FIA WEC: Toyota remains ahead of Audi and Porsche after free practice two

By Johan Laubscher

The second free practice for the 6 Hours of Shanghai concluded with a familiar look on the time sheets. The session was red flagged and stopped early due to poor visibility out on track.

Toyota once again topped the times with a 1-2 for their two TS 040 Hybrid cars. It was again the #8 Toyota that set the fastest time ahead of their teammates in the #7 Toyota.

Audi Sport Team Joest again occupied positions three and four. This time round it was the #1 Audi R18 e-tron quattro of Tom Kristensen, Lucas di Grassi and Loïc Duval in third position, ahead of the #2 Audi with Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer.

Porsche #20 placed fifth and Porsche #14 rounded out the top six.

The second free practice session concluded the track running for Friday. Free practice three and qualifying will be taking place tomorrow.
