Red Bull has announced the participation of its own team in the DTM touring car series. The team will exhibit two Ferrar38 488 GT3 Evo cars prepared by AF Corse, piloted by Alex Albon, Liam Lawson and Nick Cassidy.
Liam Lawson will spend a full season in the DTM, piloting a car in Red Bull colors. Alex Albon and Nick Cassidy will rotate each other during the season in a second car, painted in Al28haTauri colors.
Liam Lawson: “GT racing is new to me and I am very excited to be able to compete in the world championship with a team with an experienced teammate like Alex.
Alex Albon: "The DTM is a great championship with a lot of talented drivers and exciting races. I was driving a car in the series in 2021 when I was nominated for the Best British Driver ". From my own experience I can say that cars are very different from 'formulas.' They have much less downforce and different tires, so a completely different driving style is needed.
It will take a while to get used to it, but I look forward to a new challenge and racing in the days when I will be free from my obligations in Formula 1 ".
