Morning of free practice Although ranking because it was traveling at a tire that is not assumed in the finals in the wet was bad, it was possible to finish a well-balanced.
Start of final Kobayashi in charge. Limber spin, and was about to hit nearly in place has been in contact with another car immediately after start. Although the difference between the previous and would be paused in order to avoid contact had opened, damage to the machine continued to run at no 13th position. First but was Kobayashi which the fuel was not raised a heavy pace, the fuel I went up the order as made lightly. There is also a provisional order limber of the pit is I went to pit of routine in the 32 lap which became # 1. Kobayashi so was getting the feeling that go in their own free exchange the tires stint, I complained of a tire-free exchange strategy in wireless. Muto is without replacing the tire, was restored in 9th to the course.
Muto is fast, and was laps at a steady pace. The end was still getting difficulty in running and maintaining the grip of the tires, but had continued to travel without sacrificing pace. However, since the control is becoming more difficult, and would be to contact twice, and would be penalized, final ranking was 13th 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 fought with a combination of experience fewer drivers, it is thought that he send a very dark season of content. This is also the people of the fans who have cheered, it is thanks to the gave us your support sponsor companies like. I would deeply thank.
"Strategy of tire-free exchange I think that was good. But, it is becoming difficult to end control, I dropped the ranking. Early on to be able to increase the ranking, it was thought to be able to earn points Because, I'm sorry. Thank you for this year one year. "
