Nonetheless, a typically resurgent performance from the World Champions Anthony Davidson and Sébastien Buemi soon saw the #1 car back inside the top ten.
“It has been one of our worst weekends to be honest,” admitted Sébastien. “It’s been a long time since we were not on the podium. We had problems in the race and we were not quick enough. We will continue to push and do the best we can.”
The #2 car had a less problematic race but lacked the pace to compete for a podium. Alex, along with Stéphane Sarrazin and Mike Conway, finished the race fifth, three laps adrift, but will the Le Mans 24 Hours firmly in their sights.
“We did the best job we could and fifth was the maximum we could do,” said Mike. “It’s a few more points for us but the next race is Le Mans, which is the big one. We just have to get our heads down and keep working away to prepare the most competitive package we can for Le Mans.”
