Fully confident

Peter Mücke: Maxi is a title contender

Team Mücke Motorsport will be fielding five drivers in the hunt for the title when the new Formel ADAC season opens in four weeks’ time at the etropolis Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. Last year’s runner-up Maximilian Günther will be in the front line for the squad from Germany’s capital city, as they line up in the colours of ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg.

The 16-year-old German, who is supported by the ADAC Sports Foundation, made his debut in 2013 in this top-class junior series. Finishing second overall, he rounded off the season perfectly for Mücke Motorsport, who clinched both drivers’ and team titles.

Project title defence

At the season finale, team boss Peter Mücke and Maximilian Günther laid the foundations for further mutually beneficial cooperation during 2014. “Maxi was extremely impressive in his debut season in the Formel ADAC,” said Peter Mücke. “And now we aim to defend our title with him and his four team-mates in 2014. Maxi is clearly a championship contender. We are all looking forward to another season with Maxi.”

The teenager from Germany’s Allgäu region began his successful career in karting as 2006 Bavarian champion and is held in high esteem by Mücke’s racing engineers and mechanics, because his technical knowledge is excellent and he does everything in his power to achieve success; he undertook a preparation and training year with the Berlin-based team back in 2012, proving his ability.

Maxi: I really feel at home

Maximilian Günther: “I’ve been working with Mücke Motorsport for three years now and really feel at home in the team. The guys are like family to me and I couldn’t imagine a better team. I’m very much looking forward to tackling the new Formel ADAC season with Mücke Motorsport. My goal is clear after finishing runner-up in my debut year last season: I am not taking part to come second again but intend to win the title.”

And the young 16-year-old, who enjoys playing golf, cycle racing and cross-country skiing, has a big ambition: He wants to become a Formula 1 driver: “That’s my big dream.” He knows that it’s a long and difficult path but added: “I’ve made it my goal to turn my hobby into my job. In order to achieve that, I will really step on the gas again this season in the Formel ADAC along with my team, Mücke Motorsport.”

Kim-Luis Schramm, Swiss youngster Giorgio Maggi, plus newcomers Marvin Dienst and Philip Hamprecht will line up alongside Maximilian Günther for Mücke Motorsport. Benjamin Mazatis has been signed as test driver. In 2015, he is set to join the squad as Mücke’s driver in the junior series.
