LE MANS, June 16 -- Full race results of the 24 Hours of Le Mans at the Circuit de la Sarthe, round eight of the 2018-19 FIA World Endurance Championship season.
Late heartbreak for the #7 Toyota crew hands victory to Alonso, Buemi and Nakajima in the final hour of the race, while there is GTE success for Ferrari. Fernando Alonso claimed back-to-back victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, overtaking the rival Toyota on the final hour before holding on to win the famous sportscar race.The #8 Toyota of Alonso, Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi also became 2018-2019 World Endurance Champions after the sister car, the #7 Toyota, was beset by problems in the final hour, including a puncture that denied them what had seemed like a certain victory. Former F1 world champion Alonso was part of Toyota's winning team a year ago on his first outing at the event.
LE MANS, June 15 -- Lights are out and racing is underway at the Circuit de La Sarthe for the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, with an all-Toyota front row led by the #7 car of trio of Mike Conway, Kamui Koboyashi and Jose Maria Lopez.
Second after Thursday’s qualifying is the #8 car of last year’s winners Sebastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and former Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso. The 37-year-old Spaniard is hoping to add back-to-back Le Mans 24 Hour titles to his two F1 trophies in his last appearance at the classic race. Alonso is one of the main drawcards at the 2019 event – despite an almost certain win for the Toyota hybrids, barring an accident. The Japanese team was unchallenged last year after Porsche and Audi pulled out, leaving Toyota Gazoo Racing as the only manufacturer in the top LMP1 category.
But it’s far from just the elite prototype class that brings the 250,000 spectators to the Le Mans 24 Hours, with professional race drivers mixing it with amateurs in the other LMP2, GTE Pro and GTE Am categories. The top LMP2 starter is the #28 TDS Racing Oreca of François Perrodo, Loïc Duval and Mattheiu Vaxiviere, who inherited the category pole after the Graff squad was stripped of it, following Vincent Capillaire’s failing to come in for a random weight check by the stewards. Aston Martin took top spot in the GTE Pro class thanks to Marco Sorensen who put the #95 Vantage ahead of Ford, Corvette and Porsche. Porsche also locked out the top three places in GTE Am, with Matteo Cairoli taking pole in the #88 Dempsey-Proton car with a best time of 3m51.439s.
While Vettel crossed the line ahead of Hamilton, he was relegated to second place after his time penalty was applied after only finishing 1.3 seconds clear of the Briton. The penalty sparked outrage from Vettel who called the stewards "blind" over team radio and said they were "stealing" the race away from Ferrari.
However, the team confirmed after the race that it intends to appeal the ruling, with notice being submitted to the stewards regarding the penalty on Sunday evening in Montreal. As a result, Ferrari now has 96 hours to put forward new evidence that would formalise the appeal and be referred to the FIA's International Court of Appeal - although it is noted in the sporting regulations that five-second time penalties are not admissible for appeal.

LONDON, June 7 -- The former Top Gear presenter has cultivated his petrolhead image for years, but a recent interview lifts the lid on his Earth-loving side.
Name: Farmer Clarkson.
Appearance: Ruddy-faced, weirdly dressed, fond of a massive engine.
Is this the “Farmer” part or the “Clarkson” part? It is both, my friend, for the former Top Gear presenter has become an arable agriculture worker and is making an Amazon TV series all about doing so.
Jeremy Clarkson has a farm? You’re slow on the uptake today. Yes, Jeremy Clarkson has a 400-hectare (1,000 acre) arable farm near Chipping Norton called Diddly Squat, upon which he grows wheat, barley and oilseed rape.
Watching a man grow barley doesn’t sound like particularly gripping television. Ah, but it might be. Clarkson’s show – I Bought the Farm – is apparently going to be an unvarnished look at the ecological damage wrought by humankind’s reliance on agriculture.
Really? Kind of. Clarkson told the Sunday Times: “When you till the soil or plough in weeds, it releases carbon into the atmosphere. So you think: ‘OK, I won’t plough, I’ll just spray the weeds.’ But that’s bad for the bees. Every decision you make as a farmer is bad for some reason or another.”
And this is Jeremy Clarkson? Yes.
The same Jeremy Clarkson who once angered environmentalists by emitting 1.7 tonnes of carbon during a Top Gear episode in which he drove in the Arctic? Yes.
The same Jeremy Clarkson who only recently called Extinction Rebellion “happy clappy eco vicars”? Yes. His farm is carbon neutral, too.
What? He’s pretty much flexitarian these days.
WHAT?? In fairness, this isn’t the most drastic development. Between being sacked by the BBC and signing with Amazon four years ago, Clarkson publicly mooted the idea of making a Countryfile rival for ITV “where there was death and blood and opinion”. This has clearly been on his mind for some time.
Is this all for show, just to get him back on TV? Unlikely. He has owned the farm for a decade and is committed to reintroducing native plants and animals. He has replanted hawthorn, beech, maize, sunflower and mustard, and cleared streams, and it has apparently become a haven for endangered wild birds.
And, just to be absolutely clear, we are talking about the same Jeremy Clarkson here? Yes. Horrible denim, a bit violent sometimes. Same one.
But he sounds so great now. Pardon?
Everyone thought Jeremy Clarkson was a straight-talking carbon-emitting man-of-the-people petrolhead, but he’s really a happy-clappy hedge-planting flexitarian maize-hugger. Does the Guardian now love Jeremy Clarkson? He’ll be thrilled when he hears.
Do say: “I can’t wait to watch Clarkson’s farming show.”
Don’t say: “Until he’s sacked for punching a scarecrow.”
