Le Mans 24 Hours: 4H - Porsche, Webber holds station to chasing Toyotas

The #1 Porsche continue to lead the 84th 24 Hours of Le Mans after the fourth hour, although the #6 Toyota maintains its chase
The #1 Porsche continue to lead the 84th 24 Hours of Le Mans after the fourth hour, although the #6 Toyota continues to keep chase.

The reigning world champions – with Mark Webber currently at the wheel – have managed a small lead over Kamui Kobayashi in the Toyota; however the manufacturer pair continue to swap the lead during pitstops.

Webber has extended the gap from 11s to 18s in the 30 mins since the Australian took the lead; however Toyota managed yet another fourteen lap stint to Porsche's thirteen, as the Japanese squad play the long game at La Sarthe.

Oliver Jarvis sits in 3rd place for the #8Audi, while #2 Porsche ((Marc Lieb) and the #5 Toyota (Anthony Davidson) remain in 4th and 5th positions respectively, although Davidson lost 45s when he had to bring the Toyota in for an additional stop for new tyres only one tour after his scheduled stop.

In LMP2, Matt Rao leads in the #44 Manor, having swapped the lead in the pits with the #47 KCMG, now piloted by Matt Howson

Risi Competizione have made good with the LMGTE-Pro class, with Toni Vilander managing the gap to the chasing Ford Chip Ganassi machines, led by the #69 (Ryan Briscoe) and the #68 (Joey Hand).

KCMG have enjoyed an untroubled hour leading the LMGTE-Am class with Joel Camathias (#78) over one minute ahead of David Heinmeir-Hansson in the #88 Abu Dhabi Proton Porsche.
