Double GTE Pro podium for AF Corse Ferrari 488s at Austin
Round six of the FIA World Endurance Championship saw Sam Bird and his AF Corse team-mates secure second and third in the GTE Pro class at the Circuit of the Americas.
Car reliability, driver performance and team strategy all played their part in maintaining the Ferrari challenge, particularly during two full-course yellow flag periods when competitors were required to maintain an even 80kmh.
Sam and Davide Rigon brought their #71 Ferrari 488 home third, behind colleagues Gianmaria Bruni and James Calado in the #51 car, and now sit second in the GT Drivers' Cup, 12 points off the the lead. Bruni and Calado are fourth, while AF Corse and Ferrari currently hold second place in the GTE Pro team and manufacturers' standings respectively.
