Porsche has swept all before it by taking the manufacturers’ and driver’s World Endurance Championship titles.

A nail-biting finish to the season saw Mark Webber, Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard take the WEC by five points from the arch rival #7 Audi machine.

For Webber it was just reward for a career which had previously been devoid of a championship.

It was also in stark contrast to the way the 2014 season finished for Webber who was hospitalised after a huge shunt at Interlagos.

The Porsche squad landed six of the eight WEC rounds, swept pole position in each race and claimed a 17th victory in the Le Mans 24 Hour race in June by the third #19 entry driven by Kiwi Earl Bamber, Nico Hulkenberg and Nick Tandy.

Bahrain saw the breakthrough win for Porsche’s #18 machine for Romain Dumas, Marc Lieb and Neel Jani in 2015 after the previous four races were won by the #17 car.
