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.

ANKARA, June 8 -- The Pentagon announced in a letter that it would halt F-35 fighter jet training for Turkish pilots over Ankara's purchase of the Russian S-400 air defense system, Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency reported on Saturday.
In a letter to his Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, U.S. acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said that all Turkish pilots in the program must leave the country by July 31 and the training for new pilots will be suspended. Turkish Defense Ministry also confirmed the letter in a statement on Saturday, saying that the Pentagon expected to address security concerns over the S-400 deal. Shanahan expressed his expectation to find a solution to the existing problems between the two countries in the framework of the strategic partnership and to maintain comprehensive security cooperation, the ministry said.
The U.S. repeatedly warned that it will cut off Ankara's purchase of F-35 fighter jets if the Turkish government goes ahead with plans to buy Russian S-400 air defense system, triggering a heated dispute between the two NATO allies. Washington has already suspended deliveries of parts and services related to Turkey's receipt of the multi-million-dollar jets. However, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday reaffirmed his resolve to buy S-400 system despite threatened sanctions from the United States.
WASHINGTON, June 8 -- The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said Friday it will open the International Space Station for commercial space travel from next year.
The program is aimed at opening the orbiting outpost to the private sector and shifting the U.S. space agency's resources to returning American astronauts to the Moon by 2024, a major goal of President Donald Trump's administration. However, the program carries a hefty price tag. Travelers will need to pay an estimated $58 million for a round-trip ticket, with accommodation running at about $35,000 a night, for trips of up to 30 days, according to NASA officials. NASA will offer two privately funded trips to the space station a year to begin with, with transport to be provided by Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or Space X, and Boeing Co., two U.S. companies that are developing capsules capable of carrying humans.
Russia's space agency has brought a number of private citizens to the station. In March, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence pledged to return American astronauts to the Moon by 2024 -- four years earlier than planned given increased competition in space from rivals such as Russia and China. The last people to walk on the Moon were American astronauts from the Apollo 17 mission in 1972.
