Valentino Rossi hopes his victory in last weekend’s Monza Rally marks the start of an upsurge in his fortunes ahead of his return to the Yamaha MotoGP team. Driving a Ford Fiesta WRC, Rossi defeated former Le Mans driver Dindo Capello’s Citroen by 2.8 seconds after nine stages. Rossi had previously won the event in 2006 and ’07

Allan McNish reckons Dindo Capello will prove to be ‘irreplaceable’ in Audi’s #2 driver line-up as the Italian bowed out of his long Le Mans partnership with McNish and Tom Kristensen after last weekend’s race.
June 15th, 2012
Dindo Capello reckons it will be the week after Le Mans before the fact that he has made his final appearance in the legendary race really hits him. The three-time winner of the 24 Hours is joining regular team-mates Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish in the #2 Audi for the final time this weekend. “At the moment, I do not think too much about that,” Capello told AUTOSPORT.
June 14th, 2012
Tom Kristensen and Dindo Capello believe there is no reason why their #2 Audi cannot match the pace of its provisional pole-sitting sister e-tron in Thursday night’s second Le Mans 24 Hours qualifying session. In first qualifying on Wednesday evening Andre Lotterer put the #1 car on provisional pole by 1.083 seconds over the #2 Audi. Kristensen’s shot at pole in that car had been disrupted by traffic, while on later longer runs team-mate Allan McNish ran into grip issues.
June 13th, 2012
Audi hybrid driver Allan McNish says he is wary of the threat Toyota poses in the Le Mans 24 Hours in spite of the fact that the Japanese manufacturer’s TS030 having not yet been raced. Toyota ran for the first time alongside rivals during the Le Mans test at the beginning of June and ended the day less than 1.5s off the pace of the three Audi R18s in front of it
April 17th, 2012
Audi has signed Peugeot refugee Marc Gene as a reserve driver for the Le Mans 24 Hours. The 38-year-old Spaniard had been part of Peugeot’s Le Mans effort from its inception in 2007 to its abrupt cancellation at the end of 2011, taking victory at Le Mans along the way. In addition to being Audi’s standby for Le Mans, Gene will also race one of the team’s new R18 ultras in the Spa round of the World Endurance Championship in May, substituting for the Timo Bernhard, who is still not fully recovered from his Sebring testing crash
February 29th, 2012
Frenchman Loic Duval has joined Audi’s 2012 Le Mans 24 Hours line-up. The winner of last year’s Sebring 12 Hours with ORECA’s semi-works Peugeot will share a conventional R18 ultra with Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas in the French classic. The 29-year-old’s programme also includes the FIA World Endurance Championship opener at Sebring later this month and the Spa 6 Hours in May.
December 17th, 2011
Audi has begun the first public tests of its 2012 LMP1 car ahead of the new World Endurance Championship. The team did not reveal any details of the machine, the differences to 2011′s R18 or the car’s designation at this stage. After conducting initial tests in private, Audi is in action at Sebring, venue for the 2012 WEC opener in March, this weekend.
September 26th, 2011
Peugeot had the early edge as testing for the 2011 Petit Le Mans began at Road Atlanta on Sunday. The four factory cars from leading contenders Peugeot and Audi were among the 23 crews that attended the first seven-hour test day, with #7 Peugeot drivers Sebastien Bourdais, Simon Pagenaud and Anthony Davidson setting the pace with a 1m08.291s.
June 10th, 2011
Allan McNish is confident that the damage done to the #3 Audi R18 TDI during Tom Kristensen’s accident in the final stages of qualifying for the 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours will not have a negative impact on their race plans. The Scot, who shares the car with Kristensen and Dindo Capello – the same crew that won the event in 2008 – said that while there was significant damage to the left hand side of the car, the tub emerged unscathed.
May 7th, 2011
Tom Kristensen believes that Peugeot deserved its Spa 1000km victory after the Audi legend could finish no higher than third on the debut of the new R18 TDI. Kristensen had been closing in on the second-placed 908 and was less than half a minute behind Nicolas Minassian with an hour to run
March 20th, 2011
Audi is confident that its R15 TDI had the speed to win the Sebring 12 Hours but for the incidents that delayed both its cars. The #1 car of Mike Rockenfeller, Romain Dumas and Timo Bernhard suffered two punctures in close succession in the early hours, the first due to running over debris, and the second after bodywork rubbed on the tyre. Allan McNish, Dindo Capello and Tom Kristensen were fighting the Peugeots for victory until Marc Gene’s 908 collided with Capello, ending both cars’ shot at the win.
March 20th, 2011
Peugeot team boss Olivier Quesnel said he was satisfied that the new 908s ran trouble-free in the Sebring 12 Hours, even though the race victory went to ORECA’s older-specification car.
March 18th, 2011
Peugeot returned to the top in Thursday’s night practice session for the Sebring 12 Hours. After being quickest in the first official test at the start of the week, Peugeot had been slightly behind arch-rival Audi in all the following sessions, although the frontrunners’ pace never quite matched that set in the opening test. During the after-dark session, Peugeot showed its hand a little more, with Anthony Davidson leading the way in the #7 car on a 1m48.901s.
March 14th, 2011
The new Peugeot 908 was quickest on a close-fought first official test day for this weekend’s Sebring 12 Hours. Only one of the latest generation Peugeots ran today, but the Franck Montagny/Stephane Sarrazin/Pedro Lamy car set the quickest time of the opening day in the morning session with a 1m47.678s. That beat Audi’s Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas and Mike Rockenfeller by 0.347 seconds, while the new LMP1 version of the HPD got off to an impressive start with David Brabham taking the car to third in only its second test.
February 22nd, 2011
Former GP2 and Formula Renault 3.5 racer Marco Bonanomi will be reserve driver for Audi’s Le Mans programme this year. The 25-year-old Italian moved to sportscars last season and drove an Audi in the Italian GT championship
October 3rd, 2010
Audi team-mates Dindo Capello and Allan McNish were left in a state of disbelief by the bizarre helmet issue that cost them any hope of victory in this weekend’s Petit Le Mans. Capello was leading the race when the lining of his helmet worked loose, dropping his balaclava in front of his eyes, making it impossible to see where he was going. This issue forced the team to make an unscheduled pitstop, which ended a great race-long dice for the lead with the two Peugeots
October 3rd, 2010
Peugeot claimed an historic one-two in the 13th running of the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. Ultimately it was the quickest car in the race, the #08 Peugeot 908 of Stephane Sarrazin/Franck Montagny/Pedro Lamy that took the win, although it was only in the final two hours that the result was not in doubt. Up until then the Audi R15 of Allan McNish/Dindo Capello/Tom Kristensen had a very real chance of winning, while the second 908 of Anthony Davidson/Marc Gene/Alex Wurz was waiting in the wings on the lead lap
