Porsche's best WEC podium chance is at Fuji, says Makowiecki
Porsche has struggled to compete with Toyota and Ferrari in sportscar racing this year, with only one podium finish. However, driver Kevin Estre is hopeful that Porsche can return to the podium as the World Endurance Championship (WEC) moves to Asia. He believes that the Fuji track in Japan may be more suited to the Porsche’s strengths compared to the challenging Bahrain track. The Porsche team suffers from higher degradation, a lack of grip, and a lack of consistency. Estre believes that they need to improve in every area to be competitive. While a podium finish is still possible, teammate Michael Christensen does not believe that a victory is likely with the current performance gap to the leading cars. The Porsche team acknowledges that there is still work to be done to improve the reliability and speed of the car.
