LMP1 preview #fiaworldendurancechampionship in #mexicocity, round 5 of 9

Stuttgart. After the summer break the #porsche LMP Team heads to the first 2017 overseas race: The fifth of nine rounds of the #fiaworldendurancechampionship (WEC) is held on September 3 in #mexicocity and the team aims to extend its cham-pionship lead. After race wins in Le Mans and at the Nürburgring, #porsche now leads the manufacturers’ standings on 154 points from Toyota (114.5 points). The trio of Earl Bamber (NZ), Timo Bernhard (DE) and Brendon Hartley (NZ) currently tops the drivers’ standings on 108 points, having a 30-point advantage to the best placed Toyota crew. Reigning World Champion Neel Jani (CH) and his partners André Lotterer (DE) and Nick Tandy (GB) with the second #porsche919hybrid currently rank in fourth position (46 points).

Fritz Enzinger, Vice President LMP1, says in the run-up to the six-hour race in Mexico: “We continue to follow the clear target of defending both world championship titles. After winning the Le Mans 24 Hours for the third consecutive time despite difficult cir-cumstances, and more recently claiming a hat-trick of wins at the Nürburgring, we want to conclude the 2017 #wec with the third successive constructors’ and drivers’ titles.” Since Porsche’s return to the top category of Le Mans Prototypes (LMP1) in 2014, the #porsche919hybrid has won 15 races.
