  • La Toyota TS050 Hybrid N.8 du pilote japonais Kazuki Nakajima au cours d'une séance d'essais libres le 4 juin 2017 sur le circuit des 24 heures du Mans

Mais Earl Bamber, Brendon Hartley et surtout Timo Bernhard méritaient de gagner. Tout reposait alors sur la Porsche N.2, rentrée en urgence aux stands samedi à 18h30, quand la température sur la piste était encore supérieure à 37 degrés. L'important est d'être endurant de voir la ligne d'arrivée.

Du côté des GT, la course n'aura pas été moins folle que chez les protos.

Samedi soir, à 18 h 30, Porsche est en plein doute: trois des quatre Toyota sont placées dans les quatre premiers et la n° 2 souffre. La N°8 (Buemi/Davidson/Nakajima) a eu un problème de transmission à l'avant et elle a eu des réparations pendant deux heures. Elle a été percutée et Nicolas Lapierre, alors au volant, n'a pas pu revenir aux stands. La Porsche n°1, en route vers la victoire après les défaillances des Toyota, a été contrainte à l'abandon ce dimanche.

He, however, said a detailed discussion would be held on the matter within the JD (U). He also described Kovind's candidature as a new social awakening.

Les vainqueurs de l'année dernière seront-ils les grands perdants de cette édition des 24 Heures du Mans? Rien n'y a fait, et la seule TS050 Hybrid à l'arrivée a dû se contenter d'une neuvième place très loin de pouvoir satisfaire la marque. Mais la machine s'enraye.

Débarrassée de la menace japonaise, la Porsche N.1 a pris les commandes, tentant de ménager la mécanique en gérant son avance, pour éviter toute mauvaise surprise. La Porsche 919 Hybrid #2 immobilisée en début de course pour un souci d'hybridation revient fort derrière, et cravache pour rattraper les deux tours et demi de retard sur la LMP2 #38. Une heure plus tard, le prototype autrichien abandonnait. Un bizutage achevé avec le prix Jean-Rondeau, récompensant le titre de meilleur rookie, et la fierté d'avoir été en tête du classement général pendant plus de deux heures dimanche. Prenant l'avantage sur l'Oreca 07 - Gibson #13 à la 16e heure de course, elle profite de l'hécatombe des LM P1 pour s'afficher en tête à 3 h 00 de l'arrivée. Une belle première pour le rookie français Thomas Laurent (19 ans) accompagné du Chinois Ho-Pin Tung et du Britannique Oliver Jarvis. "Rester concentré de bout en bout, c'est mon objectif", avait-il confié au Point.fr avant le départ, lui dont la maturité ressemble tellement à celle d'Esteban Ocon, le jeune pilote français en F1. Le podium est complété par une autre LMP2, la N.13 de Vaillante Rebellion (Nelson Piquet Jr, David Heinemeier Hansson, Mathias Beche).
