The #8 Audi R18 lost just under three minutes during the pit stop and is running one lap down after eight hours of racing. The seventh placed #7 Audi R18 has a seven lap deficit to the race leader.
Audi Sport Team Joest also utilized the time during the repair to change drivers: Loïc Duval took over the #8 and Benoît Tréluyer in the #7.
