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 into the penultimate hour of the prestigious Le Mans race, but a double 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. #lemans#fernandoalonso#alonso#race#winner #win#sport#news#22bet
