South Africa’s Formula 4 rookie Jonathan Aberdein heads to the Nurburgring for the sixth round of the German ADAC championship keen to deliver his first podium in the series on his maiden run at the famous grand prix circuit 6-7 August.
“We have made steady progress through my rookie year and my pace is now as good as the frontrunners when we get it all together,” the Cape Town driver explained. “We have been a little unlucky when it counted most though, so this weekend I hope to string it all together to bring us our first podium and the Nurburgring would be the ideal place to do that.
“We had a fourth place in the race before last and we’re now regularly in the top ten in the race results, but my times are good for the top six. “The trick is to be quick when it counts most, which is in qualifying – I need to get into the top 20 shootout and then put in laps that will see me on the sharp end of the grid every time. “We have had good results every time we have qualified well so good grid positions are our main objective this weekend.
“I am also looking forward to racing on the Nurburgring,” Jono admitted. “This is one of the world’s most important racetracks and I am keen to open my CV here with the best possible results.” Find the weekend program and follow Jono’s progress live via streaming and live timing at www.adac-motorsport.de/adac-formel-4/en.
