Open tops IMO belong in F1 and open wheel racing, not even lmp2. Just my thought. I hope it's a coupe.

Despite big rule changes for 2014, it's going to be pretty easy decision if the closed vs. open situation (i.e. pitstop rules) stays the same. Might not require a decision at all with the intent to make P1 coupe only (mandatory).

Even if rules don't make it mandatory, there is always the aerodynamics aspect to consider.

Before everything else, this is just my opinion...

With the new set of rules being introduce in 2014, LMP P1 carīs with 750kg minimum weight and the holes, an open car will look like a F1.. and i donīt appreciate that a lot...

F1 is F1, endurance carīs are endurance carīs, let them look different please.

You've been away for awhile huh? .
The holes in the fenders don't change the overall appearance of the car drastically. So don't fear, we will not see F1 cars at Le Mans - Only a huge d***!

I have a son coming this Spring and I have to prepare my life

The holes in the fenders this year is not a concern to me ( well they are ugly, but...safety issues) the possible new set of 2014 rules are because iīm afraid that we will have F1 carīs with the wheels covered.

Congratulations! .

I don't think you should be afraid. The closest a LMP will ever come to a F1 car with fenders is the WR LMP2

Wonderful news!

I have grown immensely with my children. It's amazing how much you can learn from them.

Congratulations.

In a recent video, Porsche suggest 918 RSR could still race at least once before the end of next year.
