We tested a new racecars for 8 hours during a exam day a week ago. The unsettled continue conditions meant that a formula were reduction deputy for all a teams. However, as during a initial dual races in a FIA World Endurance Championship WEC, we saw usually how good a group is prepared from a tellurian aspect, technically and organizationally.

The latest era Audi R18 e-tron quattro is even some-more careful and, during a same time, quicker than a unequivocally fit predecessor. What sense do we have of a racecar?

The new Audi is flexible and gentle to drive. This is of march value a weight in bullion during an continuation race. The growth stairs done any year are always extraordinary for us racing drivers. It’s considerable to see how a Audi engineers work. We have reduction fuel available, though as remuneration a hybrid complement recuperates twice as most appetite than before and we are several seconds faster. Be it chassis, engine or aerodynamics – a R18 e-tron quattro feels improved in each area than a predecessor.

As always, it’s all about removing by fast and reliably and but creation any mistakes. we trust that we’ll usually unequivocally get an thought about who can win during a beginning during morning on Sunday. I’ve lerned entirely for months and come good complacent to a race. The week can begin.
