Le Mans 24 Hours, June 15-16, 2019
Toyota and Fernando Alonso won Le Mans 24 Hours at the first attempt as he and team-mates Sebastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima finally ended Toyota's long drought. Toyota had never won the sportscar race despite years of trying but finally delivered. Alonso's victory completes the second part of motorsport's 'triple crown' for the two-time Formula 1 world champion.
Jenson Button, the 2009 F1 world champion, was competing in the non-hybrid LMP1 class for the Russian SMP team. His car was
out of contention early on after spending two hours in the pits with an engine problem. It rejoined the race but retired with engine failure during the final hour.
Can Alonso now win Indianapolis? Will he stop F1 at the end of this year to focus on Indycar totally, or stay in F1 and just do the Indy 500 again next year?
First Time To Le Mans?
Le Mans can be bewidering and there are a lot of options....
