A year ago, it looked like GT Le Monde’s Michael Schumacher had been the best driver on the grid.
Then, a month ago, the German took a two-point lead over teammate Sebastian Vettel on the podium.
Last week, he took a second-place victory over Lewis Hamilton, who finished second in his season-opening win.
All of that happened without the use of the hybrid system that was introduced in the 2014 season, and it’s an impressive achievement.
And it’s not the first time a German has won the championship in GTLM’s premier class.
Before the 2014 year, the best car of the year was the German himself, Sebastian Vetter, who was second in the standings in 2004.
The best car in that year’s championship was an even better car, but Vetter never won.
This year, though, the car that has been the fastest of the best has come out on top, taking second place on the opening lap of the race.
And if Schumachers first-place finish was any indication, he may have a shot at that next time.
For Schumach, the race began in a way that only the fastest cars could: In a straight line, the track was almost entirely empty, with no overtaking.
That meant the car was just a bit slow for the first few laps, but it became a lot faster as the race went on.
SchumACH’s car was so slow that he had to wait for another team member to drive it, which was the case for both drivers.
And he was able to get it on track, where it quickly became a much more competitive race.
This was not the quickest car on the track, but the fastest on the circuit, according to our data.
It also had a lot of power, and Schumbach’s best lap was 5.9 seconds, which is the fastest time in GT2 history, according
