    OFFICIAL #F1 Report: Toyota - 24h Le Mans - Race Facts (UPDATE 2)

    TOYOTA RACING: LE MANS 24 HOURS UPDATE 2. Saturday 22 June 2013.

    TS030 HYBRID #7 (Alex Wurz, Nicolas Lapierre, Kazuki Nakajima)
    Grid: 5th

    ---
    Alex took over from Nicolas, with the #7 in fifth. A safety car with 19 hours left moved the #7 directly behind the #8. Racing resumed briefly before an incident caused another safety car. As Alex approached the third pit stop of his stint, he lost around 30 seconds conserving fuel on his final lap but soon after two of the leading cars suffered problems, lifting the #7 to third. Alex completed four stints on the same set of slick tyres before Kazuki took over.

    Alex Wurz: We are just through a quarter of the race. We have seen Le Mans is not an easy race. You can never feel secure or too confident here, and that goes for all competitors. Now is the time, before the night, to get into a rhythm and hope that everything runs okay.

    TS030 HYBRID #8 (Anthony Davidson, Sbastien Buemi, Stphane Sarrazin)
    Grid: 4th

    ---
    Sbastien swapped with Anthony at the #8 car's fifth pit stop. He held on to fourth place despite pressure from Alex during the safety car periods and that became second when problems struck two cars ahead. Sbastien ran four trouble-free stints on the same set of slick tyres on a dry track before handing over second place to Stphane.

    Sbastien Buemi: Alex was behind me in the safety car period but I was able to pull away a bit. I did my maximum. It is difficult to follow the Audi because they are quicker than us on the straight but we are pushing. The car is feeling good in the lower temperatures; the track is cooler and I felt very comfortable.
