Fia Wec: following the one-two in GTE Pro and the second place in GTE Am, at Nuerburgring, Ferrari is first among the Constructors and AF Corse has the top spots

One-two for the AF Corse Ferrari 488s in the 6 hours of Nuerburgring, round 4 of the Fia World Endu- rance Championship (Wec). In addition of the two top spots in GTE Pro category gained by the 488 #51 and #71, the second step on GTE Am podium for the AF Corse Ferrari 458 Italia #83.

The double achievement in GTE Pro was possible thanks to the speed of the drivers combined with the perfect strategy of the team. Under the chequered flag, Gianmaria Bruni and James Calado were first with the Ferrari 488 #51; Calado took his first victory in the Wec and Bruni is the driver with the highest number of individual victories in the world championship. In second position, Davide Rigon and Sam Bird in their Ferrari 488 #71. The duo is second in the GT drivers standing thanks to 70 points (two points away from the top of the classification). Bruni and Calado have now the eighth place with 44 points; their position in the GT drivers standing was affected by the unfortunate events of Spa and Le Mans.

In the GTE Am, François Perrodo, Emmanuel Collard and Rui Aguas took the third position: the drivers have long fought for the top positions even if the race has been complicated. After the chequered flag, due to a disqualification, the squad was promoted to second place. In the GTE Am drivers Trophy, Per- rodo, Collard and Aguas confirm themselves solidly in the lead with 111 points (ahead 41 of the second squad).

In the GT Constructors championship, Ferrari is first with 146 points (Aston Martin second, 138). AF Corse has the second spot among the GTE Pro Team with 70 points (Ford Chip Ganassi is leading with 72) and the first in GTE Am with 111 points (41 ahead Aston Martin Racing).
