The World Endurance Championship superseason concluded with the 2019 Le Mans 24 Hours, where late puncture-induced drama for the #7 Toyota handed the win to the sister car.

In this video, Jack Cozens and Tom Errington explain exactly what caused Jose Maria Lopez to have to pit twice to get a right-rear puncture fixed just as the race headed into its final hour.

That incident ultimately handed the overall win to Fernando Alonso, Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi, who also clinched the LMP1 superseason drivers' title.

But that trio will now be split as Alonso ends his stint in the WEC and Brendon Hartley slots into the #8 crew. However, Alonso may still make more appearances for Toyota in other categories.
