Peugeot has claimed a dominant one-two in the season-opener for the 2010 ALMS championship season, the Sebring 12 Hours.

More importantly, five of the drivers in the factory team’s quinella are former F1 drivers: Alexander Wurz, Anthony Davidson and Marc Gené won in the #7 Peugeot 908 diesel and finished ahead of Nicolas Minassian, yesterday’s birthday boy Pedro Lamy and Sébastien Bourdais in the #8 sister car.

The event featured a host of former F1 pilots. Also competing in the LMP1 class was former Benetton and Dallara pilot Emanuele Pirro, who drove a storming early stint to split the two Peugeots in his Drayson Lola Judd.

David Brabham (Honda) was driving in the LMP2 class. The GT2 class also had representation, with Gianmaria Bruni (Ferrari 430), Eric van de Poele (Ferrari 430), Olivier Beretta (Corvette) and Jan Magnussen (Corvette) driving.
