Brendon Hartley – #8 TOYOTA GAZOO Racing TS050:
“We did our absolute maximum and it was a strong team performance to get two cars on the podium. We had some nice battles with our LMP1 rivals and even the LMP2s because lapping those guys was tricky. In the end, the Rebellion was quick and they didn’t make any mistakes so they deserved to win the race. We did everything we could to put them under pressure but it wasn’t enough.”
