Audi’s Le Mans winning trio extends lead of the Championship standings in Brazil
- Marcel Fässler/André Lotterer/Benoît Tréluyer take second place
- Lucas di Grassi makes brilliant debut with Audi in home round
- Championship battle remains open three races before the end
In the fifth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) at São Paulo, the Audi R18 had to admit defeat for the first time this season. The Le Mans winners Marcel Fässler/André Lotterer/Benoît Tréluyer in the Audi R18 e-tron quattro finished as the runners-up behind Toyota and in front of their team-mates Lucas di Grassi/Tom Kristensen/Allan McNish in the Audi R18 ultra. This ended an Audi string of sports car victories which had begun in March.
