November the 10th
4h of Shanghai – FIA WEC Championship – GTE PRO
Podium for the Porsche 911 RSR # 91.
Gimmi and Richard Lietz took second place in Shanghai, the third round of the FIA WEC championship, after a disqualification of Ferrari 51 due to technical irregularities. In fact at the chequered flag the Ferrari driven by Calado and Pierguidi finished first in front of the Porsche 92 and 91 but a technical irregularity found at the end of the race on the AF corse car promoted the two Porsche respectively in first and second place on the podium.
After a non-perfect qualifying, starting in sixth position, the pair Bruni/Lietz managed to get a good result.
With 5 more races to go, Porsche extends the advantage of the world championship. After the Shanghai race the championship is led by Kevin Estre and Michael Christensen with 62 points followed by Gianmaria Bruni and Richard Lietz with 52 points.
Next race on December 14th in Bahrain
