Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport): “We would have had a opening currently to win a race. Unfortunately, both cars had technical issues and weren’t means to put their intensity on track. This is quite unsatisfactory in perspective of a fact that we had a fastest cars in a margin for a prolonged time. In such a fiercely rival racing series, usually those who mix tip opening with ideal trustworthiness will win.”

Stefan Dreyer (Head of LMP): “Congratulations to a dual drivers of a series 7 on clinching second place. We’d unequivocally most have favourite to grasp a small more. We had a fastest automobile today, so we’d have favourite to bind feat as well. Both Audi R18 cars were powerful, though not arguable enough. Now we’re going to entirely investigate a issues in sequence to be improved during Austin in dual weeks.”

Ralf Jüttner (Team Director Audi Sport Team Joest): “Number 8 was using ideally from a commencement and set a pace.We done a right tire choice as well. Unfortunately, technical issues subsequently occurred and it was usually adequate for P5 in a manufacturers’ championship during Mexico. Number 7 had to make an early array stop and mislaid time since all other opponents stopped after underneath full march yellow. Instead, André Lotterer regained a lot of time on middle tires when everybody else was using on sleet tires. André would have had a possibility for feat if a stop emanate hadn’t occurred nearby a end.”

Marcel Fässler (Audi R18 #7): “I demeanour behind on a competition with churned emotions. On a one hand, a gait was good adequate for feat in Mexico. On a other hand, several defects regularly caused us to remove ground.André’s opening in sleet on middle tires was tip class.”

André Lotterer (Audi R18 #7): “Mexico was an eventful competition – unfortunately! The start was good. Then a tires clearly degraded and we opted to array early. That cost us a lot of time since a other teams were means to stop after in a full-course yellow period. But in a rain, we unexpected clearly modernized again. we was removing closer and closer to a heading Porsche when an emanate with a electronic stop complement occurred. Second place doesn’t feel so good meaningful that feat would fundamentally have been possible.”

Lucas di Grassi (Audi R18 #8): “Following stick position, a competition started in a unequivocally earnest way. we was primarily leading, though afterwards some technical issues occurred.With a fundamentally clever automobile we’d have favourite to bind a good result. That would have been critical for a championship. This way, however, a weekend was a missed opportunity.”

Loïc Duval (Audi R18 #8): “Today, unfortunately, a misfortune conditions we can suppose occurred for a championship: we didn’t measure any points in a drivers’ sequence in a race. In a beginning, we had good battles withPorsche. The tire choice during a sleet was good too, though afterwards a setbacks came. Now we need to make a best of a remaining races.”  

Oliver Jarvis (Audi R18 #8): “We were doing unequivocally good when we beheld that a automobile was feeling strange. My operative warned me observant that we should stop carefully. Unfortunately, we had no possibility to conflict and slid into a tire barrier. The finish outcome is a contrition for us and all a group members who did such a good job, since a plan was ideal as well. We could have done a step brazen in a championship currently but, unfortunately, we didn’t conduct to do that.”
