Fernando Alonso wins Le Mans again and World Endurance title | F1 News

Fernando Alonso has become a world champion again – this time in sports cars – after a second successive victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours clinched the World Endurance Championship title.

Alonso and Toyota team-mates Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi were on course to clinch the overall WEC crown with second place in the closing hours of Sunday’s prestigious Le Mans race, but a puncture for the long-time leading sister car, shared between Kamui Kobayashi, Mike Conway and Jose Maria Lopez, swung the race in their favour.

Alonso’s last motorsport championship came 13 years ago in Formula 1 when he won his second and final title.
