TOYOTA GAZOO Rac­ing resumes its 2018–2019 FIA World Endurance Cham­pi­onship (WEC) sea­son fol­low­ing the win­ter break with its first-ever vis­it to Flori­da, for the 1000 Miles of Sebring.

Anoth­er one-two vic­to­ry in Shang­hai in Novem­ber ensured TOYOTA led both the dri­vers’ and teams’ World Cham­pi­onships going into the four-month win­ter break and the team returns to action at Sebring deter­mined to extend that advan­tage with a fifth win of the sea­son.

In the #7 TS050 HYBRID, unlike team-mate Kamui Kobayashi who is a Sebring rook­ie, Mike Con­way and José María López have both raced pre­vi­ous­ly at the track, with Mike earn­ing an over­all podi­um for third place fin­ish­es in the leg­endary 12-hour race in 2017 and 2018.

Sébastien Bue­mi is the only one of the World Cham­pi­onship-lead­ing #8 TS050 HYBRID line-up to have pre­vi­ous­ly raced at Sebring but, along­side team-mates Kazu­ki Naka­ji­ma and Fer­nan­do Alon­so, he will aim for an improve­ment on 2017, when his Rebel­lion Rac­ing car did not fin­ish after start­ing from pole posi­tion.
