Toyota looks certain to have taken pole position for Sunday's opening round of the World Endurance Championship at Silverstone.
A timing system glitch means that no official times were issued after qualifying, but Toyota is confident that its No. 7 TS030 HYBRID shared by Nicolas Lapierre and Alex Wurz claimed the pole in a 20-minute prototype session held in changeable conditions.
The timing problems followed the switch to a new aggregate system of qualifying under which the grid is determined by the average best two lap times of two drivers in each car.
Lapierre, who went out first in the best of the Toyotas, said: "We are on pole by miles for sure, because we got the conditions right. We went from intermediates to slicks, whereas our other car went inters-inters and the Audis, we think, wets to slicks."
The likely pole winner in LMP2 is the G-Drive/Delta-ADR ORECA-Nissan 03 driven by Antonio Pizzonia and James Walker.
Top qualifying in GTE Pro appears to be the Aston Martin Vantage V8 shared by Pedro Lamy and Frederic Makowiecki.
