We had usually brief durations in that a line was dry and offering good grip. On tools of a line it was raining scarcely invariably and there were many interruptions. As a result, we mislaid some time and weren’t means to do all a things we’d been formulation to do. In addition, we weren’t out on line with both cars when it was probable to set good times. Consequently, we can’t tell what would have been probable for us on a dry track. We need to accept that and combine on a race. Good subordinate formula are always good and good proclivity for a group – though for a foe their aptitude is not that great.”

Ralf Jüttner (Team Director Audi Sport Team Joest): “I can’t remember us ever carrying had such conditions on a subordinate days during Le Mans. Rain is fine – though if it’s unsuitable it’s a small formidable to do a decent job. To explain that we’re optimally prepared would be a bit of an exaggeration. But we don’t consider anyone adult and down a array line can contend that about themselves. Now we have to trust a Le Mans knowledge and build on that. The opening delivered by a mechanics here adult to now has to be emphasized, for instance a correct on a automobile series ‘8.’ It routinely takes 5 hours and a guys managed it in 3 hours and 20 mins and, as a result, gained some profitable line time.”

Marcel Fässler (Audi R18 #7): “Due to a constantly changing weather, it wasn’t easy to get into a stroke and build a ensuing confidence. To find a ideal set-up we’re still lacking some kilometers on a dry line – though everybody has to cope with that. On a exam day, we saw that a automobile fits this line well. The foe will be extreme and a spectators can demeanour brazen to a stirring race. We’re going to try a best.”

André Lotterer (Audi R18 #7): “That certainly wasn’t a easiest Le Mans credentials though a conditions were likewise formidable for everyone, nonetheless some might have held a improved time in a cockpit than others. we had small fitness on both days though was still means to set a best time with a car. But that’s not what we focused on. For us it was critical to try out as most with a automobile as probable in sequence to be good prepared. We managed to do that.”

Benoît Tréluyer (Audi R18 #7): “Our automobile was quick from a commencement though a conditions were difficult. We altered a set-up a small though that done us rather slower. That’s because we set adult a Audi for Thursday once more. It felt unequivocally good on a soppy line and when it began to dry off, doing remained stable. That’s because we’re starting a foe with confidence. The path times don’t uncover where we unequivocally mount yet.”
