Seat holder Willi Weber has all but given up on Germany retaining the A1GP title as the series heads to Mexico for the latest race of the season.

The German team heads to Mexico City lying fifth in the standings after a trying weekend of racing last time out in South Africa, with Weber in little doubt that the events of the Durban meeting have had a serious impact on his team's chances.

"We're still the champion team," he said. "But we're aware of the fact that we won't be bearing this title much longer. After claiming two victories so far this season, we definitely still had chances of winning the title. Unfortunately, we were deprived of them by the circumstances at Durban, which were the subject of much discussion and even more writing. Consequently, from now on, we're primarily shooting for good individual results.

"No doubt, all the teams as well as the spectators are looking forward to two thrilling races but primarily to the prospect of the results being determined again to a greater extent by decisions on rather than off the track."

Despite his involvement in another controversial incident in Durban, Michael Ammermuller will continue at the wheel of the German entry and he said he was looking for consistency from the weekend.

"It was frustrating not being able to apply the good results we achieved in the Free Practice sessions at Durban in qualifying and that in the end we retired from the race due to an accident in the commotion of the starting phase," he said. "We want to try and deliver a more consistent performance throughout the weekend in Mexico."
