· Some important learnings gathered about the circuit during the free practices

· Stoffel Vandoorne, Peugeot Sport reserve driver, came to support the team during the qualifications
The first weekend of the Team PEUGEOT TotalEnergies at Spa-Francorchamps started with three free practice sessions where the engineers and mechanics gathered important data and information about this legendary track loved by passionate fans and drivers.
As often at Spa, the weather was unstable today and it’s under the sun that the PEUGEOT 9X8 #93 and #94 ran the 15-minute qualifying session.
Jean-Eric Vergne at the wheel of the #93 9X8 and Gustavo Menezes onboard the #94 took part in the session that was interrupted with one red flag at the very beginning. At the restart, the two Peugeot Sport drivers, despite all their efforts, could not get one clean lap. As a result, they could not get the full potential out of their Hybrid Hypercar despite good consistency on this very demanding circuit. The Team PEUGEOT TotalEnergies 9X8 will start tomorrow’s race from the 5th and 6th row.
Stoffel Vandoorne, Peugeot Sport reserve driver is at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend, at home, to cheer for the team and bring his experience of the track.
The two PEUGEOT 9X8 will start the TotalEnergies 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship, tomorrow at 12h45 and you will be able to follow the race live on the FIA WEC platforms.
