In the end, it took a virtually flawless performance to win the 90th running of the Le Mans 24 Hours, as the No8 Toyota GR010 Hypercar crossed the line after a metronomic display.
It was a fifth consecutive win for Toyota and a fourth for Sebastien Buemi who took the top step of the podium alongside team newcomer Ryo Hirakawa and Brendon Hartley, who qualified the car on pole.
The No7 Toyota of Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José Maria López came in second; its challenge neutered by a small issue with the motor that cost it a lap, while nearest challengers Glickenhaus finished five laps down in third.
