Lucas di Grassi
“Silverstone is a track with a fantastic tradition, not only in single-seater racing. Endurance races are part of the history of this circuit as well. Everything started on a former airfield which, due to its numerous long straights, was an absolute high-speed track for many years. Since then, the track has changed a lot. There are some new, very narrow sections in the first sector. But fortunately, the fascinating combinations of turns such as Copse, Maggots and Becketts have remained. I’m very excited to see how these corners following in quick succession will feel in our Audi R18 e-tron quattro. Despite the conversions that have been made to the circuit in recent years we’re still achieving an average speed of 200 km/h. It’ll be a great season opener.”
