Partnering long-time co-drivers and friends Marcel Fässler and André Lotterer in the #7 R18 e-tron quattro, the Frenchman was at least able to find some solace in the crew pushing like never before and fighting until the very end. While circumstances ultimately dictated a third-place overall finish, the result still represents a good return for the current FIA World Endurance Championship points’ leaders who are now focused on securing their second title together.
