Ullrich: Risky tyre strategy right call

Audi Sport boss Dr Wolfgang Ullrich has described the thinking behind the risky tyre strategy which ultimately enabled the marque to claim its 10th Le Mans win. The victorious #2 Audi was tasked with doing two unprecedented five stint runs on a single set of tyres, which was deemed a necessary tactic to reduce its total pitstop time while Peugeot's chasing 908s were able to do at least one extra lap per stint. "Our Peugeot rivals were as strong as ever, with four cars against us," said Ullrich.
