Brendon Hartley – #8 TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GR010:
“Clearly it’s disappointing not to score points today. It was looking really good. Séb had a great start in the first stint, then we had the issue. That’s racing sometimes. It’s obviously better that it happens here than at Le Mans but it’s a pity and it hurts our championship chances. On the other hand, I’m very happy for the team to win for the first time this season. Car #7 drove a great race to bring home the victory for the team. Now it’s full focus for the whole team on Le Mans.”
