Duels in view at the Autosport 1000Km of Silverstone

On Sunday at 11:55 am, 46 race cars will take the start for the last time in 2010. This final promises to be exciting. At 1000Km from the outcome, only one category, LMGT1 has consecrated its champion, Larbre Competition, during the Hungary round.

Everything remains possible! In LMP1, four teams can claim to the title: ORECA Matmut, Signature Plus, Audi Sport Team Joest and Rebellion Racing.

In LMP2, Strakka Racing will continue concentrating their efforts to win. They will have to reckon with RML, current leader in LMP2.

In LMGT2, between Felbermayer and AF Corse, who will win the title? Indeed, the Porsche 997GT3 RSR n77 is in the best position to allow the Felbermayer team to impose itself in LMGT2 but it is followed very closely by the Ferrari F430GT from the Team AF Corse. The raging battle between the two manufacturers will be the talk of the town!

In FLM, there should be a fierce fight for the final victory between the Team DAMS with car n43 and the Team Hope Polevision and its n47.

We shall have to wait until Sunday evening to know the name of the 2010 winner!

LMS Silverstone
The Le Mans Series championship is finishing. This week-end there will be the fifth and last race of 2010 season. As usual AfCorse will line up the three Ferrari F430 with these crews: Bruni/Melo, Alesi/Vilander and Luis Perez Companc/Matias Russo. Despite the excellent results during this first year of the Le Mans Series championship, AF Corse has not many chance to take home the title, even if Alesi, Fisichella and Vilander are well positioned in the total classification, during the season they gained three podiums (third in Paul Ricard and Spa, second in Portimao) and a fourth place. Instead Bruni and Melo have always been distant, they were very unluckily since the beginning of the season. For this last race in Silverstone, the target is to see all three crews on the podium, finishing the season in the best possible way.
Amato Ferrari is trustful because the drivers are fast, the F430 GT2 is very powerful and the Michelin tyres are the best. We just have to wait the first results of the qualifying practice, and of course the race. Remember that the race will be broadcasted live on Eurosport.

A fierce final

The fifth Le Mans Series race will be held on the famous Silverstone track in UK on September 10th, 11th and 12th. A final 2010 event marked by the come back of two major endurance racing teams: Peugeot and Audi.

The Peugeot Total team will put the 908 HDi-FAP Peugeot n1 on the track with an Anglo-French crew. Nicolas Minassian and Anthony Davidson will be eager to offer a new success to the manufacturer after a 1000Km race. On Team Audi Sport's side, two Audi R15 Plus will be taking the start on September Sunday 12th. Dane Tom Kristensen and Scotsman Allan McNish will share the wheel of n7 while n8 will be driven by German Timo Bernhard and Italian Dindo Capello. Absent in Algarve and Hungary, both brands will attempt to prove who is the best on the track.

This final will be the first Intercontinental Le Mans Cup race. For the occasion, some twenty Le Mans Series cars will play a part in this new concept “Made in ACO”.

Peugeot reveals true pace in P2

By Simon Strang Friday, September 10th 2010, 17:24 GMT

Nicolas Minassian revealed a glimpse of the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP's true potential around the new Silverstone lay-out by lapping more than a second faster than the opposition in the second free practice session for the AUTOSPORT 1000km.

The Frenchman, who watched the #1 Peugeot spin off the track at Farm in the hands of co-driver Anthony Davidson early in the session, waited until near the end of the hour to move ahead of the 'privately'-run Oreca version at the top of the timesheets.

Nicolas Lapierre was second fastest in that multi-coloured #4 car, having proved the pace-setter for much of the session with a 1m45.110s lap.

Allan McNish went third fastest for Audi, improving on his morning time with the R15 TDI to lap at 1m45.789s ahead of his team-mate Rinaldo Capello in the sister car - the pair of them unusually on-track at the same time having been split in to different crews for this event.

Rebellion Racing upheld Lola honours with fifth fastest time for the Andrea Belicchi/Jean-Christophe Boullion machine, while the #009 Aston Martin was sixth quickest.

Olivier Pla was tenth overall in the ASM Ginetta to be top of the LMP2 class, outpacing the Strakka Acura for 0.4s.

Darren Turner, returning to the scene of what could have been a triumph for him in the World GTs earlier this year, set the pace in GT2 along with co-driver Rob Bell in the JMW Aston Martin in what promises to be a fascinating class battle this weekend.

