Audi Ready For Le Mans After Kristensen’s Qualifying Off

1 Mins read

After an off in the closing minutes of the final qualifying session on Thursday night, the Saturday morning warm-up session gave Audi Motorsport a chance to check their repair work on the no.3 R18.

Tom Kristensen had damaged the car, hitting the wall on the outside of Tetre Rouge, but with no track activity on Friday the team had to chance to totally dismantle and rebuild the car before the race day morning warm-up.

All nine drivers in the three car team drove during the 45-miutes session and all three drivers of the no.3 car – Allan McNish, Dindo Capello and Kristensen – were consistently back on the pace they showed during qualifying.

McNish will have the responsibility of starting the no.3 car from fourth on the grid. Timo Bernhard will start the no.1 of the defending Le Mans 24 Hours winners and Benoit Treluyer will start the no.2 from pole. During the race, Audi promise, the drivers will order their stints alphabetically.

The 79th Le Mans 24 Hours starts at 2pm UK time and The Checkered Flag will have live text coverage and hourly updates throughout the entire race.
