The #7 Toyota crew beat to the checkered flag its #8 GR010 sister car steered by Sebastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Brendon Hartley after a straightforward and smooth race at Sakhir.

The 1-2 finish also delivered the teams' world title to Toyota Gazoo racing, the first in the WEC's Hypercar era.
