Albuquerque in, new tyres, fastest lap of the race. Chatin producing lap times similar to Rodolfo and Klien ahead of him.

i could be going daft, but i thought more than once this season chatin has done half the race in a single stint? he certainly did at least one monster shift at le mans. he's really very good...

seeing panciatici's pace during his turn, i now understand why chatin will be doing the final stint. am i missing something or do they now have a driver change in hand over the 2 cars in front?

It was a very gentle taking of the mickey, much along the lines of the sort of humorous commentary you generally get from them, so I'm not sure they necessarily were shooting themselves in the foot.

He may well have done (and probably has before), but gentleman drivers generally can't hold their pace over consecutive stints. At least, that's what I thought explained Dolan's being so comparatively slow. It has to be repeated though, Chatin is lapping just as quickly as the pro drivers in that car! He's been a revelation.

Signatech definitely have a driver change over Murphy. I think Newblood can keep Klien in to the end because he's their only platinum driver.

Indeed, as well as boosted up GTEs - some completely without air restrictors

If they don't speed up next gen P2s for larger gap, P3 is prob gonna find itself at the bottom of those sheets

Klien's just posted a few slow laps in a row. Chatin catching hand over fist for an exciting finish.

Good finish despite the Murphy penalty taking away some of the tension.

I closed the stream, anyone got a lead on why/how Jota got past Greaves on the last lap? Signatech still with a big advantage going into the last round, but those points may prove crucial.

Enjoyable race if perhaps not quite a classic, a little hampered by the Dailymotion stream being consistently about a minute behind RLM commentary, which bemused rather than annoyed.

Worthwhile way to spend a Sunday and you can't help thinking with the majority of the raw materials being there, it could bode very well for Estoril and 2015.

Didn't follow the race but the maximum speed chart shows two interesting things. For one, GTEs were generally faster than the GT3s (and again P2s) unlike in Q and practice... but secondly, it shows #76 IMSA with 295,1km/h top speed on lap two, which is 5,6km/h faster than the second fastest #54 AF and then most of the other cars are within 5km/h of that... fastest P2 had 286,5km/h

Okay the old Porkie is running air restrictor free but the other cars are nowhere in that zone and it had not shown such speed in other sessions. So did IMSA skip the track or something...

Interesting how the driver categorization doesn't necessarily reflect the actual pace of the drivers. Chatin was Alpine's fastest driver, and Hirsch could go the same pace as Klien in the Morand car, also Capillaire did quite well in the SLR car. Dolan appears to have had a rather bad day yesterday, usually he is one of the better amateur drivers.

in the press conference yesterday, panciatici said he'd decided to go with the medium tyres and it quite obviously didn't work! from a place of complete ignorance (ie mine) it was probably a reasonable gamble - try and gain some pace and make ground for the lead battle and hope the tyres last long enough not to lose everything gained.

regarding dolan, ricard is a very "technical" circuit, very detailed and faffy for want of a better way of putting it. it's all about doing things exactly right. if there's anywhere dolan and the other non-pro drivers were going to struggle it'd be here, so in his defence it's not surprising that it's his worst.

the more races we're having the more it's obvious that chatin is the main reason signatech alpine could win the title. he's really rather good, and i'm a bit surprised there's not more noise about him in the written press. in terms of ultimate pace within the team i think he's not as quick as panciatici, but a little more able to deliver the pace.

equally, and i end up saying this every time he races, ragues is criminally underrated. brandela wasn't too bad, but he easily won the race for them in the same way chatin secured 2nd for alpine.

badey was really quick, wasn't he? having said the non-pro drivers should struggle here, he clearly didn't!
