Could be an issue for LMDh vs LMH? LMH will recover energy through front wheels, so reducing brake load. LMDh energy recovery is through rears.

But they are considerably heavier nevertheless. So if LMP1-H were even slightly marginal on brakes, LMH may require that change. Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't brake changes still common in LMP1 about a decade ago or so?

Not to my recollection. Almost exclusively the province of the GTs.

And the brakes pads are so thick. Amazing how they got through them.

Tyre deg. didn't seem to be an issue. Difficult to be certain (different drivers, track conditions, SC/FCY), but lap times didn't drop off in a stint/tyre change - at least not enough to win over the fuel burning off.

A good sign. Monza easy on tyres, but Le Mans isn't that bad either (???)

And even more encouraging is a look at the pace over a stint.

Comparing the 7 to the 709.

Best average stint speed (ignoring the first and last lap) was 5th stint for 709. 29 lap stint averaging 1:38.2. The Toyota no.7 was it's 6th stint, 29 laps and 1:37.8.

Only 0.4s behind is pretty good

The Alpine's best was 1:38.5 - 0.3s behind the 709.

My understanding is that Le Mans is way easier on tires than most normal circuits, maybe even than Monza. That's exactly why brought this up. Monza performance should be a lot more indicative than anything we've seen so far.

Toyota seems marginally better on fuel. But who knows if that difference is a lap per stint or just 90% of a lap at Le Mans.

Aren’t integers great! You could be a tiny fraction better than someone else and get an entire lap advantage, or 90% better and not! Or you could be like Frank Biela

I remember many years ago at Road America, when Lance Armstrong's Livestrong foundation (or whatever it was called) did a yearly bike ride around the track during the ALMS weekend, and I participated one year, and before the start a few of the Audi guys showed up to bike it as well, and Frank Biela was at the front on his bike, and what do I notice stuffed in the back of his bike shorts? A pack of cigarettes, lololol

I'm sorry to see Gus dropped to the bench for Le Mans, he'd definitely get a seat if I was doing the roster, but I guess there are factors we're unaware of at play here.

Excited for Le Mans!!!

If it were me and I had a roster where one driver needed to be dropped from the lineup, one of the ones who is leaving at the end of the season would probably be top of the list.

I think it's realistic, bearing in mind Gustavo's move next season, however he has a great deal of LM experience - in a prototype - which Ryan and Richard don't.

Yes, I'd completely forgotten he's off to Poojoe next season, his omission makes perfect sense when that's factored in.
