Porsche-WEC-2015-1

 

Porsche has concluded the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in Bahrain by taking the sixth consecutive race win and the second title this year.

 

 For Mark Webber (AUS), Brendon Hartley (NZ) and Timo Bernhard (DE) fifth place in the six-hour race was enough to win the Drivers’ World Championship. Romain Dumas (FR), Neel Jani (CH) and Marc Lieb (DE) took their long-awaited first race win this season with the second Porsche 919 Hybrid.

The eighth and final WEC round was a thriller, and this also applied to the Drivers’ Championship battle. Bernhard/Hartley/Webber had started with a 13-point lead ahead of the best placed Audi trio. Given the great season Porsche had had so far with the Le Mans victory and the early win of the Manufacturers’ title, it looked possible to win the Drivers’ title in Bahrain. But half an hour into the race the number 17 car had to come into the pits for a long repair stop. After that, the trio had to go flat out to catch up from the very back of the pack, and eventually they finished fifth. It was the sister car that took the lead and the crucial points away from the Audi.
