2016 Le Mans 24 Hours: Porsche 919 Hybrid/Michelin victory #2!

Toyota, the world’s number one car manufacturer, came agonisingly close to achieving a goal that has eluded it for so many years: victory at Le Mans, a grail it has been chasing since 1985! A gritty yet focused display by all of its six drivers kept it in contention throughout the 2016 race. Yet a last-minute problem dramatically handed the coveted trophy to the N°2 Porsche/Michelin crew Romain Dumas, Marc Lieb and Neel Jani who inherited a surprise win.

The reigning world champions Mark Webber, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley claimed their first success of the 2016 championship at the Nürburgring, Germany, today in the N°1 Porsche 919 Hybrid/Michelin. The trio was joined on the podium by the crews of the two Audi R18/Michelins who started the six-hour race from the front row. There was a Ferrari/Michelin one-two in LM GTE Pro and a podium finish for the N°31 Ligier-Nissan in LM P2 to celebrate Michelin’s return to the class.

WEC, Nürburgring : Porsche/Michelin domine les « Libres » Porsche Team a dominé la première journée des 6 Heures du Nürburgring, 4e manche du FIA WEC. La Porsche 919 Hybrid/Michelin N°1 a réalisé le meilleur chrono en 1min40s997, mais l’Audi R18/Michelin N°7 n’est qu’à 14 millièmes de seconde ! La séance matinale avait été dominée par la Porsche/Michelin N°2, vainqueur des dernières 24 Heures du Mans. Marc Lieb avait bouclé un tour en 1min41s703, 47/1000e de seconde plus vite que son équipier Brendon Hartley. En LM GTE Pro, la Ferrari 488/Michelin N°51 (Calado) avait tenu en respect les deux Aston Martin officielles. L’après-midi, sur une piste à 26°C, c’est la Porsche 919 Hybrid/Michelin N°1 qui s’est mise en évidence avec l’Australien Mark Webber (1min40s997) devant les deux Audi R18/Michelin N°7 (+0s014) et N°8 (+0s139). La Toyota TS050 Hybrid/Michelin N°6 et la Porsche N°2 (sortie de piste) ont terminé dans la même seconde. Aston Martin Racing a pris l’avantage en LM GTE Pro face aux deux Ferrari 488 AF Corse. Mais l’écurie italienne a dominé la catégorie LM GTE Am avec la Ferrari/Michelin N°83 devant la Corvette/Michelin N°50 Larbre Compétition. Toutes les GTE Am sont pratiquement en une seconde.
