6 Hours of Shanghai



FIA WEC Shanghai Resources

» Porsche can wrap up the Manufacturers and Drivers Championships this weekend. #2 Porsche (Bernhard/Hartley/Bamber) only need to finish third or better, even if Toyota score a 1-2. Porsche have not been shy to use team orders, so without a DNF, this seems likely.

» In the manufacturer’s battle, Porsche need to leave Shanghai with a 44 point gap over Toyota. They currently have a 58.5 point advantage, so Toyota need to score 14 points more than Porsche to keep their title hopes alive. A 1-2 will do this, but that’s a big ask.

» In LMP2, the #38 Jackie Chan DC Racing car leads tops the standings by 10 points, over the #31 Rebellion. With 25 points for a win, The #38 needs to outscore the #31 by 16 points. The #38 Jota run car has not outscored the Rebellion since the Nurburgring, so momentum is with the Swiss team.

» Signatech Alpine are still in the the battle, but hopes are slim. The #36 lags behind the #38 by 25 points, meaning it must outscore the JC DC car at Shanghai to remain in the fight.

» Roman Rusinov’s Russian merry-go-round continues in China. Pierre Thiriet is sitting out this weekend and replaced by ELMS Champion Leo Roussel. Audi DTM driver Nico Muller joins Roussel and Rusinov in the TDS run but G-Drive branded car. Despite Pierre sitting out, it appears the Thiriet branding remains on the car.

» Roussel and Muller make it 7 different drivers in the WEC G-Drive car this year so far – Rusinov, Thiriet, Lynn, Hanley, Rossiter, Roussel and Muller. Loic Duval is set to join the team for Bahrain, making it 8.

» #51 AF Corse Ferrari leads the GTE-Pro battle with 131 points. The closest challenger is the #91 Porsche on 115, 16 behind. The #71 AF Corse has 109, 22 behind the leader. Realistically, it’s a long shot for the #71 to win the title – will Ferrari use team orders to aid the #51?

» The highest Ford is the #67 in fourth, 25 behind the leading Ferrari. The #67 must score more than the #51 to remain in the championship fight. In the #51 has a bad day then the #67 is in with a chance, but a bad day for the #51 is good for the second and third placed cars too.

» The GTE-Am battle is the tightest of the lot. The #71 Clearwater Ferrari has 149 points, the #77 Dempsey Proton Porsche has 147 and the #98 Aston Martin has 146.

» Mike Wainwright continues to take time off for business commitments this weekend. His replacement is Khaled Al Qubaisi, who has his just his second WEC entry of the year. His only other WEC entry was at Le Mans, where the race lasted just 18 laps before the car was unceremoniously deposited into the wall at the Porsche curves by Roman Rusinov.

Again, comments are welcome although formatting may be a little off. When copying from a modern system like WordPress it often puts * in odd places when pasting into vB. So ignore those, I can't be bothered going through the whole thing.

Live timing I've included a link to an unofficial thing. If the author posts here, thank you for the system - it's fantastic. If anyone knows of any addition live timing systems that cover the WEC then let me know and I'll include them for Bahrain. These unofficial systems tend to be better than the official one. There is another one that covered AsLMS but it doesn't appear it'll be doing WEC.

I think this is a good chance for Toyota to repeat the Fuji result. Looking back at last year, they were in a position to win but they had punctures. I also think Ford will be in a good position to win as well. They were 1-2 last year so look for them to get back on form.

Toyota #7 takes first practice from the #2 Porsche. A 1:47.1 from Conway was enough to take the fastest time by 2 tenths. Rebellion #13 led lmp2, #66 Ford led GTE PRO and #54 Ferrari led GTE AM.

Good race so far. GTE is very close, still. Lets see how far Kobayashi closes up on the lead.

#31 Rebellion is 40s ahead of everybody else... with their Am driver. I don't see anyone catching up unless they run into trouble.

Had to miss about 2 hours... and guess what I see a Toyota in the garage just as I come back.

I think he had a rough day but I don't know why they would drop him. He ruined the 1-2, but it changed nothing in the standings really. Hopefully he gets on better at Bahrain.
