Sébastien Bourdais, Peugeot 908 #7: “I made a good start, but got caught in the traffic and the other cars took advantage. It often works out like that when you’re the first to come up on slower cars. We then decided, successfully, to change tactics. This race is very much like the rest of the season: very closely contested at the start, and then gradually our rivals lost touch as the race went on. In terms of performance, it was much closer than the result would suggest. This one-two finish tops off a great season. For me, this is my third win. The team has been very strong this season and all the drivers have been consistent.”
Anthony Davidson, Peugeot 908 #7: “It was an interesting race; very close and all about strategy. The car’s handling was perfect. The tyres weren’t working particularly well at the start of the race. We didn’t panic and changed the tyres at the first driver handover. The car worked very well from that point onwards. The hotter it became, the more rubber there was on the track, the better it was for us. We’re all very happy with the way the season has gone. We have shown the Peugeot 908 and Team Peugeot Total to have very good performance levels at all the tracks. "
