Posted on 15. Jun, 2015 by in Audi Canada

Lucas di Grassi (Audi R18 e-tron quattro #8): “My third Le Mans and we finished it opposite a finish line for a third time. Once we was second, once third and this time fourth. So, initial is still missing. But that’s racing: infrequently we win, and during other times a others do. For me it’s critical that we give everything. And we did that, no question. We can leave with a conduct hold high since we delivered a illusory foe – even yet we were degraded this time. But that creates us stronger and should motivate us to work even harder so that we can strike behind in a subsequent WEC races and during Le Mans in 2016.”

Loïc Duval (Audi R18 e-tron quattro #8): “Except for a few hours during a night, a Audi was a fastest automobile on track. But that’s not adequate in such a tough competition. You also need a small bit of happening and we didn’t have that today. Congratulations to Porsche on winning. ‘Well finished and a large appreciate you’ also to a team. The mechanics unequivocally did all to give us a automobile again that was means of winning. Still, it wasn’t adequate for Audi to bind feat this time. We need to understanding with that. At least, Audi was means to applaud on lectern once more.”

Oliver Jarvis (Audi R18 e-tron quattro #8): “Following Loïc’s (Duval) accident, we suspicion a foe was over early. But a mechanics from Audi Sport Team Joest sent us behind out on lane in an impossibly brief duration of time. A outrageous appreciate we for that. Still: finishing fourth when you’ve got a intensity of during slightest clinching a lectern is a disappointment. Congratulations to Porsche on winning. Next year, we’re going for revenge. For a contingent this was a initial corner Le Mans. We’ve turn a unequivocally tighten patrol here – we’re going to advantage from that in a entrance races. I’m already looking brazen to removing into a automobile again.”

Filipe Albuquerque (Audi R18 e-tron quattro #9): “After we didn’t get to expostulate in my Le Mans entrance final year, we was even some-more vehement about a run. For a prolonged time, things were going unequivocally good for us. we felt like we was during home in a Audi and my team-mates did a illusory pursuit too. Up until a morning hours, we put a Porsche cars underneath large pressure. Unfortunately, an emanate with a hybrid complement took divided all a chances. we consider it was apparent that, though these issues, we could have finished on podium.”

Marco Bonanomi (Audi R18 e-tron quattro #9): “Strictly looking during a pushing performance, my team-mates and we are happy. When a automobile was using smoothly, we consistently battled for a lead. I’ve got to say: pushing this good Audi was perfect pleasure. Unfortunately, like final year, Lady Luck wasn’t on house with us. Unfortunately, we’ve got to live with that. But during a finish of a day, we could see what a motorist contingent is means of. And that does make me really proud.”

René Rast (Audi R18 e-tron quattro #9): “A good foe for me personally. Into a morning hours, we were using in a tip group, infrequently even heading a race. Then we mislaid belligerent due to hybrid issues. That’s a shame, though that’s racing. Things weren’t going uniformly for a other dual Audi cars either. Now, we’re looking forward to a subsequent races. we gathering 8 stints, schooled a lot about a car, a tires. ‘Thank you’ also to my dual friends – we’re a good team.”
