He's the one who managed to get the second Quattro to first position sunday morning, didn't deserved to lose the race this way, especially for last year of Capello in Le Mans, moreover it was his birthday. A victory would suit them, but that's race after all. Tight team all this years with many success stories.

Although a motor sport fan of many years, it was not possible for me to follow the 2012 Le Mans for the whole 24 hours so missed out on the unfortunate McNish crash. I did however witness the spectacular Toyota/Ferrari crash which appears to have been a similar occurrence. When trying to overtake slower cars, flashing lights are all very well, but what about the use of a "sound" warning mounted in every car that can be activated by the car attempting to overtake as is now common in the Dakar Rally ? The added expense involved could prevent future similar accidents that could have tragic results.

The usual (and ridiculous) excuses when the crash. 'The guy on the right turned left, or the guy on the left turned right....or what about the guy on the outside turned inside or the guy on the inside turned outside!!!' Whether its F1, LeMans or whatever, these excuses are now the norm.

Capello should have been the finisher, he's fast and controlled.

Allan is fast and all but he has made too many mistakes as of late.

At Sebring Dr Ulrich pretty much gave them the victory, so Allan did not have to work for it there.
