Warm-up

A 15-minute warm-up session was held on the morning of 19 September.[32] Rain fell early in the morning,[54] meaning a majority of teams were reluctant to send their cars onto the circuit.[55] Buemi's No. 8 Toyota recorded the fastest lap at 3 minutes, 36.693 seconds with his teammate Conway in the No. 7 car second.[55] Both the Rebellion and the one ByKolles non-hybrid cars set no lap times during the session. Van Der Garde led LMP2 in the Racing Team Nederland car at 3 minutes, 43.022 seconds. Matthieu Vaxivière was six seconds slower in the second-placed Panis Racing car.[54] Calado's No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari was fastest in LMGTE Pro with Giancarlo Fisichella's No. 54 AF Corse car quickest in LMGTE Am and third amongst all LMGTE entries.[55] No major incidents occurred during the session.[54]

Race

Start and opening hours

The track at the start was wet with the air temperature from 16.5 to 24.7 °C (61.7 to 76.5 °F) and the track temperature between 19 and 40 °C (66 and 104 °F).[56] The French tricolour was waved at 14:30 Central European Summer Time (UTC+02:00) by Carlos Tavares, the chair of Groupe PSA's managing board, to start the race,[57] led by the starting pole sitter Conway.[53] Because the event was held in September, track temperatures would be cooler and there would be more darkness hours,[6] influencing changes in vehicle behaviour and requiring drivers and teams to adapt to the new conditions.[5] At the start, Senna overtook Buemi and briefly passed Conway through turn one but the latter retained the lead through later braking into Dunlop turn. Senna refocused on holding second place from Buemi as Bruni fell to fourth in LMGTE Pro when Calado, and Aston Martin's Lynn and Thiim overtook him. Buemi passed Senna on lap nine due to a shorter first pit stop as a result of Toyota overfilling their cars with fuel. He relinquished second to Senna when he was required to make an extra pit stop to replace a left-rear puncture five laps later, putting Conway 40 seconds ahead of Buemi and promoting Berthon to third.[58][59][60]

On 20 minutes,[61] Oswaldo Negri Jr. lost control of the No. 61 Luzich car under braking in the entry to Dunlop corner, causing Thomas Preining driving the No. 88 Dempsey-Proton Porsche to swerve to avoid the spinning Ferrari, drive onto the grass and hit the outside tyre barrier backwards into the turn.[58][59][60] The damage to the Dempsey-Proton Porsche necessitated its removal from the side of the track to behind the barrier before Preining was able to drive it to the pit lane.[62] At the conclusion of the opening hour, both Toyotas were faster than the Rebellion cars per lap although Senna had set the overall fastest lap on lap four.[61] The LMGTE Pro lead became a multi-car battle between representatives of Aston Martin and Ferrari, with the lead changing several times over the following hours.[61][63] Berthon brought the No. 3 Rebellion car into the pit lane for a engine bodywork switch,[64] as the divergence between both Toyotas created by the No. 8 car's earlier puncture allowed both to race each other for the overall lead in the second hour when Conway was overtaken by teammate Buemi into the opening section of the Porsche Curves but the former retook it when the latter made a scheduled pit stop.[65]

James Allen's No. 39 Graff car took the lead in LMP2 during the second hour, which the team held until Allen's co-driver Vincent Capillaire lost control of the vehicle in the Porsche Curves and went into the gravel trap 3 hours and 30 minutes in,[65][66] falling to eighth in class and forcing Capillaire to make an additional pit stop.[61][66] Stevens moved through the LMP2 field to take the lead in the No. 37 Jackie Chan car following Capillaire's pit stop. Pit stops for Ho-Pin Tung's No. 37 Jackie Chan entry and Roman Rusinov's No. 26 G-Drive car elevated the No. 32 United Autosports car of Job van Uitert to the lead in LMP2.[66] The lead of LMGTE Am became a battle between representatives of the Team Project 1, TF Sport, AF Corse and Aston Martin Racing with first place being exchanged multiple times with Emmanuel Collard's No. 83 Ferrari moving to the top of the category at the conclusion of the fourth hour by making a pit stop during a slow zone procedure.[63][66] The No. 56 Project 1 Porsche fell to seventh in LMGTE Am early in the fifth hour when the team incurred a one-minute stop-and-go penalty for speeding in a slow zone.[67]

