Audi R18 (2016) #8 (Audi Sport Team Joest), Lucas di Grassi, Loïc Duval, Oliver Jarvis
Shortly after the race was released, the track began to dry at the beginning of the second hour. André Lotterer was the first driver from the group of front runners to get slicks while Loïc Duval pitted a lap later as well. After all top cars had switched from wets to slicks, the #7 Audi was clearly leading before Lotterer, at 16:20, had to pit for changing the turbocharger, which took about 20 minutes. With a six-lap deficit #7 – now with Benoît Tréluyer at the wheel – resumed the race in position 59.
Loïc Duval in the #8 Audi took the lead for some of the time but during the second hour dropped back to fourth position.
