The crew formed by the Italian Antonio Fuoco, the Spaniard Miguel Molina and the Dane Nicklas Nielsen will start from pole position on Saturday at Le Mans.
The Ferrari N.50 will start from pole position on Saturday for the 91st edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, ahead of its sister car, the Ferrari N.51, after setting the fastest time in the Hyperpole contested Thursday evening on the Bugatti circuit. During this Hyperpole, which determines the first four rows in each category (Hypercar, LMP2 and LMGTE AM), the crew formed by the Italian Antonio Fuoco, the Spaniard Miguel Molina and the Dane Nicklas Nielsen is the only one to have ped under the 3 min 23 sec mark.
The Toyotas, favorites of this centenary edition in the premier category of Hypercars, will only start 3rd with the Toyota N.8, winner in 2022 and 5th with the N.7. The Porsche N.75 was inserted between the two cars of the Japanese brand. The Hyperpole was interrupted about ten minutes shortly before the end of the session due to the start of a fire for the Cadillac N.3 of Sébastien Bourdais. The crew, a provisional 3rd time on the grid, will start 8th.
