Nürburg, Germany, July 02, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The outcome of the initial five races of the 2012 World Series by Renault (WSR) has definitely delivered some exciting - and unpredictable - results, with a different driver at each race taking the podium. Mikhail Aleshin is confident about the upcoming weekend, stating, “I have already had a pole position on the Nürburgring circuit, and I have competed on this track several times, so I am confident about this weekend.”
“Nürburgring has an amazing atmosphere. There are a lot of quick turns, along with chicanes, on the circuit. I am positive and hopeful for some good results on that track,” adds teammate Anton Nebylitskiy.
Nürburgring, built in 1984, is a motorsports complex with a track that includes Nordschleife (“Northern Loop”), which winds around the German village of Nürburg and has remained a one-way, public toll road for nearly 80 years, except when it is closed off for testing purposes, training lessons or racing events.
Currently ranked in the top 10 in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series, Team RFR is more motivated than ever to move up the ranks. Teammates Aleshin and Nebylitskiy had almost a month at home in Moscow to think about the upcoming race. “I had some time to relax after Spa. But I still focused on a lot of sports activity and my studies. Four weeks is too long to go without racing! We can’t wait for Nürburgring,” exclaims Nebylitskiy.
Aleshin explains, “After the Spa race in Belgium, I had a lot to do to prepare for the upcoming Nürburgring event. I also was working with the media quite a bit because of the upcoming Moscow race in mid-July!”
“Each season, you learn something different - about driving, working with your engineer and a lot of other things, such as learning to work with a new team and communicating with the media,” says Nebylitskiy.
“We still need to work a lot to fight for the podium - that‘s Team RFR‘s goal. If I can get to the podium, we will set our sights on winning the race. We have all the good makings of turning this goal into a reality,” comments Aleshin. “We have had a steady progression throughout the WSR. We continue to score points at each event and this is very important. I think we need to try to keep this progression and then good results will come!” Aleshin goes on to say, “The point is to be as close as possible to the top of this very competitive championship.”
