Alternating weather and turbulent racing patterns thwarted top rankings for the Paraguayan Dürksen and his German team-mates. Göhler missed in the first race with eleventh place, his best season placings so far, the jump into the top ten just barely, while Dürksen did not finish the race. Also in race two the two were missing the racing luck. Göhler retired after a touch with a competitor, Dürksen was twelfth.

For the two BWT Mücke Motorsport pilots it was the first race weekend ever on the 4, 2010 kilometers long traditional course.

At the start I overtook a few cars, then fell behind a bit, but was able to fight back – also thanks to the mistakes of some drivers in front of me.

In the second run the Paraguayan turned up clearly. From grid position twelve, the BWT Mücke Motorsport driver made an excellent start. After the first few kilometers, Dürksen finished eighth. After several safety car missions, the Paraguayan dropped back to twelfth place. “I started the race in twelfth place and had a really good start”, the Paraguayan summarizes the start phase. “I was in eighth place and the pace was good. Unfortunately, it came into contact with another driver, causing my car a slight damage. I could not push so hard and finished twelfth. “For Göhler it was not as good in the second race as it was on Saturday. In contact with another pilot at the beginning of the Parabolika curve Göhler damaged his car, which meant the premature end of the race for him.

Frank Lucke (Formula 4 Team Leader): “When you're driving in Formula One, you all have heightened expectations. Everyone wants to present themselves better and hopes for even better results. It did not start that bad for us. During the weekend, Joshua Dürksen and Nico Göhler have been steadily improving. With seventh place in the second qualifying and less than five tenths of the pole, Joshua has shown that he can keep up with the fastest. Also Nico liked us very much, especially in the first race. He had no experience on the track until this weekend and narrowly missed the points right away. ”
