They used to be literally the best of friends, but competitive nature can destroy former driver friendships, just as it ultimately did with Webber & Vettel and so on as well. If winning WEC championship was nearly as prestigious as winning F1 championshp, and we had say #8 against #14 going neck and neck against each other on track every weekend using any means necessary, I don't think things would be as merry in WEC either. And even so, remember Audi vs Pug: dirty tactics at LM, frustration driven clashes at PLM, blocking opposition on purpose at Zhuhai and so on - that rivalry was certainly not pretty all the time. When heat goes up, things change.

Anyway of course as you share the cars with others in (endurance) sports cars and when the manufacturer/team benefit plays bigger role in importance, the "atmosphere" between drivers and teams may appear as more friendly generally, but I don't think you can describe the entire genre "only top-line motorsport which has kept that atmosphere" just as simply as that. I'm sure you have equally as respectful folks in say World Superbikes or World Touring Cars than you have in WEC or European Le Mans.

The wec is a team sport. Theres no individuality because you always share your car anyway. If it was only Buemi in the #8 beating Nakajima in the #7 then you might get that unfriendly rivalry. But thats not how endurance racing is, and thats what were discussing right?

I love these charts. Great job, thanks. It looks like Dalziel was litterally dragging that car along by himself. But I found it surprising how far off the pace the semi-works Morgan was, sure they haven't run in WEC but it's not like they've been sitting idle all year prior to this race.

Just because you share your car with other(s) doesn't automatically mean there cannot be unfriendly rivalry with another entry. As, again, past has proved from time to time. Anyway that wasn't the point really

The graph also shows how much K.Ladygin was tanking in his last stint to let the other car through for points. Must have been tough to have a deserved 2nd place become 4th because of a points situation that shouldn't even exist.

What strikes me from that lap chart is how tightly bunched the times are for all of the Ligier crew. The only other team with such closely matched drivers was the 37 and that was significantly slower.
No wonder G-Drive won by 3 laps.
