Toyota had the faster car and Porsche won the race, but that's where the similarities between the Le Mans 24 Hours this year and last end.
This was a race that was as bizarre as it was dramatic. Witness the hour or so lost to repairs by the the winning LMP1 prototype shared by Timo Bernhard, Earl Bamber and Brendon Hartley.
Or the 13-lap lead that the sister Porsche 919 Hybrid driven by Neel Jani, Nick Tandy and Andre Lotterer enjoyed with four hours to go. Or the mad 30 minutes in the small hours of Sunday morning when Toyota's hopes of victory evaporated for another year. Or the fact that an event as glorious and grand as Le Mans came close to having an overall winner from the secondary LMP2 prototype class.
