Tom Kristensen: "Driving a race car in public traffic is a unique opportunity."
You've been on the Le Mans grid 17 times. But for driving the Audi R18 e-tron through the city center you need to learn a slightly different route. Driving a race car in public traffic is a unique opportunity. And its not just on any street or road but right in Le Mans from the Place des Jacobins to the race track. After so many years at Le Mans, this will be a very emotional moment for me, too. And Im driving the most beautiful race car Ive ever seen.
Following the teambuilding event with Audi Sport in Lanzarote, you invited the team members for an action-packed day in Denmark. Will the cohesion of the team be a crucial factor in the battle for the WEC title this year? Everybody at Audi and Audi Sport Team Joest knows how important team play and mutual respect between all the members are to Dr. Ullrich and his squad. Its out of the question that were going to have a much tougher competition in the WEC this year than ever before. Thats why the battle is not just about technological progress, as the human factor will be really crucial. At Audi, were well-poised for the challenge.
