The team of Team Principal Franz Hilmer wants to break the spell and to celebrate the first podium finish of the season. After having missed the top spots in Bahrain and Barcelona it is time for a sense of achievement for the team. Daniel Abt already showed his and the car’s potential on both race weekends before. Nevertheless, the event in Monaco is very special and a highlight on the calendar. On the challenging street circuit the drivers are not allowed to make any mistake and they have to stay focused all the time. The smallest inattention may mean the end at every corner. For this reason, Daniel Abt and his team mate Facu Regalia prepared themselves on the race simulator for the challenge in Monte Carlo.

The timetable of the GP2 Series at the Grand Prix of Monaco is different in comparison with the schedule of the other European rounds. The practice will take place already on Thursday (22nd May, 12:00). The qualifying will be divided into two groups and the fight for the best starting positions will start on Thursday afternoon (22nd May, 16:15). The races in the streets of Monte Carlo will commence on Friday (23rd May, 11:15) and on Saturday (24th May, 16:10).

Franz Hilmer, Team Principal Hilmer Motorsport:
"The race weekend in Monte Carlo is without a doubt the highlight of the season for every race driver and especially there everyone wants to be on the podium. Of course this is also our target and we want to win a race as soon as possible. But we know that it will be extremely difficult to make it happen in Monte Carlo because you’re not allowed to make a mistake and the race can be over immediately. But anything is possible and we have seen already in the first two rounds that our cars are very fast. Daniel has shown a consistent and a very good performance and he could have been on the podium two times. We would be very happy if we finally could have a successful weekend.”

"For me as a race driver Monaco is a real highlight and I am very much looking forward to the race. After a disappointing start into the season with lots of bad luck it would be great if we could have a good race weekend in Monaco. Basically anything can happen in Monte Carlo. But I am well prepared and I will give everything to have a good result for the team and for me.”

Facu Regalia, Driver #12 Hilmer Motorsport:
"I have never race in Monte Carlo before and I got to know the track on the simulator. The circuit is a real challenge and I am looking forward to doing the first laps in practice. We are going to work hard in order to have a good result. The events in Bahrain and Barcelona didn’t go as expected, but I am confident that the next rounds will be better.”
