Posted on 18. Apr, 2016 by in Audi Canada

Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport): “This was a competition that remained a thriller adult until a mottled flag. The initial fielding of a new Audi R18 resulted in both a initial stick position and a initial victory. This entailed a outrageous bid by a whole team. The outcome was a biggest approach of thanking everybody who had worked so hard. We’re really happy about this result. At a same time, a retirement of series ‘8’ showed that there’s still a lot of work for us to be done.”

Ralf Jüttner (Team Director Audi Sport Team Joest): “Like final year, we again gifted a thriller atSilverstone. It was intensely close. At a same time, Porsche, Toyota and us suffered some setbacks. I’m happy that a series ‘7’ got by a competition though any issues whatsoever and won with a clever motorist squad. The mechanics of a series ‘8’ in a final theatre helped with a sister automobile since we knew how tighten it would be. The prize is a honeyed prerogative for some eager months. We have to continue to work intensively though following a success like this it’ll be a small easier.”

Marcel Fässler (Audi R18 #7): “What a riveting race. And a trade on lane finished all even some-more unpredictable. we was always sensitive about a time opening with a Porsche that was chasing me. we managed to control a advantage good since a approach a Audi R18 felt was awesome. A outrageous ‘thank you’ goes to a trackside squad, as good as to a employees in Neuburg and Neckarsulm. This is their success, too.”

André Lotterer (Audi R18 #7): “When we win we arguably had a best automobile as well.But we also commend how quick a series ‘1’ Porsche was today. I’m happy that a automobile was using so impeccably. That provides a engineers with a boost. Obviously, there’s still some some-more work to be done, as a retirement of a sister automobile has unfortunately shown. Still, a whole patrol can be happy about this initial success.”

Benoît Tréluyer (Audi R18 #7): “For us, this was a best approach to open a deteriorate as we can imagine.The team’s feat is a extensive success. However, a sister car’s set-back was a shame. But in annoy of this we again saw a good sporting suggestion that exists during Audi and in Audi Sport Team Joest. They all work towards achieving a idea and support any other – such as a mechanics of a series ‘8’ who helped us today. The new Audi R18 is good fun. That gives we a loose feeling in a cockpit.”

Lucas di Grassi (Audi R18 #8): “A good outcome forAudi Sport following an complete winter is a categorical thing currently – congratulations to a whole squad. We’d have favourite to minister to a outcome as well, though unfortunately suffered a disaster of a car’s hybrid system. Obviously, we’re unhappy since in subordinate and during a commencement of a competition we saw what was fundamentally possible. We were even using in front of a sister car. ‘Thank you’ for that to a whole team.”

Loïc Duval (Audi R18 #8): “Sincere congratulations to Audi on clinching victory. Now we know that a automobile is fundamentally in quarrel for winning. ‘Thank you’ to Audi Sport for a automobile that we took a position on a front quarrel with. The second place my teammate Oliver Jarvis hold in a commencement was good too. Unfortunately, a forsake got in a way. Our mechanics and a engineers did an superb pursuit via a weekend.”

Oliver Jarvis (Audi R18 #8): “On holding grid positions one and dual we managed a ideal start to a weekend. In a beginning, Audi was in front, though we also saw how quick Porsche is. we was forward of a sister automobile by 5 seconds some of a time. But afterwards a hybrid problem cropped adult that primarily cost us 4 seconds per path and eventually resulted in retirement. That was really disappointing. Now we’d like to uncover what we’re able of from a second competition on.”
