It seems that track conditions suited Peugeot better on Sunday compared to practice and qualifying, as Audi seemed to underadjust their cars to the conditions and adopted a conservative strategy on the #8 after the #7 was withdrawn. Audi still has a shot at the ILMC teams championship, but the #7's DNF makes it hard to win back the manufacturers' title unless Peugeot has similiar issues, which they might at PLM, which has just as many cars entered on a faster, narrower track with more stuff to hit, and the LMPC/GTC pro-am classes.

Peugeot will need to be on their toes for PLM, where Audi does have a baseline from last year and data from Silverstone, and for China, where neither Audi or Peugeot have raced.
