Koenigsegg should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Ironically they're now 3rd in the WEC P1 Team Standings.

I know they finished last, however with all the problems they had in the run up to the race I think that is good result for them.

Lets hope they can put this behind them an move on now.

I am super happy that Ginetta got a finish. They were never in the hunt for a podium but to get an untested car that has had problems all week to the end of the race is a pretty good underdog story.

I hope they can survive and show some better pace through the rest of the season.

They were better than I expected in the race. Let's see if they'll show up for the rest of the season.

That is fantastic news for the team really. It maybe gives them an "all is not lost" moment of hope for the rest of the season. Yes it will still largely be a season of in race testing, but they can still get a decent season ending standing if they continue to show up and finish!

Could be up that high because of increased points for LM and the fact that SMP and Dragonspeed have no points or few points because of LM DNFs.

I guess it did, maybe points weren't calculated correctly before. They were 3rd based on P1 points. But I guess points are calculated based on overall prototype position (P1 + P2).

They are indeed 5th in the LMP1 teams' championship with a single point to their name. All classified finishers at Le Mans received one point.

Toyota Gazoo Racing 65
Rebellion Racing 38
ByKolles Racing 12
SMP Racing 10
CEFC TRSM Racing 1
Dragonspeed 0

In the LMP drivers' championship, which combines LMP1 and LMP2 points for some reason, Robertson, Roussel and Simpson are in joint 15th place with a point each.

Unfortunately, that's not even remotely surprising, is it?

The new question becomes, will they make a race this year?

They already did. The actual question is whether or not they'll make a SECOND race this year.

They were denied entry for Silverstone because they changed the engine too late. And the ACO/FIA wouldn't let them in. Sounds to me like the team is making the effort, but inflexibility of the rules makers has kept them away.

More like their engine manufacturer is unwilling to make changes. Maybe because they don't want to work for free?

Anyway it sucks, I don't think we'll see this car again until Le Mans.
