Third place during Le Mans: Is a fun of a lectern accepted or a beating following 3 victories in 4 years?

Taking on a Le Mans plea also means that we have to design not to win for once. That’s because we honour a guys from Porsche on their success. From a possess knowledge we know accurately how tough it is to bind feat here. Everything has to fit together perfectly, and we need some racing fitness as good – unfortunately, that wasn’t a box with us this weekend. That’s because we have to settle for third place this year and be happy about it.

Why didn’t a feat work out?

Obviously, we’re disappointed, yet currently is not a day to be sad. We fought hard, yet had a few problems too many. The repairs on a engine cover kept costing us profitable time. We did all we could to make adult for that and, in any event, delivered a stirring competition for a spectators that way. we trust it was motorsport during a top level.

Even yet it wasn’t adequate to bind victory, a Audi R18 e-tron quattro was a fastest automobile in a field.

We managed environment a fastest path with a new path record in a race. This shows that we’ve got a unequivocally good automobile and that a whole patrol did a illusory job, both in credentials and during a week here during Le Mans.

After holding third place, you’re stability to lead a WEC altogether standings together with your team-mates. Is that some consolation?

Le Mans is such an superb competition that everybody wants to win. Still, these were critical points currently in a conflict for a WEC pretension that continues to be a large aim for us that we’re concentrating on. We’re now going to investigate a commentary from Le Mans and afterwards enter a residue of a WEC deteriorate that will usually unequivocally get started after a summer break.
