Cursa de 6h de la Spa: Cand doi au probleme, Audi castiga fara stres

Trioul Audi, Lucas di Grassi, Loic Duval si Oliver Jarvis, s-a impus in cursa de anduranta de 6 ore de la Spa (WEC 6 Hours of Spa) din acest weekend, dupa ce rivalii de la Porsche si Toyota au fost loviti de ghinionul problemelor tehnice.

La inceput, Audi-ul R18 e-tron quattro setat in stil Le Mans, cu aerodinamica reglata sa confere o apasare mai usoara si sa favorizeze vitezele de top, nu a reusit sa tina pasul cu Porsche si Toyota. Ca si la Silverstone, Porsche s-a distantat de urmaritori, cu 919-le Hybrid al lui Brendon Hartley in fata lui Marc Lieb. Germanul a fost tradat, insa, de sistemul hybrid si, in cateva tururi, a ajuns in spatele celor doua Audi si doua Toyota. Iar Sebastian Buemi, la volanul Toyotei TS050 Hybrid, a devenit principalul pericol pentru Hartley, depasind Audi-ul lui Benoit Treluyer.

La sfarsitul primei ore a cursei, Buemi chiar a preluat conducerea, in urma intrarilor la boxe pentru schimbul de pneuri. Iar Porsche-ul lui Hartley a ajus in coada plutonului, dupa ce a fost nevoie sa i se schimbe mecanismul cutiei de viteze fata. Pana spre sfarsitul celei de-a patra ore, Toyota TS050 Hybrid a reusit sa-i dea un tur Audi-ului R18 de pe doi. Dar, la inceputul celei de-a cincea ore, Kazuki Nakajima a trebuit sa intre la boxe invaluit in fum, cu probleme la motor. Mecanicii au reusit sa mestereasca ceva, dar Buemi n-a mai reusit sa parcurga decat un singur tur in mod electric, lasand cale libera trioului Audi.
