24 Hours Le Mans 2021 / Hyperpole: Kobayashi is super, Porsche beats Ferrari |  FormulaPassion.it

Nothing to do for the Alpine and the two Glickenhaus: the Toyota dominated qualifying for the 2021 24 Hours of Le Mans, a 30-minute Hyperpole interrupted by a red flag for Kevin Estre’s exit from the Indianapolis stretch that damaged his Porsche 911. Kamui Kobayashi was faster than Brendon Hartley trimming the brand mate driving the twin Toyota # 8 295 thousandths. Thanks to a time of 3’23 ″ 900, Toyota # 7 will start from pole position to the delight of the Japanese and fellow crewmates Mike Conway and José Maria Lopez. Nicolas Lapierre in the Alpine stopped 1.6 seconds from the best time, with Olivier Pla’s Glickenhaus # 708 not far from the bang and slower than the French car by less than a tenth. Romain Dumas’ Glickenhaus # 709 completes the Hypercar class, three seconds behind Kobayashi’s Toyota.

Splendid in the LMP2 class Antonio Felix Da Costa, who took his car to pole position in class by trimming half a second in Louis Deletraz’s WRT. Third time for the G-Drive of Nyck De Vries, fresh off the title in Formula E. In the GTE-Pro class nothing to do for the factory Porsches with Estre ko and Gianmaria Bruni fifth, but the German manufacturer is still at the start at the pole thanks to Dries Vanthoor who gave two tenths to the Ferrari 488 by Daniel Serra. Third place for Nicholas Tandy’s Corvette, fourth the other red of AF Corse entrusted to James Calado. The GTE-Am class closes the picture in which Julien Andlauer took the Porsche of Dempsey-Proton to pole position ahead of the other 911 of GR Racing. Third Matteo Cairoli with the Porsche of the Project 1 team, the Ferrari Cetilar of Antonio Fuoco completes the second row. Appointment on Saturday with the race that will start at 16:00.
