The FIA honored the title winners of the FIA racing series in Paris on Friday night. Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich accepted the trophy for the successful title defense of the Audi R18 e-tron quattro in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).
I then drove in the Formula 1 World Championship but didnt have a real chance. Now, in my third motorsport discipline with the sports cars, the World Championship title worked out. Loïc Duval won the title right away: This was my first full motorsport season with Audi. The Championship win in a season in which we also won Le Mans is an overwhelming feeling.
Tom Kristensen summed up the season in these words: After finishing a World Championship in karting as the runner-up Ive now won a World Championship with Audi. In doing so, we defeated last years World Champions. Loïc, Allan and Audi Sport Team Joest were brilliant.
