Seriously McNish, a bit quicker? You need a lot of "a bit quicker" to beat the pugs this year, maybe pray for a dash of rain to help your cause. Race trim or not nearly 5 sec A LAP slower is just plain ridiculous and blaming the traffic? I guess the ACO cleared the track when the 908s were on their qualifying laps eh? If you're caught in traffic, blame your team for poor track release. Not at all what I'm expecting from a team who just 2 years ago dominates lemans and supposedly learn from their "mistakes" last year.

Surely Audi should know by now that open top cars are aerodynamically less efficient than closed tops?, put a bleeding lid on it as it looks as efficient as a brick!!!
