Krohn Racing‘s season ended at the side of the Bahrain International Circuit, retiring from the final round of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
Starting from seventh on the grid, Nic Jonsson took the opening stint of the race, before switching to team owner Tracy Krohn and Maurizio Mediani at the first and second pit stops respectively. However, on lap 83, with Mediani approaching the end of his stint, a fuel system problem forced Mediani to pull to the side of the track and park up.
The official classification from the FIA was a DNF, ending the popular green-and-blue Ferrari’s season in disappointing fashion.
“We had some sort of fuel system issue that had us out of fuel prematurely, two to three laps before anticipated,” said Krohn Racing Race Engineer Rick Mayer. “This was with using both the low fuel light and the fuel used counter. Something in the fuel cell makeup tank wouldn’t allow all the fuel to be scavenged. It’s unfortunate as Maurizio had a really good run in our third stint on the medium tire option and the car was competitive in our class and handling well. We were optimistic based on those lap times moving forward with the night tire option. I’m not sure we had the pace to win but a good result was certainly in the cards. In six hours a lot can happen unfortunately we didn’t get to the end of this one.”
