HR 8 Hours from Bahrain, which will define today the champion of the 2019/2020 season of the Wec, are already underway and after the first 60 minutes they are led by Toyota TS050 HIBRYD No. 7 in which the Argentine alternates Jose Maria Lopez, English Mike conway and the Japanese Kamui Kobayashi.

Conway, who was in charge of driving on the first shift, had no trouble staying ahead of the pack at the start. With a solid job he was distancing himself from the Toyota TS050 HIBRYD N ° 8 driven in this first part by the Swiss Sebastien Buemi, who shares it with the New Zealander Brendon Hartley and the Japanese Kazuki Nakajima.

Jose Maria LopezThe prototype of the trio that includes Pechito López got him 16 seconds to his escort when on lap 24 he entered the pits to make the first stop to change tires and refuel.

Buemi entered the same turn, who later complained over the radio about the strategy. "It is not what we had planned", the Swiss shot confused, putting heat to the definition in which he and his teammates are favorites to reach the front of the championship.

With 35 laps contested and a long way to go, the No. 7 Toyota beats the No. 8 Toyota by more than 27 seconds
