"For me, making the switch to DTM is very special, it is a championship that has been around for many years, and a championship that I have been watching since I was younger. Even in my first year of racing, I was the support race of DTM, and there were always cars and drivers I looked up to a lot. So to now be making that step up is very special. I am very happy to do it with the package of Verstappen.com Racing and Emil Frey in the Ferrari. I think it is the perfect combination and I am looking forward to it a lot."
The championship works as follows; every team has two cars with one driver per car. For 2023, Thierry will be racing for Emil Frey Racing a prestigious race team with results that speak for themselves.
Free practice: Free Practice works as follows, there will be two free practice sessions on the Friday of the race weekend. Both sessions will be 45 minutes. In these sessions the driver adapts to the car and the track, and fine tunes the car's setup before qualifying the following day.
Qualifying: On Saturday qualifying one will be held, this sets the grid position for race one on Saturday. On Sunday, qualifying two will be held, this sets the grid position for race two on Sunday. Each qualifying session is twenty minutes long, and the driver has this time to go out on track and drive the car to the limit to set his grid position for the following races.
