Marvin Dienst's season

Racing experience and racing intelligence

The 2014 season was Marvin Dienst's second in Formel ADAC. The Mücke Motorsport driver took three victories and finished the campaign in fourth place.

What was your personal highlight of 2014?
Clearly, the Lausitzring weekend which got off to the perfect start with the double pole. One win, a second and a fourth place were my best results of the season. Apart from that, though, I would say that the wet-weather races were my personal highlights. I've always thrived on wet conditions, and I've shown that with good results.

What targets did you set yourself for the season, and would you say in retrospect that you've achieved them?
I had only one objective in 2014, and that was to finish as champion. At times, I was in third place overall, and I was keen to hang in there to the end of the season. Ultimately, though, I had to settle for fourth. Even so, I'm quite happy with the outcome.

What have you learnt in terms of driving skills from competing in Formel ADAC, and where can we expect to see you in 2015?
Generally speaking, I've gained a lot of racing experience which has helped me to develop my racing intelligence. Over the course of the season, I was able to judge my car better and got more confident handling it. I've learnt a lot this season, one thing being how to build myself up again after setbacks. In sport, you can't always be successful, and that's a valuable lesson. I have various plans for the coming season. It's important to start planning ahead at an early stage. One of my objectives is to compete in the FIA Formula 3 Championship, but the final decision hasn't been made yet.