Sunset to night

As dusk fell,[61] Alexander West lost control of the No. 52 AF Corse Ferrari driving through the Porsche Curves and crashed into the outside barrier with the left-hand side of the vehicle and was facing the opposite direction.[68][69] The accident led to the first safety car intervention of the event so that the barriers at the Porsche Curves could be repaired.[61][70] During the safety car period, Toyota brought Kobayashi's No. 7 entry into the pit lane for fuel, promoting Nakajima's No. 8 car to the lead.[69][68] As the safety cars were recalled, the first two in LMP1 and LMP2, the top three in LMGTE Pro and the top two in LMGTE Am were closed up by a few seconds and separated from the rest of their respective fields.[61] Gabriel Aubry's No. 37 Jackie Chan Oreca led in LMP2 but around half past eight the squad relinquished the lead it had held for 27 consecutive laps to Vergne's No. 26 G-Drive team when he stopped in the Porsche Curves because of a failed alternator.[63][71][72] The car was disqualified when Aubry was determined to have received outside assistance for repairs by a team member supplying a car component to him on the circuit to enable its return to the pit lane.[73]

Not long after, the rear wing on Spengler's ByKolles car failed in the centre of a corner, sending him into the gravel trap at the Dunlop Curves and striking the tyre wall. Spengler was unhurt and was able to drive the car to the pit lane and into retirement for the sixth year in succession.[61][71][72] Almost at the same time, Gommendy's No. 30 Duqueine vehicle and Albquerque's No. 22 United Autosports car collided into the first Mulsanne Straight chicane, causing the former to lose control of his car and hit the guardrail barrier hard enough to damage it. Gommendy was unhurt and entered the medical car unassisted. Safety cars were required once again as the barriers needed lengthy repairs, while a slow zone was used after 30 minutes.[71][74] During the second safety car intervention, the No. 8 Toyota was brought into the garage to replace the right-front brakes and allow the team to repair a brake duct cooling problem caused by rubber build-up.[71][74] Repairs took over 10 minutes to finish,[74] and the No. 8 Toyota briefly lost second to Nato's No. 1 Rebellion car and dropped one lap behind López's No. 7 vehicle.[71][72]

The track was declared wet in the eighth hour after drivers reported light, localised rainfall in the Porsche Curves.[75] Andrea Piccini relinquished the No. 75 Iron Lynx car's hold of the lead of LMGTE Am to Nicklas Nielsen's No. 83 AF Corse car when it had a power steering problem that required the opening of its front storage compartment in the garage.[61][76] Vergne was required to serve a drive-through penalty the No. 26 G-Drive team incurred for him passing behind the safety car,[77] promoting Brundle's No. 32 United Autosports entry to the lead of LMP2.[75] After 7​12 hours a third safety car period was needed for six minutes to allow for the moving of safety vehicles used to repair the guardrail barrier following Gommendy's crash at the first Mulsanne Straight chicane.[71][75] When racing resumed, the main focus was on the battle for the lead in both of the GTE classes between Aston Martin and Ferrari.[61][71] Rusinov's No. 26 G-Drive Oreca bowed out of the lead battle in LMP2 when he entered the pit lane with starter motor problems in the 10th hour after having to restart the car several times on the circuit.[78]

Bird ceded the No. 71 AF Corse Ferrari's hold on third place in LMGTE Pro to Westbrook's No. 95 Aston Martin in the 11th hour when he picked up a right-rear puncture on the Mulsanne Straight and drove slowly to the pit lane where it moved into the garage for an inspection and brake repairs. At mid-point, Kobayashi's No. 7 Toyota led Hartley's sister No. 8 car by a lap with the two Rebellion entries of Menezes and Dumas third and fourth. United Autosports held first and second LMP2 with the No. 32 of Will Owen ahead of his teammate Di Resta and the No. 38 Jota car of Roberto González third.[79] Soon after Kobayashi began slowing due to a loss of power caused by a fracture in the right-hand side exhaust manifold traced to a build quality problem, and relinquished the lead of the race to teammate Hartley when he entered the garage to allow mechanics to install a new right-hand side turbocharger and exhaust assembly.[80][81][82] Repairs lasted 29 minutes and 47 seconds and the No. 7 Toyota returned in fourth position, seven laps behind Hartley and Rebellion's Menezes and Dumas were promoted to second and third.[82]

