"Although it's late in coming, this decision shows the sporting fairness that is applied in the FIA World Endurance Championship and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We are just disappointed that our team was unable to celebrate the result of the no.35 car on the podium. Following the victory of the A442B in 1978, the fourth place of the no.35 A470 is now Alpine's second best overall result at the 24 Hours of Le Mans."
Philippe Sinault, Signatech Alpine Matmut Team Principal
"The Stewards' decision means that Alpine has claimed a third LMP2 podium finish at Le Mans in four years. So that’s some consolation for the team. Some of the infringements penalised were noted and questioned at the end of the morning, however, so it's a shame that the decision was only taken after the finish. I don't like to go back over races with ‘what ifs’, but it is worth bearing in mind that André Negrão was fighting with the no.13 car and that he had to push very hard, putting a bit more pressure on the brakes, which failed 50 minutes from the end. It was undoubtedly at that point that our hopes of an outright podium at the 24 Hours of Le Mans evaporated."
