Dino Lunardi: "I want to fight for the title"
Dino Lunardi (33 F) takes the FIA GT Championship with the winning car of the 2011 season, the BMW ALPINA B6, again. The Frenchman, who last year celebrated together with Alexandros Margaritis (27, Cologne), winning the drivers' title, starts on 30 March to 1 April at the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben, together with his new teammates, Belgian Maxime Martin (25), in the season. In an interview with ADAC Lunardi talks about his goals and expectations for the year 2012.
They have won the title, but now your goal may be only the first driver to repeat in the ADAC GT Masters success.
Dino Lunardi: "We, of course, firmly resolved to drive in this year again for the title with Maxime Martin I have a new team mates at my side I'm very happy about the goals to take along with him in attack... We've known for a long time and are already in various leagues competed against each other. So I know exactly how fast he is. "
Among her biggest opponents this season will certainly include Alexandros Margaritis, with which you have in the past year moved together to the title. It will feel strange intended to compete against him?
"It is certainly this year very interesting for us both. Of 2011, we were in the early season friends and have grown together over the season as brothers. I guess that this year will probably be somewhat different when we play against each other. Alex is a very professional race car driver. I have great respect for him and am looking forward to many nice duels on the track. "
ALPINA has your winning car, the BMW ALPINA B6, improved in recent months in detail. What can the fans expect from you and from ALPINA in the coming season?
"I am sure that we have this year a good chance and that with the BMW ALPINA B6 are still very well placed. It is in the expected high power density may not always be possible to race in front. Then it will be important continue to strategically and to score points. The competition does not sleep and I expect it will be even closer and more exciting than last year. There are also new brands such as McLaren and Aston Martin, not forgetting. that we have with YOKOHAMA a new tire partner . to make a prediction for the season, is impossible. I think we have to wait for the first free practice session at the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. "
How do you prepare for the new season?
"I have all winter to work as an instructor on a Eisrennstrecke in Val Thorens in the French Alps and not feel so out of practice. In addition to the ADAC GT Masters I will still run in three other championships throughout Europe and have already more than 25 Racing as calendars are. With the appropriate tests, I'll be so busy in the coming months very well. The ADAC GT Masters but has clearly priorities. For me it is the most powerful GT series in Europe and a must if you have a Professional GT-pilot. "
