On Sunday, WBA world middleweight champion Felix Sturm, new WBC middleweight interim champion Sebastian Zbik and WBC executive secretary Mauricio Sulaiman visited the German Formula One Grand Prix at the famous Nürburgring Speedway. They watched an impressive victory by Redbull driver Mark Webber with German superstar Sebastian Vettel taking second place in the Redbull Team garage. Sebastian Zbik: “You can feel the horsepower like a vibration through your body. It’s unbelievable.” Mauricio Sulaiman was impressed by Team Redbull: “They do a very professional job. The pit stop was so fast. We were very close to it.”

On Saturday night, Sulaiman met seven time world champion Michael Schumacher at ringside before the Sturm match. Sulaiman: “A great moment for me. He is a great guy and in my eyes, he’s the greatest driver ever. He told me he is also a boxing fan.”

On Sunday before the race was started, Bernie Ecclestone showed Felix Sturm, Sebastian Zbik and Germany’s best soccer pro Lukas Podolski cars on the starting grit. Felix Sturm: “Bernie and us had to shake a lot of hands. Thank you to Mr. Ecclestone. We had a great week here at Nürburgring with a lot of support by the Formula One family.”
