How the "small things" cost another overdue win at Le Mans
By:

While Toyota has truly broken its Le Mans curse by sealing a hat-trick of wins, the bad luck and frustration is squarely stuck with the #7 crew who once again must swallow defeat

Another Le Mans 24 Hours and another Toyota victory in the face of no manufacturer opposition. Yet the 88th edition of the great race was different from the previous two in which the Japanese manufacturer triumphed, and not just because there weren't any spectators at the rescheduled event.

The pair of Toyota TS050 HYBRIDs were swung into their pit boxes for repairs over the course of a race that didn't provide the flat-out internecine battle of 2018 or 2019, two Le Mans in which they didn't see the inside of the garage. One thing was the same as in 2019, however: the quicker of the two cars didn't win.
