Thomas Jäger, Riley Motorsports – WeatherTech Racing #50: “It was clear to see that we certainly didn’t have an advantage with the BoP. Unfortunately, we lacked top speed. But the race has also shown that one can rely on the Mercedes-AMG GT3. The car was competitive and we were able to race among the front runners without any problems. During the night, conditions were extremely difficult and then, such a spin can happen. Too bad, but that’s racing. Otherwise, we would have been in contention for victory.”
