It can be very difficult to get out of bed early on a Sunday and FIA WEC coverage is a bit spotty in the States, so if you weren’t able catch the full 6 Hours of Silverstone, we won’t hold it against you. Fortunately for those among us who were unable to tune in live on Sunday, a quick four minute recap has been uploaded to YouTube.
But if you find yourself cruising Fourtitude on a daily basis, chances are that a brief synopsis simply isn’t enough. For those with the time, we’ve also found an upload of the entire event, from pre-race pit lane interviews, all the way through to the podium celebration. That video can be found below.
As we are all aware, the P1 class results are currently being contested due to a front splitter that came in under minimum regulated thickness during post-race inspections, but as we can all clearly see in the video above, Audi’s drivers deserve a great deal of credit, regardless of the outcome. Their management of slower traffic while putting down consistent lap times is nothing short of admirable, allowing them to outpace a Porsche effort that was much quicker during practice, and slightly faster during the race itself.
FIA World Endurance Championship action picks up at Spa-Francorchamps in seventeen days. In the meantime, we’re anxiously awaiting the final results of Sunday’s contest.
