50 RWD hybrid on P 4/5 C in 2012. Batteries were heavy.
Unit was complex and expensive. Drivers had trouble understanding
that it's only benefit was low speed torque in 8 second bursts before
the Turbos spooled. They over used it and batteries depleted quickly.
KERS was only good for 50 seconds of 50 HP per Ring lap. Turning petrol
Into charge is silly. Toyota's LMH FWD system makes sense as a lot more KERS
from Front wheel braking can be harvested but remember 2016. Complexity
can be a female dog.
Very good your experience with the 50 HP hybrids in your P4 / 5 C, Really 40 HP hybrid seems like something just to make marketing departments happy.
I remember that the first year of the hybrids was optional in F1 in 2009 and the champion car (The Brown GP) did not use the system. The hybrid system was very good on the straights and at the start of the GP but it was very heavy and that weight unbalanced the chassis in the curves.
But I have a special memory of Raikkonen's victory at Spa Francorchamps with the Ferrari with that beautiful overtakes to Fisichella and the hybrid system was essential at that time but was 80 HP (the double of the power that now )for about half the weight.

That was a while ago. That seem's to have gotten their attention and since then they have been very supportive. They seem to have liked what I said about Aston...

We all know that Kolles will struggle to stay ahead of the top LMP2 runners, they know it too. If they achieve even 1 hour without an issue then thats an improvement for them on previous Le Mans starts but im glad they are coming back. I like having these small teams trying to achieve a dream, good luck to them. It wont end well, it never does but ill be cheering for them.

Glad to know they are still working on it, but that article didn't really make me feel that they will be on the grid next season. This is my favorite quote:

Quote:
“We are now in phase seven of the hypercar program. It started in phase one, but we are now in phase seven.”
Great, you made it 7 steps, but out of how many? 10? 100? 1000?

I have serious doubts but at the same time I have no doubts at all. This team has been eating itself and collapsing for over a decade now, but it refuses to die. They also have the incredible ability to play the ACO every single year and still keep them just about sweet enough to let them have another crack of the whip.

I'm very confident I will see this new hyper car barbecuing itself twenty minutes into the 2021 Le Mans 24 Hours.
