Event 2 - Fuji

Toyota Gazoo Racing maintained their perfect 2019-2020 FIA World Endurance Championship season record with a one-two finish on home ground in the 6 Hours of Fuji on Sunday.

It was a seventh win in eight years for the reigning World Champions at the Japanese circuit, with Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Brendon Hartley driving the No8 TS050 Hybrid to victory from pole position.

The team will have to race with an increased handicap at the next championship round, the 4 Hours of Shanghai on 10 November. This will be equal for both cars, as each crew has the same number of World Championship points.
