(This comment, of course, relies on the assumption that all the LMP1 cars are bundled together in one class for WEC points rather than Toyota being in a class of their owner....)
In essence you do agree with me then as that's pretty much what I meant just worded it poorly

The #6 car apparently missed it's scrutineering appointment and had to be fitted in right at the end of the session instead.

They did just one lap to be able to compete if everything gets sorted out?

1 lap each again in FP2! Something is up and needs to be addressed, this looks embarrassing.

I have assume they are looking at a bank balance for some funds to drop in instead of the timing screens right now. Horrible situation.

Not looking too great, both cars only did one lap in both sessions. Nothing to do but wait for an explanation.

If they do one lap of qualifying and/or race they need to be parked for taking up a spot on the grid when other teams with actual running teams and funding could be there. Sad situation.

Very disappointing debut. Explanations will be given without doubt.

Either someone's check didn't clear or they're having major problems with the car. Lack of comment isn't exactly confidence inspiring either.

It has to be funding. The cars ran mostly fine at the Prologue and just had a recent test last week iirc.

Normally Dagys would be first to post even the slighest sniff of a rumour (even if it was nonsense). So the fact he doesn't have anything says quite a lot.

I suspect GG knows, but won't be commenting due to it not being his place to, which is fair enough. It'll really suck if things don't get sorted for Spa.
