WEC – Two podium finishes for Ferrari in Shanghai

Shanghai, 6 November 2016 – The AF Corse team Ferrari 488 GTE won third and fifth place in the 6 Hours of Shanghai, the penultimate round of the World Endurance Championship (WEC). The 25 points scored today allowed the Prancing Horse brand to extend the lead over Aston Martin to 10 points in the Constructors’ classification, GTE-Pro. The only unexpected turn of events was seen right at the start, when the Manor team’s Oreca driven by Mathias Beche ended up spinning right round, ploughing into the number 97 Aston Martin driven by Richie Stanaway. Gianmaria “Gimmi” Bruni had already gone past when the prototype ended up against the GT cars, thanks to the great start made by the driver of car 51 speeding ahead of the Ford 66. However, the no. 71 488 GTE did not fare so well. Davide Rigon managed to avoid the accident but clipped a piece of debris which punctured his left rear tyre, forcing him to take two pit stops in just three laps. Accordingly, he and his team-mate Sam Bird were forced to play catch-up for the rest of the race. Bruni, meanwhile, was easily overtaken by the Ford for second as, just like in Fuji, the 66 and 67 cars were simply uncatchable. At the end of the first stint with James Calado behind the wheel, Aston Martin managed to stop a lap early, ending up in third. It was then down to Bruni to put things back in order, with a masterful overtake which began at turn 1 and was completed at turn 2. gianmariabruni.it
