Toyota has shown that it may be the team to beat this year at Le Mans, as the Japanese manufacturer led the way in Sunday’s official test day for the 24-hour endurance classic.

Pitted against fellow LMP1 factory efforts from Audi and newcomers Porsche, it was the No. 8 Toyota TS040 Hybrid of Sebastien Buemi that was quickest. The Swiss driver reeled off a best lap of 3:23.014, set early in the four-hour afternoon session.
