It was in third position when it entered the pits, but then it decided to fire up properly and get a bit further from a podium finish.

But if you think that stops a dedicated team at the Nürburgring 24 half an hour before midnight, think again. Foam, many fast hands with towels, green light to go back out there. It’s wet, it’s dark, cars are crashing into each other and losing wheels, so whoever survives the night is already a hero.
