Franck wins at Zhuhai

So, last time I was here, we discussed the Thursday test, in which Peugeot dominated.

The weather turned against the drivers during Friday practice, and the first session saw Bourdais’ car on top again, with Franck and Sarrazin finishing slightly further down.

1. # 1 Team Peugeot Total – Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – 1:28.751
2. # 7 Audi Sport Team Joest – Audi R15 TDI – 1:29.389
3. # 8 Audi Sport Team Joest – Audi R15 TDI – 1:30.041
4. # 2 Team Peugeot Total – Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – 1:31.093 (FRANCK!)

In the second session, the weather was worse, and you can see from the times that it was a slow lap.

1. # 1 Team Peugeot Total – Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – 1:32.630
2. # 7 Audi Sport Team Joest – Audi R15 TDI – 1:32.671
3. # 2 Team Peugeot Total – Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – 1:32.722

The third practice session was wet again, but Franck put his foot down and made it to the top of the times once again.

1. # 2 Team Peugeot Total – Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – 1:31.628
2. # 7 Audi Sport Team Joest – Audi R15 TDI – 1:32.642
3. # 1 Team Peugeot Total – Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – 1:32.721

Sarrazin got the car on pole during qualifying, with the other Peugeot car in second behind them. The race got underway, and there’s a full report available here. What you need to know, though, is that our Franck and Stephane won the race!
