Both of the Audi R18 cars from Audi Sport Team Joest remained in positions four and six between 1 and 2 o’clock in the morning during the Le Mans 24 Hours. A large portion of the eleventh hour was spent under safety car conditions, due to oil on track in the Porsche Curves. Audi #7 took advantage of the safety car period to complete a driver change, wherein Marcel Fässler took over from Benoît Tréluyer. Shortly before 2 o’clock, the Swiss had to return to the pits, because of a front left puncture.
