident that we can have a good weekend. I think we should have results at least as good."

"One of the things I hope for that we can improve on is the qualifying, I think that here should be a little easier as there should not me as many cars going slowly in qualifying. There is more room here so I think it will be easier."

"We didn't need to change the car very much through the weekend in Hungary and we'll see what happens here," added the Jenzer Motorsport driver.
