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
Rodriguez
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

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
