In Race 2 in Oschersleben, Bonaldi Motorsport crews obtained only half recovery due both to the safety car, which repeatedly joined the circuit, and a light crash during the final part of the race.
The Qualifying Session for Race 2 of the first weekend of the ADAC GT Masters season started in particular conditions: the racetrack was wet due to heavy night rain. But it was clear that it was going to dry during the twenty minutes of the Session. The first yellow Huracàn to join the fray was the no. 32 driven by Florian Spengler and Emanuele Zonzini. But the first best result was made by the other Bonaldi Motorsport crew composed by Patrick Kujala and Milos Pavlovic: absolute twenty-first result was reached. The fifth speeding lap was Pavlovic’s best one who was then in fifth position. But the Session was then stopped for a couple of minutes. At the end of the Qualifying Sessions Kujala-Pavlovic placed twenty-fifth while Spengler-Zonzini placed thirty-second.
Race 2 started in front of an amazing flow of supporters and in a less weak sun. At the first chicane the Race Direction waved the red flag due to a touch in the leading positions. The race started again behind the safety car and the race was shorten of five minutes. For the Bonaldi Motorsport’s drivers Pavlovic and Zonzini was increasingly difficult to recover. Then, after only two laps from the race restart the safety car joined the circuit again… At the half of the race Kujala replaced Pavlovic while Zonzini left his car drive to Spengler. The two crews were placed twentieth and twenty-fourth, respectively, when the safety car appeared for the third time. The race started again and Kujala and Spengler did their best to recover but their results were different: on one hand the recovery by the Finnish driver was cancelled by the touch with another car which forced him to go back to the pit to change a sheared tyre. On the other hand the German driver obtained the absolute fifteenth place.
The weekend in Oschersleben clearly showed us how competitive this championship is; that’s why Qualifying Sessions are fundamental. It is in these Sessions that we must improve
