As we near the start of the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans at 3pm on Saturday, the focus of the pre-race coverage has, unsurprisingly, centred on one driver: Fernando Alonso.

The two-time Formula 1 world champion will be aiming to take the next step towards completing the ‘triple crown of motorsport’ by winning on debut at Le Mans, having already made a victorious start to life with Toyota in the World Endurance Championship last month at Spa.

Yet as always at Le Mans, there are numerous other stories to be told through this year’s race weekend. Alonso may be in the spotlight this year, but there is so much more to look out for across one of the greatest spectacles in all of global motorsport.
