Drink LMP1 Privateer entries by 2017-18, your prediction?

Based on your research/estimation/guess, which LMP1 privateer teams do you actually think will be on the grid in next two seasons time (both 2017/2018 or just either of them). No hopes, but your realistic prediction. The list comprises of all teams that have publicly shown at least some interest since the new regulations came in the force, and quite few of them have already in 99,9% certainty collapsed for good ages ago, but here they are in the list regardless. What do you think?

Rebellion and ByKolles will probably still be there, I have a hunch Strakka might just make it. Don't expect any others.

Onroak has basically been going on and off about this thing for years, but now acknowledging their insisting of having a "manufacturer" partner + branding before packing their suitcases, and at the same time seeing Nissan-Cosworth shopping in for teams, I think the two will align sooner or later.

SMP will have billion spare LMP2 chassis laying around doing nothing, and ultimately they will realize it's time to switch boats. When the money drains are still functioning...

Plus the Swiss and the funky businessman's team. I don't believe in others sadly, not really even Manor, though would love to be proven wrong

at 50% I think there will be some new private lmp1 cars, just because teams like SMP, strakka and oak will try to recycle their grandfathered lmp2 coupè, converting them in lmp1; but at 50% I fear that none really will care and simply will switch to new cheaper lmp2 chassis after 2017.

How easy is that though?

Oak is in the buddy circle of new spec LMP2 though, so they don't really need to recycle anything, besides I think they have the LMP1 design ready anyway if they got that partner.

lmp2 HPD ligier chassis + wider rear wing + new suspensions + AER = new oak lmp1

of course, I am not an engineer, but I guess is simpler and cheaper to customize an already developed platform than project and build a new one from 0.

I think just one additional team to what we have now. My guess is Strakka, Rebellion and Kolles. Hope more join but that's all I see for now.
