Ideal start to the season for Porsche at the WEC Prologue in France

More comments of the Porsche factory drivers on the FIA WEC prologue in Le Castellet

Michael Christensen (Porsche 911 RSR #92): “We had a lot planned for these two days and we managed to tick everything off our list. The car ran very well, the tyres worked and the weather played along, as well. I’m satisfied because everything ran smoothly and now I’m looking forward to the first race.”

Jörg Bergmeister (Porsche 911 RSR #56): “Endurance racing is, of course, completely new ground for our team. So, the main thing was to work out a routine in the procedures, such as pit stops and general organisation. This all worked excellently and we’re well prepared for the first race.”

Julien Andlauer (Porsche 911 RSR #77): “A dream has come true for me over these two days. I was hoping to race at Le Mans and now I’ve been given the chance to contest the entire Super Season. I never expected this. First and foremost, the Porsche 911 RSR is a dream car. The power, the balance, it’s all new and I find it very impressive. The whole ambience in the WEC is thrilling. What’s more, I’m with the best team I could ever wish for. I’m really excited about the season.”

Ben Barker (Porsche 911 RSR #86): “Since this was the first major test for us, we conducted a lot of checks with the brand new Porsche 911 RSR. The vehicle has loads of downforce and feels really good. Given that we have a lot of new faces in the team, it was also very important to analyse all the internal procedures during the tests. We feel good and we’re heading to Spa feeling confident.”
