Toyota has revealed their car for the new season of the World Endurance Championship. The Japanese manufacturer says that they have updated every part of the TS050, and will be looking to claim victory at Le Mans this season after a crushing last minute car problem denied them the top step last year.
Toyota enters two cars, with Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José María López in the #7 car, while Sébastien Buemi, Anthony Davidson and Kazuki Nakajima compete in the #8.
Pascal Vasselon, Technical Director: "Our 2017 TS050 HYBRID represents a significant update; the only item which is not changed is the monocoque. At several races last year we showed the potential of our car with strong performances. But to achieve our targets we need more, so as well as big aerodynamic changes, we have optimised each area for performance and weight.
"What happened at Le Mans last year was painful so we gave extra attention to quality management. Pre-season testing has gone well in terms of performance and reliability so we feel positive but we also know we face a tough competitor."
