The key is in the third Toyota TS050 Hybrid


on February 2, has been drawn as an important day in the World of Resistance is concerned. However, it is the day chosen by the ACO to publish the entry list for the WEC and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but also the day in which Toyota Gazoo Racing will announce its sports program in the category. Secured his presence in the class LMP1 hybrid to full-time, the great question to solve is if eventually Toyota will field three cars in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and therefore the riders that make up the ‘line up’ of the brand.

In the case of aligning two Toyota TS050 Hybrid full-time, the surprises that may be in the presentation of the team tend to zero. However, the changes in the payroll of pilots would be minimal with the only novelty of the arrival of José María ‘Pechito’ Lopez to fill the gap to Stéphane Sarrazin. In this way, the first of the Toyota TS050 Hybrid would be for the trio formed by Anthony Davison, Sébastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima, while the second drive of the LMP1-H Toyota would be piloted by Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and the own José María ‘Pechito’ Lopez.

In case you have a third Toyota TS050 Hybrid in the 24
Hours of Le Mans
, and therefore in the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, a program that
you could even extend to the event at Fuji, because it is the home race
for the brand, the situation changes completely. According to points ‘Dailysportscar’,
Stéphane Sarrazin would go on to have a program parcial with the third prototype,
that would be accompanied by the japanese Ryo Hirakawa. More doubts arise around the
last pilot of the training, the entire time your program on DTM seems to rule out
Loïc Duval. In this aspect, Pipo Derani seems to have gained whole.
