I have told this last year before Audi left. LMP1 was in a weak situation since no new factory joined since Porsche entrance. If Toyota should have won Le Mans last year (or this year), I'm 100% sure they would leave the series, now is Porsche. Without a third factory, the consecuences of one of the two current factories leave the series means the end of the P1-H as a class.

So, the hurry to have more P1-L entrances is the key. If all the possible private entrances for next year become a reality the series would be ok from the car's count point of view, but the financial side will be hurt.

All this is consecuence of the ACO only allowing factories to race with the complex and expensive hydrid systems.
