Sergey Zlobin said he was "lucky" after he and SMP Racing took the LMP2 championship titles in the Sao Paulo 6 Hours on Sunday.

Second in class at Interlagos was enough to hand SMP the teams' title while Zlobin won the drivers' championship outright. With the G-Drive Ligier - the only car that could deny SMP and Zlobin - crashing out of the race early on, SMP managed to reach the chequered flag to take both championships.

Zlobin - who shares the car with Nicolas Minassian and Maurizio Mediani - was crowned drivers' champion having scored more points when he was split from his team-mates in the double-points Le Mans 24 Hours. Reflecting on his success, Zlobin admitted it was all down to the result in Le Mans that had won him the title and he feels his team-mates deserve plenty of credit.

"Thanks to the whole team, as it is the result of the whole team," Zlobin said. "I was just lucky more than others, because at Le Mans I went to another machine ... otherwise, we would have won as a trio. Thank you, thank you and thank you again!"
