Upsetting the odds in what was the most feared round of the season and one that promised little, the Vitaphone Racing Team bagged the Team title and now holds a four point lead in the Drivers' championship.
The fifth straight Team victory earns the German squad a rightful place in the history of this series. No other scuderia has ever managed a similar feat. The second spot won by Müller/Ramos and Bertolini/Bartels' fifth saw Vitaphone Racing make the title a mathematical certainty.
The Drivers' crown is still there for the taking as the reigning champions leave Paul Ricard holding a four point lead over Hezemans/Kumpen, who were forced to retire.
