The Irish actor was the victim of a collision at the wheel of his Porsche. His single-seater was immobilized for long minutes.
Michael Fassbender was the victim of a track excursion at the wheel of the No. 93 Porsche of the Proton Competition team shortly after 11 p.m. The German car remained immobilized in the gravel pit at the Indianapolis corner after contact with the Ferrari n°61. The Hollywood star does not seem physically affected but his car seems seriously damaged.
His Porsche 911 was immobilized for several minutes in its box. It should be noted that following this contact, the French pilot Vincent Abril, at the wheel of the AF Corse 61, was penalized with one minute of stop-and-go.
This road trip, the second after a first in practice on Wednesday, is in line with a very complicated start for the successful actor, who is discovering the 24 Hours this year. Stuck at the back of the peloton, Fassbender shows a real disbursement on the competition, lapping at more than 4 minutes per lap. “Four minutes is cooking boiled eggs“, joked Franck Lagorce, consultant on Eurosport, before continuing:”It is dangerous at this level. Le Mans is the most dangerous race in the world, it is not enough to pretend to have a steering wheel.”
