The Audi #8 snatches his pole position for Porsche in Mexico


Six-hour race can give rise to a thousand and one changes,
but the first assault in Mexico falls on the side of Audi. With a combined time
1:25.069, the Audi R18 #8 will start from the pole at the Autodromo Hermanos
after overcoming a 42 thousandths for the Porsche 919 Hybrid #2,
prototype that has been weighed down to the second position by a small error
spot of Neel Jani in his lap. The Ligier JS P2-Nissan #43 of the team
local RBC Sport has been added to the pole in LMP2. full control of Aston Martin, with
pole double in GTE-Pro and GTE-Am

The pole position of the 6 Hours of Mexico was to be determined by small
details and in this case Audi was the game thanks to the performance of
Jarvis and Duval in key moment
. However, the four LMP1 source
German ended up separated by 331 milliseconds. The Porsche #2 is noted in the
second position, while the Audi #7 -again with Fässler and Lotterer as
unique riders – managed to finish third. In a test that is being
atypical for the casualties among the pilots of the factory, the Toyota TS050 Hybrid #5
with Buemi and Nakajima finished fifth
despite the absence of Davison.

However, the end result in LMP1 and
LMP2 and that left the Rebellion #13 as the best prototype private in the category
queen was determined with some intrigue because of a red flag caused
by the accident of the Alpine A460-Nissan #36. A mishap that was in the Ligier
JS P2-Nissan #43 of RGR Sport to score the pole position in LMP2
, a result that served as a
to place the mexican Ricardo Gonzalez to the front of the category. Second
it was the own Alpine #36 while the third position remained in the hands of the
Strakka #42


Something more quiet was the qualifying session pre-destined
vehicles GT, though in this case the controversy made act of presence one more time by
a ‘Balance of Performance’ which again is in giving that talk. Against all
prognosis, the Aston Martin Vantage #95 is scoring the pole position in GTE-Pro with Thiim
and Sorensen to their controls
. The british firm was not happy with that and even
I got to place the unit #97 in the second position. Half A second was over
the Ferrari #51 of AF Corse, while the two Ford GT ended up in the two
the latter positions of the category

Finally, and closing your perfect day, Aston Martin
also added the pole position in GTE-Am
thanks to the work of the pilots of the Vantage
#98. With the aim of starting to overcome the distance that separates them from the
leaders and since fitting Michelin tyres, the british model showed
untreatable and we endorsed four-tenths to the best of the Porsche 919 RSR, role
which in this case fell on the side of 911 #88 of the Abu Dhabi-Proton Racing. In a
script similar to that of the category GTE-Pro, the Ferrari 458 Italy #83 was the
most damaged in this qualifying session
