Audi Takes 1-2 at 2014 Le Mans 24 hours
Deserving and joyful winners of the world?s most famous ? and challenging ? endurance race were Andr? Lotterer, Beno?t Tr?luyer and Marcel F?ssler in the No.2 Audi R18 e-tron quattro. Making it an Audi 1-2 was the Tom Kristensen, Lucas di Grassi and Marc Gen? crew of the No.1 Audi but it was a bitter-sweet podium place as that car had been in a strong position for victory until a turbo problem delayed it in the pits. Recovering from accident damage in the first of two heavy rain showers in the first quarter of the race, and finishing in the final overall podium place was the No.8 Toyota TS040 Hybrid of Anthony Davidson, S?bastien Buemi and Nicolas Lapierre, the result allowing them to keep their lead in the World Endurance Drivers Championship.
