I just think the article is click-bait. There's literally no change to the LMP2 regulations except aero has been added to the list of things they're allowed to change. To have the headline "LMP2 Subject to BoP Adjustments" suggests it's something new to the class and something that's actively happening.

Yes you can make the argument that 1 adjustment is BoP, but that's a matter of opinion and I disagree that that isn't exactly what BoP is. However the rest of it is just click bait...again.

I generally have no problem with BoP. But I'd like things reported accurately and honestly. Remember that these provisions existed in the previous generation LMP2 regulations as well and were never used despite large performance gaps. That's how much of a non-event this is.
Sorry, we will just have to disagree on that! They balanced the cars performance against one another, period. = BoP.
