Toyota wins as Porsche/Michelin seals 2017 WEC crown

Victory for the N°8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid/Michelin at the 6 Hours of Shanghai in the hands of Buemi/Davidson/Nakajima did not prevent Porsche Team from securing a third straight FIA WEC title. The German squad’s Timo Bernard, Brendon Hartley and Earl Bamber claimed the 2017 Drivers’ crown. 

The 6 Hours of Shanghai, penultimate round of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship, was dominated by Toyota Gazoo Racing which saw its N°7 car qualify on pole position before the two Japanese prototypes topped the order for much of the race itself.

A Toyota one-two appeared to be on the cards until the N°7 car of Conway/Kobayashi/Lopez tangled with the N°91 Porsche GTE, leading to an unscheduled pit stop. The N°8 sister car went on to seal the day’s victory, with second spot going instead to the N°2 Porsche 919 Hybrid/Michelin (Bernhard/Hartley/Bamber) which made sure of a third straight Manufacturers’ title for Porsche Team. The N°1 Porsche (Jani/Lotterer/Tandy) was third.

Runner-up honours for the N°2 car allowed Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley and Earl Bamber to wrap up the Drivers’ championship to add to their Le Mans triumph in June.

There was another splendid stand-off in LM GTE Pro which saw six different cars top the leaderboard. First place was finally pocketed by the N°67 Ford/Michelin after Priaulx/Tincknell finished 11 seconds clear of the N°91 Porsche/Michelin which was delayed by its late collision with the Toyota prototype. The N°51 Ferrari (Calado/Pier Guidi) was a further eight seconds adrift in third place, but that was enough for Ferrari/Michelin to earn the GT Manufacturers’ title.

The N°98 Aston Martin (Lauda/Lamy/Dalla Lana) took the LM GTE Am spoils, ahead of the N°86 and N°77 Porsches, and there was a third LMP2 victory in as many races for Vaillante-Rebellion. Its N°31 car (Canal/Prost/Senna) was joined on the podium by the N°36 Alpine and its N°13 sister car. Former actor Jackie Chan officially flagged away the Chinese race but his team’s N°38 prototype finished just shy of the class’s podium on home soil.

The last round of the 2017 FIA WEC will take teams to Bahrain on November 18.
