8 Hours of Bahrain: Last qualifying session of the season for Team Peugeot TotalEnergies

The Bahrain International Circuit will host tomorrow the FIA World Endurance Championship season-closer and the last race of the 2023 season for Team Peugeot TotalEnergies.
After three free practices, where the two PEUGEOT 9X8 got reacquainted with the 5.412km track it was time for the qualifying session for Team Peugeot TotalEnergies.

Paul Di Resta, at the wheel of the #93 PEUGEOT 9X8 and Nico Müller onboard the #94 were on duty for the 15-minutes qualifying session, alongside the 10 other Hypercars that will take part to this last round. This session was complicated for both PEUGEOT 9X8, with a small incident for Nico Müller (#94 9X8) that went out of the track in his push lap due to a short loss of power steering. Paul Di Resta (#93 9X8) was not able to do a clean lap as he had to compensate the lack of low-speed traction in his fast lap. The Bahrain circuit is famous for being hard on the tyre degradation and this will be a key element for tomorrows’ race, to get the best possible result.

Paul Di Resta ended this session on 10th position with the #93 PEUGEOT 9X8 followed by Nico Müller, 11th.

Tomorrow’s 8 Hours of Bahrain will start at 14h local time (12h CEST) and you can follow the two PEUGEOT 9X8 live on the FIA WEC platforms or on the Peugeot Sport social media.
