"From seventh position I could gain one position in the first lap. In the first laps I could easily follow get the speed of the leading cars, but had to go hard on tyres and brakes, therefore I had to slow down a little later on. This has been the reason why Chris Mamerow could pass me again. For the rest of the race I concentrated to hold my seventh position and finish like this, which I could do finally. I could not reach more today, even if I expected so by myself, therefore I am happy about the result", commented the Schnabl-pilot after the race. The people from Premiere were delighted. The TV-channel installed a live camera into the 390HP Porsche and gave the 20 year old driver a microphone in his helmet so he could tell the spectators about the race from his own perspective. "I think I did a good job for Premiere as well and could tell the people more about the work behind the steering wheel," said Christopher after the race. "The small did not disturb my concentration for the race. Both of the commentators just spoke to me if the situation in the race has been clear and they did not disturb me." "No wonder, one of the two commentators has been Marc Basseng, who himself has a lot of experience in Porsche racing cars and he knew when the situation has been OK to get in contact."
