On the last run of Q2 on the extremely challenging city circuit of Macau, John was only a sector away from passing through to Q3 for the first time in his career. However, a error under braking for the last turn has his Citroën C-Elysée lose control and hit the wall with the back of his car.
The good news is that John is on the attack. The other good news is the exceptional work of the Sébastien Loeb Racing team to piece the car back together.
One race left. One race to give it all. One race to attack. One race to win and mark the spirits.
"The Macau circuit leaves no room for error, with long and quick turns. My 10th place on the grid of the Opening Race helped me believe that a good result was possible, but hitting the wall ruined my chances. On Sunday, i was much less confident under the rain. I need to put this weekend behind me now and concentrate on the season finale in Qatar"
