Kotenok is another F1Wolf reader who went to see some live racing action last week. Kotenok went to the DTM days on the Barcelona track and during his walk around the paddock stumbled upon Norbert Haug, the main Mercedes guy in McLaren operation. He did not hesitate and decided to ask Mr. Haug some questions for this website (although he forgot to tell him the name of this site ). The interview was conducted in German, so what you read here is translation:
Q: Good afternoon Mr. Haug, I would like to wish you success! I would like to ask a small question for an F1 website, would you like to answer?
Haug tells ‘yes’ closing up the distance.
Q: Soon there will be the Grand Prix in Singapore, what is your opinion on the race?
A: What do you mean?
Q: Well, as a night race, for McLaren Mercedes, I would like to know how do you see the team’s expectations in there?
A: Well, yes we will race there with the F1 team, and then we will see about that there.
Not exactly revealing answer but well, that was a very difficult question in the first place .
I would probably be laughing my butt off reading this if not for my own experience giving a radio interview few months back. You feel you have all the answers all the questions up your sleeve but when it comes to producing the goods – ooops … not that easy.
Besides doing the brief interview Kotenok also took quite a lot of pictures. Here is the slideshow with all the DTM and F3 action. Alternatively you can see them all on Kotenok’s page on the F1Wolf Club. There are also some very nice paddock photos.
