Toyota has already announced they will come back next year with a brand new TS050 with a new ICE which will probably be turbocharged. It's ironic though that car manufacturer which has supported hybrids the strongest (even making them the basis of their ranges) hasn't done much with their hybrid race cars.

Indeed, Audi is losing less time than Porsche in the pits. Toyota the worst in that aspect.

I hope so, and I hope Nissan keeps at it for the long term. Having four manufacturers duking it out at the top of P1 would be great.

Apparently #7 had a puncture and that's why it had to came back to the pits.

Indeed, WEC/LM is where proper racing is at.

#8 has been repaired and already out on the track again. There's a safety car so it has lost relatively little time.

Drama llamas causing problems at Audi. Weird for them to have cocked up the tyres so badly so early on, but they're certainly not written off yet.

It seems like there were yellow flags in the part of the track where the Audi #8 crashed and that's why the GT cars were going so slowly at that moment.

And we are back to a Porsche one-two-three for the moment.

And for no apparent reason the surviving Corvette is leading GTE Pro.

And another 911 gone pop on track.. perhaps they didn't get the memo about the GT3 recalls?

Edit: Behind a safety car too.. hope this isn't a trend for them.

The GTE Pro battle between the Chevrolet, the Aston and the Ferrari is magnificent!

It is! Anyone who says that they shouldn't do GT cars at LeMans is a fool.

It's raining! Porsche #17 loses the lead to the Audi #9.

EDIT Almost loses, the Audi is not yet in front of the Porsche.
