The three-way battle between Audi, Porsche and Toyota for the top continued to dominate the fourth hour of the race. After 49 laps, Loïc Duval turned over the #8 Audi to Oliver Jarvis. At the top of the hour, the Briton, with a 45-second deficit, was in position 3. Following his stint, Duval reported: “Our R18 is running impeccably. I had a number of great duels out there.”
Benoît Tréluyer continued his recovery in the #7 Audi on a track that remained dry. Within one hour, he improved from 51st to 23rd overall, before letting Marcel Fässler take his place in the cockpit. Both Audi cars only made routine pit stops.
