    The Audi is in front because the #9 did a 7 lap stint and had a quicker pitstop. That means it needs a one lap earlier stop before the end.

    So the driver is from the #29 Audi?

    It doesn't matter much if they now do a 7 or 8 lap stint - they still have the advantage. The Rowe Team Manager just said the same, their stop will be much longer.

    It's van der Linde in the #29 car, Rast is now leading in the WRT Audi #9

    BMW now 3rd again after its last stop, which was 2:29. Now around 1:10-1:20 behind P2. Both Audis only with a splash and dash in the end. Maybe #29 can get up to 2nd in the end?

    Maybe. How long does it take to put three laps of fuel in the car?

    They are not using typical motorsport equipment, so it takes some time. Audi leads 1:21 before P2 which is 1:23 in front of P3. Will be a close call.

    Rain at Brünnchen reported, Rain tires are now ready in the pits at Audi and BMW. Clouds are very dark.

    Edit: #29 now 8:25 laptime, fastest of all drivers now.

    Edit 2: #98 Rowe can keep up, only 0.2 seconds slower. Still 1:21 behind.

    Both Audis will need to pit after this lap, no minimum pitstop time.

    Another edit: Rain on the helicopter cam!

    That would have been enough for #29, but trouble while refueling...

    And now wet tires for #29!

    Edit: That decision may have just saved them, looks like at least one section of the track is pretty wet

    Might as well put on the wets now since they lost time with that screw up. Especially now that its raining around most of the track.

    I have a feeling that that M6 will push too hard on the main straight, and won't be able to stop at the end of the straight

    Rast has been off. No damage though. #29 can win this.

    1 more lap. Will #9 pit or not? I would not pit.