The V8 Vantage was 0.4s quicker than the closest Ferrari, that of AF Corse driven by Jean Alesi, Giancarlo Fisichella and Toni Vilander - which was second quickest in class.

But only just from the #77 Felbermayr Porsche and Jaime Melo in the second AF Corse machine.

Audi on top of the world
Several drivers and teams came head-to-head in four classes in Le Mans Series title decider at Silverstone, but also first round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, and it is still impossible to predict who will triumph, even if today's sunny qualifying session gave the polesitters a leg up.Audi Sport Team Joest's Allan McNish retained the honor of setting the fastest lap time of the Autosport 1,000Km of Silverstone qualifying session, despite some strong competition from Timo Bernhard in thSaturday was a day of surprises in Great-Britain - no Peugeot prototype on the front row, no genuine threat to polesitters Audis, and JMW Motorsport eclipsing the Porsches and the Ferraris in the LMGT2 class. Who are the genuine contenders for victory on Sunday afternoon? May the best teams and drivers win!

Davidson unfazed by Audi pace

By Simon Strang Saturday, September 11th 2010, 16:23 GMT

Peugeot driver Anthony Davidson says he is unconcerned by the pace of the Audis at Silverstone, despite the R15 TDI Plus's locking out the front row in qualifying for the AUTOSPORT 1000km.

Davidson's co-driver Nicolas Minassian qualified third, a second behind the pole-winning #7 car of Allan McNish, which came complete with a high-downforce package to the final round of the Le Mans Series this weekend.

But while the French driver spun on his first flying lap and was caught in traffic thereafter. Davidson remains convinced that it will be closer on Sunday and that Peugeot is capable of running as fast as Audi in the race.

"It's the first time we've met them in full downforce, and we have been waiting to see what their speed would be like, and it seems it's very much on our pace," Davidson told AUTOSPORT. "But that's a good thing, because it will make for a very good race.

"But we are not surprised at all at the pace of Audi. Qualifying didn't go our way. But I am certain we could have done that lap time.

"Nic had a spin and after that he didn't get best out of car because of traffic, even his best lap was done in traffic. Silverstone always been a track where you have to maximise your time."

Davidson is racing on the British Grand Prix circuit for the first time since the introduction of the Arrowhead section, and the former Honda F1 driver said he is enjoying the changes.

"I really like it," he said. "I'm still learning it. We are time limited on parts so we are short on laps, so I am still finding my way around it. You don't get many laps to hone your set-up and rhythm in the Le Mans Series."

Asked what his favourite part of the new section was he replied: The Turn 11/12 Abbey high speed chicane. It's the biggest challenge, with the bump going in to it which upsets the balance of the car. It rewards commitment. But it caught me out yesterday which is why I spun."

Davidson leads as McNish retires early

By Simon Strang Sunday, September 12th 2010, 11:55 GMT www.autosport.com

Factory Peugeot driver Anthony Davidson holds a slender lead over Oreca's Nicolas Lapierre as the French manufacturer took an early hold of AUTOSPORT 1000km, following a shock retirement for the pole-sitting #7 Audi in the first half an hour of the race.

Allan McNish made a strong start and led initially before engaging in a hugely enthralling battle with Davidson at the front.

But the Englishman eventually got past on lap nine with a brave move down the inside into Abbey, despite McNish's robust defence, and quickly began to pull away.

Less than ten laps later, and the McNish/Tom Kristensen car was out of the race having exited the arena section very slowly and then trickled down the Wellington straight to a grinding halt.

"We lost drive very early on," said McNish. "It's something we've not had a problem with before so we have got to get the car back before we can really say what it is but it seems to be a mechanical issue.

"It was going to be a fantastic race, Anthony's overtaking manoeuvre was a good one. It was going to be a good battle between all four us, but now it is down to three."

Audi Team Joest's technical director Ralf Juttner speculated: "Sounds like an input shaft or something like that. We have to check the car out but it's a big disappointment for sure."

The Oreca Peugeot inherited second place on the spot, having moved ahead of the #8 Audi driven by Timo Bernhard when the German ran wide and briefly off the track.

Jonny Kane held a comfortable lead in LMP2 for Strakka, while Rob Bell took the lead of GT2 with the Aston Martin before being passed by Toni Vilander's AF Corse Ferrari on lap 11. Jaime Melo was third in the other AF Corse car.

