TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Reigns in Bahrain
Dec. 16, 2019
For this race, the World Champions faced a severe success handicap, which reduces hybrid and fuel use per lap, but overcame a strong challenge thanks to strong strategy, fast pit stops and consistent performance, as well as impressive reliability over the 1,390km race. Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José María López, in the #7 TS050 HYBRID, won for the second time this season to retake the lead in the drivers' World Championship. The #8 TS050 HYBRID of Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Brendon Hartley, battling a success handicap 0.21secs per lap more than its sister car, finished a lap behind in second to complete a perfect result for the team; a third one-two from four races this season.
