Rise up takes Shanghai victory
Toyota Gazoo Racing’s reign of dominance is over. Its seven-race profitable streak, which dates again to the 6 Hours of Silverstone through the 2018/19 season, was snapped within the four Hours of Shanghai. As a substitute, it was Rise up Racing’s day, the No. 1 R-13 Gibson of Gustavo Menezes, Norman Nato and Bruno Senna taking the win after a hard-fought race in China.
The victory got here after a restoration drive by the workforce following a messy begin to the race which noticed the automobile drop to sixth from pole. Nato took the beginning and struggled for tire temperature, which brought on him to get swallowed up by the pack.
After that, although, the workforce used technique — taking contemporary rubber early on as a substitute of double stinting within the opening hours like its rivals — and pace. All three drivers contributed to the gradual climb up the order and into the lead, taking a cushty win over the handicapped Toyotas.
