Brendon Hartley – #8 TOYOTA GAZOO Racing GR010:
“It felt good to win the race today, particularly after a tough race here last week. We came back much stronger this week. I want to say massive congratulations to Mike, Kamui and José for winning the drivers’ championship. It was hard fought all season between the two cars and they just came out on top. Also big congratulations to Kazuki for finishing his WEC career with a win and for everything he has achieved. I am sad that it is his last race for us but I’m so pleased for him to finish on a high, having been on such strong form these last two weeks.”
