The #14 Jaguar has stopped close to the track, sparking yellow flags - and Fisico has now had time to adjust the driver selector so the live timing gives proper credit for his work.

The Mercedes #88 (Vauthier) Fisico was chasing has had to pit with possible brake failure. So Fisico is now 5th.

Fisico is 5 seconds behind the car he's pursuing (for some reason it is still a fight for P5) with 33 minutes to go. He's 0.7 seconds faster per lap.

The second-placed #72 SMP (Rigon) has a drive-through penalty for overtaking under a yellow flag. I think Fisico is just close enough to benefit from this, but I'm not sure.

Fisico successfully got past the #72 SMP as the latter took its penalty. Fisico is now P5!

The marshal who picked up the bigger debris nearly got hit by a car... ...and Fisico's pit stop is under investigation :(

The #4 Bentley and #8 Mercedes are under investigation for yellow-flag infringements. The latter is ahead of Fisico. Meanwhile, the #27 Lambourghini has had to pit with a tyre problem.

10 minutes to go. The #4 Mercedes has been cleared of wrongdoing under full-course yellow and Fisico is proceeding well in 5th (albeit with an investigation of his pit stop in progress).

Fisico and his colleagues have just been cleared of wrongdoing in their pitstop. Phew!

The #75 Audi delaminated on the finishing straight, slowing enough so the AF Corse immediately behind was obliged to hit it. The Audi is out, so Fisico is up to P4.

Fisico is 6 seconds behind the podium-placed Perera, but there's only 2 laps to go.
