2014 La Mans 24 Hours - Toyota
Toyota Racing battled to a podium finish at the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours, but left the Circuit de la Sarthe reflecting on a frustrating race that saw hopes of victory dashed. The No8 Toyota Hybrid TS040 of Anthony Davidson, Nicolas Lapierre and S?bastien Buemi finished third to maintain their lead in the World Endurance Championship and record Toyota?s fifth top-three finish at Le Mans. The team experienced bitter disappointment, however, when the No7 car of Alex Wurz, St?phane Sarrazin and Kazuki Nakajima was sidelined from the race while holding a strong lead. Having started from pole position, the Toyota Hybrid fell victim to electrical problems as the race neared the 14-hour mark.
