    Enough said? Sometimes Vettel is the most entertaining to watch in post race interviews.

    Re: 24H Le Mans this week end

    Super Darius:

    Francois,congrats again!to make what you make a person must have "balls".kiss

    coming back to LMP1,this is my idea about the stop of the Number 6 of Toyota.The Toyota 5 And the Porsche Number 2 make a splash and go at around 30 minutes from the end of the race,the 6 not....

    sure if the 6 stop to splash the 2 would win the race,was faster And back only of a few seconds.

    my idea is that the 6 was without fuel at the end of the race,they try to finish becouse they have no other solution...to try to win.

    i'm wrong?

     

     

    I'll try and answer your question:

     

    If I'm understanding you correctly,I think there may be some confusion with the car numbers.

     

    The #6 was already out of contention for the win (assuming the #2 and #5 survived) as it was a little over 3 laps behind the two leaders.

    However it did stop on lap 374 for a splash of fuel and made it quite comfortably to the end.

    The #5  stopped on lap 375 and took on board fuel. It only had to complete another 9 laps , and as it was capable of doing 14 lap stints, it was well fueled to the end.

    The #2 stopped on lap 382 because it had an issue with a front tire. They had enough fuel to the end.

    So reducing things down to the simplest form; I don't think fuel was an issue for any of the cars, assuming that the fuel rigs worked properly.

    Yes you understand well,and yes also for confusion with car numbers.Smiley

    Reading your post i understand i lost a refuel,the one at lap 375 of the number 5,i was sure the car never stopped,and for this reason i think the car was out of fuel at the last lap.Smiley

    Thanks for your clarification

    Congrats to Futch on a P3 with AF Corse, fantastic result!

    Unfortunately for once we had to cheer them on from the comfort of home instead of locally with all the fans, but still great to follow the race like this. Next year, back to camping, beers and bbq!

    AF Corse’s No. 83 Crew Completes Ferrari Double...  E0F26BDD-E91B-4EF4-964B-7C4204B9E420.gif

    Reigning WEC GTE-Am champions Nicklas Nielsen and Francois Perrodo, joined by their 2021 co-driver Alessio Rovera, claimed a dominant victory in GTE-Am for AF Corse.

    Nielsen, who shared in Ferrari’s recent 24H Spa win with Pier Guidi and Ledogar, brought the No. 83 Ferrari to the line 1 minute, 41 seconds ahead of the No. 33 TF Sport Aston Martin Vantage GTE of Felipe Fraga, Dylan Pereira and Ben Keating.

    AF Corse led consistently from the seventh hour onwards after an early period of ascendancy for defending winner TF Sport.

    The Ferrari had a strong run through the night, while TF encountered a setback on Saturday evening when Fraga nosed into the first Mulsanne chicane tire wall before pitting for repairs.

    The morning saw AF Corse consolidate the advantage it had built up over the dark hours, with consistent stints from all three drivers including Bronze-rated pilot Perrodo ensuring a first-time Le Mans win for all members of the No. 83 crew.

    What a great achievementkisskiss and we had the chance to follow his first steps in the racingworld here at Rennteam - stunning.

    Another former member of Rennteam "Napolis/James Glickenhaus" achieved this year 4. place overall with a car out of his own production angel...also just unbelievable...and in 2022 he could even get a better result...let´s see.
