Peugeot (but not Franck) win 1000k of Spa

After all that worry, Franck came second:

Pos Cl Drivers Team/Car Time/Gap
 1.  LMP1   Gene/Wurz/Davidson            Peugeot 908        6h02m03.799s
 2.  LMP1   Montagny/Sarrazin/Minassian   Peugeot 908           + 42.965s
 3.  LMP1   Capello/Kristensen/McNish     Audi R18 TDI            + 1 lap

I didn’t watch much, if any, of the race, but that seems rather incredible. From 50th to 2nd? Still, everyone said it was a long race, and I guess it must have been so.

As usual, Franck was his incredibly happy self:

“My stint was complicated because I had to overtake a lot of people. I couldn’t drive at the same pace as the other due to the traffic and I used up the tyres quite a bit, so the balance was odd at the end of the stint.”

Hmm. If it ain’t a win for Mr M, then it just isn’t good enough.

However, there was a smile at the end of the race when he gave teammate Sarrazin a quick squeeze.

A podium, a smile, and still a little bit of stubble. Can’t ask for more than that from a Franck weekend.
