Fabio Scherer did not score any points in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup on Swiss National Day. The race on the GP circuit in Hungary ended for him in 16th place after a penalty in qualifying (exceeding the track limits).

“My expectations of myself are obviously much higher than P16, but my race was still really good,” says Scherer. “The Hungaroring is one of the most demanding tracks we race. We showed that we have the pace to fight for a top position. But we have to convert this into results on the remaining race weekends.”

The 22-year-old Scherer had to start the race from P30 on the grid after a penalty in qualifying. In the race, the driver from Engelberg, who is supported by STOBAG and ATS Banding Systems, not only made up a total of 13 places, but he also set the third fastest race lap. “The race was a clear improvement on the qualifying. The fact that I set the third fastest time in the middle of traffic makes me proud. Now we just have to get qualifying right at the next race at my favourite track in Spa-Francorchamps at the end of August.”

Scherer is now fully focused on the next race in LMP2. The 24 Hours of Le Mans on 21/22 August is the highlight of the season.
