Ralf Schumacher’s DTM switch isn’t going well (DTM)

Ralf Schumacher, DTM, 2008, 400266

Six races into his first DTM season and six-times F1 Grand Prix winner Ralf Schumacher is struggling to make an impression:

Round Qualifying Race
Hockenheim 15 14
Oschersleben 13 10
Mugello 13 DNF
Lausitzring 13 13
Norisring 11 16
Zandvoort 19 12

He’s only made one appearance in the top ten in qualifying or the race all year.

Yes, he’s in a year-old Mercedes but he’s not the only one. At Zandvoort last weekend he qualified last and 0.8s slower than Gary Paffett who had the same equipment.

Perhaps it’s too soon to judge how the younger Schumacher is doing in the DTM.

But you expect a certain level of performance from a multiple Grand Prix winner and being stuck at the back of the field in a touring car race isn’t it. What’s going wrong for him?
