Winner of the previous race at the Norisring in Nuremberg Robert Wickens (FREE MAN’S WORLD Mercedes AMG C-Coupé) posted a time of 1:29.148 minutes in qualifying. The Canadian will be in grid position 14 for the start of the fifth race of the season. “It’s been a rollercoaster weekend for me so far here in Moscow“, said Robert. “I was happy with the car in first practice, then we made some changes for the second session that didn’t work as we’d hoped. We put our heads together to find a solution before qualifying, and the car felt much better after that. Unfortunately, I still didn’t progress further than Q2.
My goal for the race now is to finish in the points. It won’t be easy, but I've started from further back before and still secured points. I’ll give it my best shot.“
