24 Hours of Le Mans - Audi Leads With 53 Minutes Left

 When I woke up Audi had taken the lead from Peugeot and the 2nd place Peugeot decided to not change to intermediate rain tires from slicks while in the pits, with the tires waiting to be put on. The Peugeot just spun, part of the circuit must be dry enough for the driver to make the call but it was a bad call, he is losing time and he did do the 360. 2 minutes and 40 seconds separate the Audi and the Peugeot with 45 minutes remaining. The Peugeot is starting to get enough grip on the dry sections of the circuit that he is starting to post faster lap times but 2:40 is a lot of time to make up and they both have to pit for gas, meaning that Audi can change tires if they need to while losing a minimum amount of time to Peugeot.
