Saturday means qualifying day for Team Peugeot TotalEnergies. This weekend at Monza, 5th round of the FIA World Endurance Championship, started with three free practices. Thanks to those sessions the team was able to try several set-ups and ended on top of the last free practice with a lap in 1:35.878 by Jean-Eric Vergne onboard the #93 PEUGEOT 9X8.
After a crowded autograph session, the tifosis took their seats in the grandstands for the qualifying of the 6 Hours of Monza. Jean-Eric Vergne was at the wheel of the #93 PEUGEOT 9X8 and Gustavo Menezes in the #94 for 15 minutes of track action. This session showed the performance improvements of the PEUGEOT 9X8 on the track it made its debut last season. In the end of the qualifying, the first 7 cars are only separated by 5 tenths and Jean-Eric Vergne (PEUGEOT #93) qualified on 4th position with a lap in 1:35.662, only 3 tenths aways from the pole position, followed by Gustavo Menezes in the #94 with a lap in 1:35.780.
The team is satisfied with this session and is looking forward to the race tomorrow where the goal will be to get as close as possible to the podium. The start of the 6 Hours of Monza will be given at 12h30 (local time) and you can follow the Team Peugeot TotalEnergies live on our social media channels and on the FIA WEC platforms.
