FIA WEC  - 6 Hours of Shanghai, China
Sunday, November 5th  2017



TS050 HYBRID #7 (Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi, José María López)
Race: 4th, 188 laps, 7 pit stops. Grid: 1st. Fastest lap: 1min 46.033secs
 


Mike Conway (TS050 HYBRID #7):
“It was not easy to manage the tyres today, particularly on the second stint but we hung in there. Unfortunately we lost the lead twice due to incidents. It could have been a one-two today and big points for the team; but that didn’t happen. Congratulations to car #8; they deserved the win so all credit to them.”
 


Kamui Kobayashi (TS050 HYBRID #7):
“It was a very unfortunate race for us. We had a good car but we struggled a bit with the tyres. Still we managed to fight for the win. We didn’t give up but it was a pity that the last collision dropped us back to fourth. We will be pushing for better in Bahrain.”
 


José María López (TS050 HYBRID #7)
: “On my second stint it was difficult with the tyres. Then I had the incident with the GT car. It was my fault for sure, but it’s not an easy situation. I was going inside at turn 13; it’s the kind of thing you do a few times every race and there is no problem. I will have a look at the video and learn from this to come back stronger.”
 



TS050 HYBRID #8 (Sébastien Buemi, Anthony Davidson, Kazuki Nakajima)
Race: 1st, 195 laps, 6 pit stops. Grid: 3rd. Fastest lap: 1min 45.892secs
 


Sébastien Buemi (TS050 HYBRID #8):
“It’s an amazing result for our car. We had a great fight with the sister car and it’s just unfortunate we couldn’t bring home a one-two. It’s been a great job from the team to strike back from some difficult races with back-to-back wins. Hopefully we can fight for a fifth win in Bahrain and have more wins than Porsche this season. For now let’s celebrate the win and enjoy the last fight in Bahrain.”
 


Anthony Davidson (TS050 HYBRID #8):
“It’s great to get a win again after actually driving the car, unlike in Fuji! I can properly celebrate this one. The car was great. We struggled a bit compared to #7 in qualifying but we had the best car in the race. I want to say thanks to our car crew because we had the right strategy and strong pit stops. That gave us the platform to win today.”
 


Kazuki Nakajima (TS050 HYBRID #8)
: “Many thanks to the team for giving us such a good car and well to the pit stop crew. My team-mates did a great job but I suffered a lot in the car, with the traffic and all the rubber on track. I lost a bit of time but managed to survive and we had the speed to win by a lap. I am happy with the race result and now the target is to win again in Bahrain.”
