FIA WEC points standings after Le Mans

All cars went through the post-race scrutineering without any issues, which was a very good thing compared to previous years, where irregularities were found.

The Le Mans-winning Hypercar from Toyota Gazoo Racing #7 is the new leader of the championship, ahead of its sister car #8, while Alpine Elf Matmut #36 are third. But there is absolutely nothing decided yet, with just 30 points between the leading #7, and #36, with 65 points still on offer.

JOTA #28 has jumped into the LMP2 lead, just a single point ahead of the winning Team WRT #31, while JOTA #38 is in third. United Autosports USA #22 has fallen all the way back to 4th, after their troubled Le Mans, which was very disappointing for the defending winner of the race. There are just 22 points between #28 and #22 i.e. less than a win difference.

DragonSpeed USA #21 has gone into the LMP2 Pro/Am points lead, following their win, with Racing Team Nederland #29 in second, sending Realteam Racing #70 from first to third, despite them being on the podium.

AF Corse Ferrari #51 are new GTE Pro leaders, while Porsche #92 is bumped down to second place. The championship will most likely be decided between those two cars, since Porsche #91 and Ferrari #52 are a long way behind. In fact, Michael Christensen has more points than the #52, despite him only racing twice in four races for Porsche #92.

AF Corse Ferrari #83 has opened up a huge gap of 36,5 points over TF Sport Aston Martin #33. But as previously mentioned, there are still 65 points left in the season. There is a huge cluster of cars immediately behind the TF Sport #33. Cetilar Racing Ferrari #47 has only scored a single point during the last two races, and has plummeted from being title candidates, to only fight for the other medals in the standings. AF Corse Ferrari #54 are right behind, while Iron Lynx Ferrari #60, Aston Martin Racing #98, D’Station Racing Aston Martin #777 and Team Project 1 Porsche #56 all are within a few points of each other.
