Brendon Hartley – #8 TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GR010:
“Le Mans always brings something crazy and this year was no different. Right from the first lap we were dealing with issues. The way the team pulled together to get this one-two was phenomenal, we had to manage the issue and at one point we weren’t even sure we would get to the end. I am incredibly happy for car #7, who have had more than their fair share of bad luck. We are all really good friends and I am so happy to see them take their prize and live through all those emotions. A great win for the team.”
