Too early to rule out #7 Toyota from WEC title fight – Hirakawa

Heading into the penultimate round of the WEC season at Fuji, the #8 Toyota GR010 HYBRID, driven by Hirakawa, Buemi, and Hartley, holds the lead in the drivers’ standings with 115 points. The #7 Toyota crew, despite winning at Monza, trails by 23 points, tied with the Ferrari trio. The race at Monza, along with the upcoming eight-hour Bahrain race, will determine the championship, as a maximum of 65 points are still up for grabs. Hirakawa emphasizes the threat posed by the #7 car, pointing out its strong performance at Monza and the uncertainty of the outcome at Bahrain. He acknowledges the increased competition from Ferrari, Porsche, and Peugeot, making the race for positions 5 and 6 challenging. However, Hirakawa remains confident in Toyota’s abilities at Fuji and looks forward to the race.
