FIA GT1 2011 - Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi
http://www.racedepartment.com - Aston Martin sealed a thrilling victory in
the Championship Race at Abu Dhabi with the Hexis AMR No. 3 of Stef
Dusseldorp and Clivio Piccione holding off a late charge by the JR
Motorsport Nissan GT-R No.22 of Peter Dumbreck and Richard Westbrook to
take the chequered flag.
Third place went to the All-Inkl Munnich Motorsport Lamborghini No.38 of
Marc Basseng and Markus Winkelhock, which also had to fight hard in the
closing stages, with both the No. 4 Hexis Aston Martin of Christian
Hohenadel and Andrea Piccini and the No. 8 Young Driver Aston Martin of
Darren Turner and Stefan Mucke finishing within two seconds on the road.
Victory belonged to Piccione and Dusseldorp however, with Hexis' superb pit
stop the key as it allowed the team to jump from fifth into a healthy lead
of around seven seconds. That proved just enough as Westbrook in the JRM
Nissan GT-R was able to close to within four tenths in the final stages of
the race, but couldn't quite do enough to find a way through.
Piccione acknowledged the role the stop had played, saying: "A big thank
you to the team; they made this win possible with an amazing pit stop."
The win, which comes on Dusseldorp's GT1 debut, also puts the Dutchman and
his teammate top of the 2011 standings, while Hexis sit top of the team
The start of the race was notably less dramatic than its afternoon
counterpart, although a storming start by Enrique Bernoldi in the No. 20
Nissan Sumo Power GT-R saw him jump from fourth to first.
The top five remained within two seconds of each other almost until the pit
lane opened, but drama ensued as the lead No. 20 Sumo Power GT and the No.
41 Marc VDS Ford - which had been second - collided in the pit lane. The
Nissan suffered damage and the Ford was later penalised, ending both cars'
That left the No. 3 Hexis Aston Martin and the No. 22 JMR Nissan in a
shootout for the win, while behind them the No. 38 All-Inkl Lamborghini did
will to hold onto third under heavy pressure from the second Hexis Aston
Martin and a resurgent No. 8 Young Driver Aston Martin, which had started
the race from the penultimate row of the grid.
Tomas Enge and Alex Muller were sixth in the No. 7 Young Driver AMR, ahead
of the No. 5 Swiss Racing Lamborghini of Peter Kox and Karl Wendlinger.
Despite their penalty the No. 41 Marc VDS of Maxime Martin and Frederic
Makowieski was Ford's highest finisher in eighth, while Mike Hezemans and
Nicky Catsburg guided the Exim Bank team China Corvette to tenth.
