Markus Winkelhock: It was a fair decision to give them the victory



We were at the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hours over the weekend and we caught up with Markus Winkelhock who was driving for the United Autosport Audi team.  In the end they finished sixth – United’s best effort in their three races at the Mountain.

Winkelhock comes from a motorsport family with his father – the late Manfred Winkelhock was a F1 and sportscar star and uncle Joachim Winkelhock was, of course a touring car star.

Markus made one F1 start, where he was the only person to start from last and lead his F1 debut.  He has raced DTM, was a FIA GT1 World Champion and has turned to GT racing.  He was in the Flying Lizard Audi in the Rolex 24 at Daytona finish.

In this interview we talk F1, GT racing and hear his surprising views on that finish at Daytona.
