Swiss high flyers FC Basel are banking on stability to produce top results in this years Superleague Formula, kicking off at Magny-Cours, France on 27/28 June. As in 2008, German teenage star Max Wissel will be in the hot seat of the 750bhp FC Basel single-seater racing car, which, once again will be managed by GU Racing.
We had a lot to learn in 2008, admitted Wissel. I had to drive on numerous tracks that were new to me and we suffered from several technical failures. However, we were also able to gather many valuable experiences and, overall, the progress we made met my expectations. Our preparations for the 2009 season are currently being carried out at a high level and we are looking forward to an exciting season.
The 19-year-old is certainly looking to improve on his best 2008 race result of fourth position as well as building on his relationship with the club. The collaboration with FC Basel has been very understanding and friendly. So, on the one hand, it’ll bring stability to the team and, on the other, it provides me with further motivation. I hope there will be a victory or two to report, he confirmed.
