Cars Porsche Protest dismissed in Bahrain! Ferrari remains for the time being GT world champion
Porsche Macan review
The Porsche Macan is a sports car in an SUV suit. It's starting to show its age, despite a recent facelift, but is still the driver's choice.In standard form, the Porsche costs £47,780 and is powered by a gruff and rather characterless 265hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine.
Porsche has not come through with his! The stewards announced at night from Saturday to Sunday that they have rejected the protest of the Zuffenhausen.
Porsche had filed the protest after the Ferrari-Duo James Calado / Alessandro Pier Guidi had only taken the lead through a presumed launch of # 92 (Estre / Jani / Christensen) for twelve minutes before running. Michael Christensen could continue the journey after a short service life in the outlet zone of curve 14.
As a result, race master Eduardo Freitas was placed a place of space. Just when Pier Guidi wanted Christensen, this went to the box for a last splash. Pier Guidi came in a lap later and stayed at the exit just before Christensen. The Ferrari pilot then drove race and World Cup title home. In a Porsche success in the race, the Zuffenhausen had brought the World Cup crown.
