Kovalainen tested the DTM car
Former Formula One racer Heikki Kovalainen tested the BMW DTM Series race car on the track on Thursday. The 32-year-old Finn was initially just getting used to the cabin of the M-four, and then slowly tested his limits as well. “I am very grateful to BMW Motorsport for this opportunity,” Kovalainen said. "To be fair, I didn't know what to expect, as I've never driven a car like this before. I immediately felt at home behind the wheel. The car is very impressive. Of course it's a bit heavier than a Formula One car and not as strong, but the aerodynamics it's very good and you can drive through corners very fast. The team kindly helped me get used to it all. It was immediately clear to me that it was a very professional environment, which I really enjoyed. "
