For Toyota, the 24 Hours of Le Mans had become a kind of taboo. On several occasions the Japanese brand had attempted to win the Sarthe race, regularly failing its attemps. The enormous effort made with the GT-One at the end of the nineties had not served either. With return to endurance in the LMP1 class, Toyota had found strong competition from Audi and Porsche, too superior even as an organization. And so, year after year, the only Japanese manufacturer to have conquered Le Mans was always and only Mazda, surprise winner in 1991 with the Group C car. With the withdrawal of the German teams, Toyota found itself alone, after having missed the success in 2016 with a crazy final lap. In 2018 finally the conditions for aiming for victory were all there and the two TS050s led a quite uneventful race, placing first with Alonso / Buemi / Nakajima and second with Conway / Kobayashi / Lopez.
