After leading much of the race, Ferrari team Risi Competizione came home second in the 84th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The No. 82 Risi Ferrari was passed for the lead late in the race by the No. 68 Ford GT of Dirk Mueller, Joey Hand and Sebastian Bourdais, which would eventually go on to win the GTE Pro class.
Mueller took the checkered flag about a minute ahead of Giancarlo Fisichella in the No. 82 Ferrari, which the Italian driver shares with Mateo Malucelli and Toni Vilander. The No. 69 Ford GT sister car of Scott Dixon, Ryan Briscoe and Richard Westbrook rounded out the top three, giving ford a double podium on the 50th anniversary of their 1966 Le Mans win.
Risi was called into the pits with 15 minutes to go for ongoing problems with its Ferrari 488’s leader lights, however the team elected to keep the car out and may face disqualification as a result. It wasn’t the only problem for a Ferrari throughout the 24 hour affair, with both AF Corse Ferrari 488’s retiring in the night due to mechanical issues.
Scuderia Corsa took the GTE-Am win, with the No. 62 Ferrari 458 Italia of Jeff Segal, Bill Sweedler and Townsend Bell crossing the finish line just ahead of the No. 83 AF Corse 458 of Emmanuel Collard, Francois Perrodo and Rui Aguas. The Clearwater Racing 458 of Mok Weng Sun, Keita Sawa and Robert Bell was fourth.
