The third R18 e-tron quattro that is additionally fielded in two rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) is a ‘dream cockpit’ for many race drivers. Audi has traditionally been offering selected talents an opportunity to prove themselves at the wheel of this car. Be it Mike Rockenfeller, who was in the cockpit of the third LMP race car for the first time in 2007 and, three years later, celebrated overall victory at Le Mans with Audi, Loïc Duval, Lucas di Grassi or Oliver Jarvis, all of them have since been promoted to regular cockpits – so the third car is practically a career springboard.
