Sharing the wheel with Braun were Jon Bennett and veteran prototype heavyweights Loic Duval and Romain Dumas. Like I said, you have four different drivers instead of one.

"It's still not ideal, but I think I can breathe now", Alonso said this week. "I think this is going to be the most exciting 24 ever". "Having the opportunity to join the Whelen Engineering Cadillac was an fantastic experience".
The top 3 cars were the only ones to finish on the lead lap. The crew members are the second most visible part of the team, as they are always working on the cars while fans look on in the garage area and they are the ones that get the TV time when the vehicle makes a pit stop.
"It was an fantastic race, with a relentless pace, so it would have been interesting to see what would have happened if we had been able to race hard to the end". "I can't wait for the next one".

And I think we had one little bubble at the end of the very first stint of the race and from there on, you know, it was just head down and go and really fast pace with our teammates all race long. We just didn't have the pace. "I spent all my time in the night and in a little bit of rain". Yeah, just super proud, super happy.
Alonso indeed wants something to show for this effort when the race ends on Sunday, and he's kept his sense of humour in the lead-up to the weekend. Fittipaldi is being replaced by Albuquerque as the full-time driver and will compete in only the four endurance races on the schedule this year.
