Fuji WEC: Toyota flexes its muscles in second practice
During Friday afternoon’s Free Practice 2, the Toyota GR010 HYBRID Le Mans Hypercars dominated, with Sebastien Buemi in the #8 car finishing over a second ahead of the closest competitor. Buemi set a time of 1m29.523s, just two tenths slower than Kobayashi’s pole position time from last year. JOTA Porsche took third place, followed by Ferrari and Porsche Penske Motorsport. In the LMP2 class, Louis Deletraz in the WRT ORECA 07 finished fastest, half a second ahead of Pietro Fittipaldi in the JOTA team’s P2 entry. In GTE Am, AF Corse secured a 1-2-3 finish, with Davide Rigon leading the pack. Final practice and qualifying will take place on Saturday. It is expected that Muller will return to Peugeot’s WEC line-up for the Bahrain race.
