Audi early World Champions in Japan
Audi has defended its titles early in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in Japan.
  • Rain at Fuji foils regular 6-hour race
  • Audi squad out of reach in manufacturers’ and drivers’ classification
  • Duval/Kristensen/McNish have extended lead of the standings

Audi has defended its titles early in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in Japan. The success with the R18 e-tron quattro was achieved by Audi Sport Team Joest in odd circumstances: Heavy rain at Fuji meant that not a single lap could be completed under the Green Flag. In the end, the leaders of the standings, Loïc Duval/Tom Kristensen/Allan McNish (F/DK/GB), as the best Audi team took second place overall in the race, their team-mates Marcel Fässler/André Lotterer/Benoît Tréluyer (CH/D/F) were classified in fourth place in the LMP1 category. Consequently, the drivers’ classification will be decided between the two Audi squads at the remaining rounds.
