Morning practice is the rank order of performing the running with tires which are not intended in the final wet bad, it could be finished good balance.
The start of the final Kobayashi in charge. Limber spin, and was about to hit nearly in place it has been in contact with another car shortly after the start. Although the difference between the pre and would pause in order to avoid contact had opened, damage to the machine continued to run at without 13th position. Initially was a Kobayashi which the fuel was not raised a heavy pace, the fuel I went up the ranking as the lighter. There is also a provisional ranking vehicle ahead of the pit is I went to pit of routine in the 32 lap became the first place. Kobayashi so was getting the feeling that go in their own free replacement tires in the stint, he complained of a tire non-exchange operations in radio. Muto is without replacing the tires, has returned in the 9th to the course.
Muto is fast, and was laps at a steady pace. End was also getting difficulty in running and maintaining the grip of the tires, but continues to travel without dropping the pace. However, since the control is becoming more difficult, and will have a contact twice, it will undergo a penalty, final ranking was the 13-position but received a checkered 11th.
This year, Muto in for the first time in four years GT, Kobayashi has been fought in the new combination that debuted rookie this year. Given that it fought with a combination of experience is less driver, it is thought that it has send a very dark season of the content. This is also the people of the fans with us to cheer, it is thanks to gave me your support sponsor companies like. We would deeply thank.
"Strategy of tire-free exchange I think that was good. But, it is becoming difficult to late control, I dropped the ranking. Early on to be able to increase the ranking, I thought to be able to earn points Because, I'm sorry. Thank you for this year one year. "
