Opinion: Why the WEC can't celebrate Rebellion's win
Rebellion broke Toyota's stranglehold on the WEC at Shanghai, but the series just swapped domination by one car for domination by another. The LMP1 success handicaps are creating variety but not decent racing, says Gary Watkins.
At last, a victory by someone other than Toyota in the FIA World Endurance Championship! But was Rebellion Racing's win in Shanghai last weekend really what the series needed? Yes and no is my answer to that one.
Yes, because an unbroken run of victories for the Japanese manufacturer stretching back more than a year has been sucking the life out of the WEC. No, because the series doesn't require a dominant win by one team simply being transposed with an equally dominant victory by another. That's what we got over four hours of racing around the Shanghai International Circuit on Sunday.

Toyota's new GR010 contender for the World Endurance Championship's Hypercar era has little in common with the LMP1 TS050 that preceded it. But within the confines of the scaled back new rules, its latest challenger will be no less formidable a prospect
The system of success handicaps devised by the FIA World Endurance Championship to level the LMP1 playing field in the category's swansong season ended up having a counterproductive effect, as COVID cancellations also played in the champions' favour.
OPINION: The news that Audi will return to Le Mans means we'll at last get to see the fight promised in 2012 against Peugeot and Toyota. It also gives LMDh a tangible form, which could open the floodgates for more like-minded marques to follow suit…
It may have been missed amid the clamour over Lewis Hamilton's seventh F1 title, but Britain had another world champion crowned last weekend. Mike Conway's WEC crown raises an old conundrum - does title glory make up for the pain of Le Mans defeat?
