They could generate similar lap times, but come race day and the DPs were miles ahead because they had more torque to deal with the traffic.

Not a complaint, as I love the hybrid torque, but don't be surprised if the gap opens up when they hit traffic. The hybrids have an absolutely brutal ability when dealing with.
Could happen, but they are limited to 8mj per lap. The best way to make lap time is accelerating on the long straights like dragsters. If they have to use the hybrid to pass traffic it'll compromise them on other parts of the lap. This track is nearly twice as long as Spa but they only have 2mj more here. If you take Spa's length to hybrid power available and applied it to Le Mans, they'd have something around 12mj of hybrid. That's where I think the non-hybrids can actually do something. They're limited on fuel usage too, but not nearly as much as Toyota is. I envision it that way at least, but who knows. At least we won't until tomorrow!
