Peugeot (but not Franck) win 1000k of Spa
Published May 8, 2011
After all that worry, Franck came second:
|1||LMP1||Gene / Wurz / Davidson||Peugeot 908||6:02:03.799|
|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.
