RUINED by Bruni making a brainless move from 90 laps down though. Even though the 51 wasn't even classified, the stewards have fined Bruni 15 thousand Euros for that move and have thrown the car out of the results. Which is only fair... and that move had the opposite effect of its intention, since it stuffed it up for the 71 Ferrari as well and put Corvette in 2nd.

There was a report of a crash early during a 30h test at Paul Ricard about a week ago with Nicolas Lapierre driving, no report on the damage. This piece of news suggests that the crash must have been bad enough to write the tub off.

They'll still be at Le Mans with two cars and for the rest of the WEC with one, but... now Le Mans will be their first race with a car that isn't race-tested at all.
