Michael Fassbender equalled his previous best result in the European Le Mans Series by finishing fourth in the 4-Hours of the Red Bull Ring in Austria last weekend.
The Formula One Grand Prix circuit near Spielberg is the second stop of the 2021 European Le Mans Series.
Driving the Porsche 911 RSR that he shares with his professional teammates, former World Endurance Championship LMGTE Pro World Champion Richard Lietz and Felipe Laser, the trio finished fourth on Sunday.
It equals their previous best result together, in Belgium last August, but on this occasion, they out-performed their team leader Christian Ried and his co-drivers Matt Campbell and Cooper MacNeil who finished sixth in the rain-interrupted race.
“We were hoping for rain for ourselves. But when this heavy shower set in and there was water everywhere on the track, I thought: For heaven’s sake, what did we wish for? At this stage, it was all about not losing the car. Fortunately, I succeeded. I am very happy with this good result,” Fassbender said.
