With Mücke and Buhk, however, Schaeffler-Paravan persisted throughout the year and was able to reap the rewards of hard work for the first time at Norisring. Buhk praises: “We learned a lot with steering and I have a direct comparison with conventional steering and space engine steering. I just sit and don’t have to think about it. It feels very similar.”
