Toyota made a remarkable race, finishing second from 23rd on the grid

Ferrari won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the second consecutive year, narrowly defeating Toyota in a thrilling finish at the 92nd edition of the endurance race. Danish driver Nicklas Nielsen, nearly out of fuel and navigating a wet track, crossed the finish line first in the number 50 499P hypercar.

Nielsen shared the victory with Italian Antonio Fuoco and Spaniard Miguel Molina, completing 311 laps of the Sarthe circuit. Remarkably, the car’s fuel gauge showed only about 2% remaining at the end.

The Toyota GR010 hybrid, driven by Argentine Jose Maria Lopez, Japanese Kamui Kobayashi, and Dutch driver Nyck de Vries, finished just 14.221 seconds behind after starting from 23rd place. Lopez was a late replacement for Briton Mike Conway, who was injured in a cycling accident.

Ferrari’s crew from last year’s victory, consisting of Italians Alessandro Pier Guidi, Antonio Giovinazzi, and Britain’s James Calado, secured third place in the 51 car, enduring a race marked by drizzle and overcast skies.
