Artur should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The Silverstone HD pack worked great and I bet 919 will be the fastest car on Nurb, using it, and they still have plenty of time to test and develop the 3rd pack that will likely debut on Mexico.

Porsche did a 4-day test at Barcelona focusing on their third aero package. They did over 2900km. Their twitter said the drivers were reporting neck pain must be some serious downforce.

That ...or the drivers being slightly out of shape after the summer break.

I'm beginning to get a little concerned that a new Technical Director has not yet been announced. There is still time, but IMO the sooner you can get the management team in place, the more time he/she will have to adapt and immerse themselves into the future project(s).

Relevant bit for those that will closely follow the race:
Quote:
At normal race speed (no safety car) the Porsche 919 Hybrid is due for refuelling after every 33 laps.
and this other one might hint to a compound choice of Porsche:
Quote:
A set of Michelin slick tyres should last two fuel tank fills.
Last year, IIRC, they were all single-stinting there.


My personal interest is on the aero, and overall tech bits of the cars, so what I'm looking for is checking out the new front end of the 919:
Quote:
The majority of the modifications are covered by the bodywork, while the new look of the carís front is obvious
I don't expect any major changes(for instance, a high/er nose), but I'm curious anyway.

Agreed. How many other manufacturers would post a picture of a competitor in a positive light?

They continue to be classy about the LM win. People may also not realize there might be some deeper respect for Toyota from Porsche. Potential roots in the mid 1990's and the ex-Toyota production engineers (via Shingijutsu) that helped save Porsche via conversion to Kaizen lean manufacturing methods. I expect that experience also impacted a wider VAG later on.

A great example of what is good about Sportscar racing. We hear too much from those without respect.

Go Porsche. Go Toyota. Go Audi.

I've heard that they will, at regular intervals, be serving light refreshments from those tea-trays at the front throughout the proceedings.