Early morning to afternoon

Félix da Costa's seat belts were accidentally undone while adjusting them for tightness through Tertre Rouge in a slow zone, requiring him to make an extra pit stop in Jota's No. 38 car and dropping him further behind United Autosports.[83] In the early morning Brundle drove the No. 32 United Autosports car into the garage for ​34 of an hour with a broken solid engine oil line causing an oil leak, handing the lead of LMP2 to Di Resta's sister No. 22 vehicle. Not long after Aston Martin's No. 98 of Paul Dalla Lana was forced to leave the battle for the LMGTE Am victory when the car's rear suspension failed into Indianapolis turn and requiring attention in the garage dropping the entry down the class order.[84][85] By the 17th hour, Julien Canal's Panis car was third in LMP2 with Jensen's No. 26 G-Drive entry close behind in fourth as Aston Martin and Ferrari continued to contest the victory in LMGTE Pro as an alternative tyre strategy to refuelling saw exchanges of the class lead between the No. 51 AF Corse and No. 95 Aston Martin teams.[86][87] Senna had an anxious moment in the 19th hour when he reported a vibration on the No. 1 Rebellion due to its front nose becoming dislodged, requiring a five-minute stay in the garage for new front bodywork elongated by a twisted mounting point. Menezes took over from Senna and fell to third behind teammate Dumas.[88][89][90]

The Rebellion team asked their drivers to pressure Hartley in the No. 8 Toyota to the conclusion of the race.[91] Rebellion frequently imposed team orders on Menezes to stop him battling his teammate Dumas and prevent the No. 1 car overheating and sustaining engine damage since a duel would potentially prevent them from achieving a podium finish.[61] Menezes noted it would be difficult to remain within two seconds of Dumas while Kobayashi's No. 7 Toyota was close by. Kobayashi unlapped himself from the Rebellion cars and took pressure off Menezes.[92] Rebellion's strategy to put their cars on different pit stop cycles proved to be ineffective as Menezes continued to duel Dumas.[61] With 2 hours, 20 minutes remaining, Deletraz relieved Dumas in the No. 3 car but had trouble starting due to a worn clutch, losing 20 seconds and losing third to the sister No. 1 entry. Deletraz missed the braking point for Indianapolis turn and damaged the No. 3 Rebellion against the tyre barrier. A pit stop to replace the front and rear bodywork saw Deletraz again fail to start and the No. 3 team lost third to the No. 7 Toyota.[93][94]

With less than 45 minutes remaining, Vergne's No. 26 G-Drive car had a high-speed front-right suspension failure into Indianapolis corner. Vergne stopped before the wall and returned to the garage, losing third in LMP2 to the Panis team. The fourth and final safety car intervention of the race was necessitated when Allen driving the No. 39 Graff car struck the tyre barrier near to the Porsche Curves in the concluding hour and the wall needed repairing. Racing resumed following the completion of repairs to the barrier with 23 minutes remaining.[61][95] Hanson driving the No. 22 United Autosports car made a swift pit stop for fuel in the final ten minutes. He returned to the circuit six seconds ahead of Jota's No. 38 car, which made a final pit stop four minutes after Hanson since driver Davidson could not save enough fuel under safety car conditions.[61][96]

Finish

Nakajima crossed the finish line first after 387 laps to win for the No. 8 Toyota team, five laps ahead of the second-placed No. 1 Rebellion car.[97] The No. 7 Toyota completed the podium in third position and the No. 3 Rebellion was the final car to finish in LMP1 in fourth.[98] It was Buemi and Nakajima's third Le Mans victory and Hartley's second as well as Toyota's third in succession.[99] Toyota also won the LMP1 Teams' Championship since Rebellion were unable to overtake its points total with one race left.[100] The No. 22 United Autosports car led the final 136 laps to win in LMP2 at Le Mans for the first time and drivers Albuquerque, Di Resta and Hanson secured their first Le Mans victories.[63][101] United Autosports as well as Albquerque and Hanson secured the LMP2 teams' and driver's endurance trophies with one round to go.[96] Jota Sport followed 32.831 seconds later in second and Panis Racing completed the class podium in third.[102] Aston Martin took its first LMGTE Pro victory since 2017 with the No. 97 car finishing 1 minute and 33 seconds ahead of the No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari to win the GTE Manufacturers' Championship. The marque also won in LMGTE Am with the No. 98 TF Sport entry earning the team's first category win, with the No. 77 Dempsey-Proton Porsche 49 seconds behind in second.[101][103]

