Why the WEC can't continue in its current state
By:

Toyota may not have officially won the Silverstone 6 Hours, but the margin of victory it had on the road was considerable and, probably, very damaging to LMP1's fragile state.

So, Toyota didn't win the Silverstone 6 Hours. But the disqualification of the two TS050 Hybrids and the Japanese manufacturer's decision not to pursue an appeal doesn't change the conclusions that have to be drawn from a race that it utterly dominated.

The most obvious one is that the WEC, in its hour of need, can't go on like this. And it's probably up to Toyota to do something about it.