At mid-race of the Autosport 1000Km of Silverstone, Nicolas Minassian on Peugeot N1 keeps the lead in front of the sister car run by Oreca and the Audi N8. In LMP2, Team Quifel/ASM drivers are now leading the category in front of OAK Racing n35 and Strakka Racing's 42.

LMGT2 also sees many changes of lead. The Aston Martin N 92 has recovered advantage over the Ferrari N96 and the Porsche N 75. In FLM, this is not the case with Hope Polevision's N47 is still leading the pack

Capello: Audi gained vital experience

By Simon Strang Sunday, September 12th 2010, 18:02 GMT

Audi gained 'vital experience' for its upcoming challenge at Petit Le Mans later this month, despite finishing a distant third in the AUTOSPORT 1000km with its new high downforce package, that is the view of Rinaldo Capello.

The Italian, who shared the final step on the podium with co-driver Timo Bernhard, added that while the R15 TDI Plus had been badly affected by understeer during the race, the team had learned important lessons looking ahead to the rest of the year.

"Actually the result we achieved is a good result, the first race with the new aero package," he said. "What is important for me is that today we learned something about the car which can help us improve the car for Petit Le Mans.

"The reason why the car we could not keep the pace with the leaders, was because unfortunately we got an understeering car which we did not expect.

"It made the car less agile in traffic and that was our weakness during the race. It meant we couldn't attack. It was a good car until yesterday and then we started to struggle a little in the warm-up and this problem stayed for the race.

"What is good that we can gain some experience. We will be ready to fight for the win at Petit."

Bernhard added that he believed a change in wind direction may have affected the R15's performance: "I think that came also into play. Especially the new section, the Turn 11 right-hander was quite unguarded so the wind can blow there and we picked up some understeer at Becketts also. I don't know where that came from...

"Small things like that can make a difference."

The sister Audi, driven by Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish retired with a differential failure early in the race, having led initially.

Sarrazin celebrates second LMS title

By Simon Strang Sunday, September 12th 2010, 17:40 GMT

Stephane Sarrazin says he would love the opportunity to win a 'unified' endurance world championship after he was crowned the Le Mans Series champion for the second time.

The Frenchman won the LMS drivers' title the minute Allan McNish and Tom Kristensen retired from the AUTOSPORT 1000km, because he could then not be beaten in the points standings. He went on to finish second in the race with Nicolas Lapierre.

But Sarrazin admitted afterwards that he would have preffered to win a title in a series where the level of the competition remained constant from race-to-race.

"We won all three championships, driver, team and manufacturer so it is very good," he said, "but Audi was not always here, so it's okay, but I am not so excited.

"I would prefer to see one championship for all the endurance races, that should be the dream. One world championship.

"It is good that they are trying to do something with the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, but we need to push for it."

Sarrazin also paid tribute to Oreca, which took the teams' title: "It's good. I'm very happy, but I am more pleased for Oreca and Peugeot because they have invested a lot in this championship. I am very happy for the team, because it was there main target this weekend. For me the job was already done almost.

"Being two-times champion in the LMS, but to win it for myself feels a bit strange

LMS - Ferrari wins at Silverstone

Maranello, 13 September - At the Silverstone 1000 km, the fifth and final round of the Le Mans Series, success in the GT2 class went to Jaime Melo and Gimmi Bruni, at the wheel of one of the three Ferraris entered by team AF Corse. Having started from fourth on the grid, the impressive pair skilfully worked their way to the front, keeping control until the end of the six-hour race. They came in ahead of the Porsche 997 of Richard Westbrook and Marco Holzer and the Aston Martin V8 of Robert Bell and Darren Turner. Despite an excellent start, the third F430 entrusted to the trio of Giancarlo Fisichella, Jean Alesi and Toni Vilander by the Piacenza-based team finished 12th. That was due to a driveshaft failure that cost the unfortunate team the advantage they'd earned in qualifying.

Ferrari and AF Corse claimed second place in the constructors and teams championship, just as Fisichella, Alesi and Vilander were runners up in the drivers championship. Now we head to the Petit Le Mans of road Atlanta, which is the next round of the International Le Mans Cup 2010, which began here at Silverstone this weekend. It will take place at Braselton, in Georgia (USA) on the weekend of October 3.