The top three teams in each of the four classes appeared on the podium to collect their trophies and spoke to the media in separate press conferences.[32] Buemi commented: "It’s amazing. We get to keep the big trophy now, when you win three times. That was the main target."[104] Nakajima said he was satisfied that at least one member of his team had won the race while Hartley added that winning with two different manufacturers surprised him.[104] Senna stated that Rebellion's second-place finish was an "amazing achievement" and that he would accept the result. Menezes called his second overall podium finish "special" and that sharing the result was "something special".[89] Conway admitted he was upset to lose the opportunity at victory, saying: "This place hasn’t been the kindest to us at times. Three wins on the trot for the team, we’ve got to be happy about that for the team, but on our side of the garage we just feel like another one got away from us."[105] Pascal Vasselon, Toyota's technical director, said he felt sorry for the No. 7 crew and acknowledged they were the faster than the No. 8 team.[105]

Albquerque received a telephone call from the President of Portugal congratulating him on becoming the first Portuguese driver to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans.[106] He added, ”It’s my seventh time and I’ve been here quite a while. I was just waiting for when it’s going to be my day. I’ve been searching for this podium and it’s a dream. LMP2 is a great category with many good drivers. With 24 cars it was extremely competitive. We never knew who would be the winner."[107] Hanson said he thought he lost the chance to win, "It was a very hectic last 10 minutes of the race and it made it for me. It’s not as exciting if you’re coasting home, just looking after the car, to if you’re pushing like mad to bring it home in P1. It was a really exciting way to end it.”[107] Félix da Costa admitted fault for unbuckling his seatbelts and said he felt his team should have won because he believed they had the most consistent package. Davidson said Jota stopped using a fuel-saving plan when it became apparent United Autosports would not finish the race without making another pit stop but felt an extra lap behind the safety car could have possibly created a different scenario.[83]

Lynn called his victory in LMGTE Pro "the biggest win of his career" and added that the problems with the Aston Martin Vantage's speed in preceding years made it more special, "I'm very proud of what the team has been able to achieve and the vast improvement the car has made in sheer lap time and also in balance and reliability in every sense."[108] Tincknell won on his debut for Aston Martin and said that he learnt greatly over the course of the opening two stints when both Ferraris overtook him and he used this to get ahead of Daniel Serra later on, "It was a game of cat and mouse. We were on new tires and they were on old tires, and vice versa. We were never really sure how it was going to pan out, but we were confident that we had the car, the team and the people to do it.”[109] Calado said Ferrari was a little slower than Aston Martin through first to third gears and conceded it was the faster car, adding, "We couldn't have done any more really. We did what we could, and we basically just lacked pace, they were quicker than us. Second is not a great feeling, but we've just got to think ahead and try to improve the car for next year."[110]

Vassleon said a lack of track grip caused by rainfall removing rubber and bringing oily substances to the surface the night before slowed the race and admitted to being worried about Senna's performance during practice and the first stint before expressing surprise when Rebellion slowed. Calim Bouhadra, the CEO of Rebellion, stated slower traffic was the primary differentiator between the hybrid Toyota and Rebellion's non-hybrid cars early on and their only worry was managing the brakes at the event's conclusion.[111] Martin commented that the main reason Aston Martin won both the GTE categories was by not switching the brake discs. LMGTE Am winner Jonathan Adam said it was the first time he had completed a 24-hour race without needing to change brakes.[112]

The result moved Buemi, Hartley and Nakajima to the lead of the LMP Drivers' Championship with 175 points. Their teammates Conway, Kobayashi and López fell to second as Menezes, Nato and Senna maintained third place. Albquerque and Hanson were fourth with their co-driver Di Resta fifth. Lynn and Martin drew to within 15 points of their teammates and GTE Drivers' Championship leaders Sørensen and Thiim. Toyota and Aston Martin left Le Mans as the respective LMP1 Teams' and GTE Manufacturers' champions with one race left in the season.[4]
