Brendon Hartley, Earl Bamber and Timo Bernhard led home a dominant World Endurance Championship one-two for Porsche in Mexico to extend their points lead.

Porsche was never threatened by rival Toyota over the course of the six-hour race, the two 919 Hybrids finishing a lap clear of the Japanese cars.

The margin in favour of the championship leaders over team-mates Nick Tandy, Andre Lotterer and Neel Jani was just seven seconds at the chequered flag.

The lead for the Hartley car had been as much as nearly half a minute after Lotterer had to take drive-through because a problem with the pitlane limiter led to a speeding offence, but Jani cut a 20s deficit to Bernard in half over the course of the final stint as the German driver backed off.

The drive-through and a change of fuel flow meter for the winning cars were the only hiccups encountered on Porsche on the way to a third consecutive victory.

Hartley said: "It was an awesome race by the Porsche team. I said after qualifying that we had a great car from the first laps and only needed to make small tweaks.

"The team made the lives of us drivers easy and we had a fairly smooth race."

The Toyota TS050 HYBRID was not a competitive proposition at Mexico City, the car lacking downforce at the high altitude track.
