World Champions Audi start from front row
- Audi on first and second row at WEC season opener
- Di Grassi/Duval/Kristensen beaten by five thousandths
- Extremely close performance by three brands in positions one to three
Audi demonstrated a good qualifying form at the beginning of a new era in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). At Silverstone (Great Britain), last year’s World Champions had to admit defeat in a thrilling qualifying session by merely five thousandths of a second. The average of four lap times, which have to be set by two drivers, is decisive for all entrants. The #1 Audi R18 e-tron quattro will start from the front row on Sunday, car #2 from the second row.
