Quotes after qualifying at Estoril.

 

Werner Daemen, Team Manager BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team: “I am happy with qualifying. It is a really good result. We are third, only a few tenths of a second behind second place. I think it was the maximum we could get. With Markus, we set the absolute best lap time so we are very happy. Our three riders also fit together very well and we found a very good set-up for our BMW S 1000 RR. I think we are well prepared for the race. We will give everything and hope for a very good result on the podium.”

 

Markus Reiterberger: “We can be very happy with qualifying. Already yesterday, all three of us did strong laps. We then have further improved the bike for today and I managed to do some really great laps. To set a new lap record is obviously fantastic. Kenny and ‘Hicky’ both also further improved today. We are very confident and looking forward to the race. I think that we can do a good job and hope that we have a clean, trouble-free race. We for sure aim for the podium – or maybe even more.”

 

Kenny Foray: “Qualifying was not so bad. I still don’t feel exactly like I want to on the bike but I try to find a good feeling and it improved during qualifying and I had more confidence on the bike. I am happy for that. Now we will see how the race will go. We have a good pace and I think we can do a good job. I am looking forward to the race and hope for a good result.”

 

Peter Hickman: “Qualifying was really good. We’ve made a further big step forward with the bike for today so we all were over half a second faster, which is good. Everyone is really, really happy. My feeling with the bike is good, the circuit is awesome and I absolutely love it. I really enjoy riding around here. The team is doing a fantastic job and we are looking forward to racing tomorrow. I think we are in with a good shout. We qualified third, really close to the front, so we will wait and see what happens.”

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
