SCG posted this Toyota graphic showing the size of its prototype vs a Tundra. I feel like that in my car which is twice the size of the proto!

Buemi confirmed that he has driven Toyota’s Le Mans Hypercar in its simulator. While describing it as slower and heavier than the manufacturer’s LMP1 car, Buemi felt the car had more of an “old school” feel: “It’s very much rear-wheel-drive until more than 120 km/h so you feel that the rear of the car is moving a lot more,” he said.

Wtf is this, I thought the stupid penalties wouldn't be applied for LM as promised by ACO last year? Or is this just being uninformed

http://www.dailysportscar.com/2020/08/15/mike-conway-on-spa-and-performance-restrictions-on-hopes-for-le-mans-and-beyond.html

What are the team telling you about what they expect to be doled out for Le Mans in terms of a perfomnance level?

“I haven’t heard anything. I hope that we’ll just come back to zero because it was close last year if you look at all the averages, Rebellion were second best.

“What would be terrible is if they gave different penalties between the two Toyotas, that would be a farce really, it would just be terrible.

“One horsepower around that place is a lot of time, so I hope they take it back to zero (in terms of performance adjustment) and we have what we have.”

as far I knew at le mans there will be eot but success handicap should be removed for everyone. Toyota will likely be >930kg heavy but no more fuel flow or MJ penalities. Btw guess toyota mainly aims to get the same stint lenght of last year that let them have 1 more lap per stint compared to smp/rebellion, that's the real game changer.
About today race... well, ok both toyotas had >3s of handicap, but if during qualifying ran 6s slower than last year, was clearly they were hiding a lot

Mild EoT is acceptable, the success thing isn't... nor is the mandated stint advantage, that's about as bad as the handicaps and in many ways even worse, because it results in direct in-race penalties if not 100% obeyed - even if done accidentally, it sure is horrible criminal act if nonhybrid manages accidentally to do the same lap count as hybrid car. Speaking of which, I had thought this rule too would be deleted for 2020... are we sure it isn't. But then again I also thought this for the 2019 race after it had been scrapped for Fuji 2018 and the rest of the non-LM races of 2018-2019, only to be silently brought back for no reason

Ilta-Sanomat's F1 journalist Janne Aittoniemi speculated could Kimi Räikkonen get an offer from Toyota's LMP1 team?

He did the 908 test back in the day and didn't really seem to care one way or another. And that article well, the information on that appears to be about as well thought as if me wondering if Lewis Hamilton would perhaps be willing to compete in Race of Champions in 2035.

Pretty sure the mandatory stint length rule was dropped. Hideous nonsense.
