The current situation just highlight the point that the ACO just doesn’t offer a compelling business case for anything between gentlemen-diver funded P2 and very high tech and very expensive factory LMP-1. Essentially LMP-1P, LMP-1L or whatever the name of the moment is suffers from having too high a price point for too little performance and too small a chance of overall success.

The problem with DPi from the ACO’s perspective is that it wants to limit manufacturer involvement to LMP1 and GTE only and keep them out of LMP2 while DPi is designed to attract manufacturer money. Maybe at some point the ACO will change course, but as you say, that’s probably doubtful anytime soon.
