Brendon Hartley – #8 TOYOTA GAZOO Racing TS050:
“It’s a really nice feeling to take my first victory with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, especially to do it on home soil as well. It’s the last time we get to race the TS050 HYBRID at Fuji so to win was great; I’m going to enjoy this moment. We had a pretty clean race and Kazuki did an amazing job on the intermediate tyres. We had the advantage over the #7 car with success handicap today but that will not be the case in Shanghai when we can expect a very close race.”
