Yeah he did! Hanley was clearly the fastest driver in the car. You can view the times on the alkamel systems site and see he wasn't just the guy who put in their fastest lap, but on average was faster than Van der Zande too.

LMPFan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
SMP are running the high downforce BR1's at Silverstone.

Agreed. Why do the new rules have to move away from this look? Just make the cockpit a smidge wider and they'd be perfect.

Another agreement from me.

Although I would add that it'd be nice if the front fender/headlights were less vertical. Everyone is going that way now since the R18s, and it isn't pretty. When they do the overhang it's pretty ugly. Otherwise, I think it's awesome.

They've been edging towards that since the Acura ARX-02 and Audi R15 days. Trying to get air around the fenders rather than primarily over them. That also dates back to the Lister Storm LMP. Not a big fan of the current interpretation, specifically most of the LM variants, but you can't argue with the wind tunnel figures.

That's a product of the rules and limiting other areas where you can make downforce or reduce drag. They should bring back a form of ground effects and you won't need to have weirdly shaped fenders. But I do like the way the current lmp's look. I actually wish they were wider and kept the cockpit size as is. I would like to see the cars as wide as GTE, or 2050-2100mm and big wide 15" tires back again. I'll miss the current cars and hope the new ones look as good as the Aston Martin Valkyrie and the Toyota Gazoo Racing Super Sport.

2050-2100mm i view as way to wide for LMP's.

I would like low, wide cars that actually look like prototypes. Not skinnier GT's. That's why I said they should be as wide as GTE is. Those cars look more like the low-wide gt type prototype than 1900mm wide DP-bubble cockpit cars weve seen renders of.

Everyone needs to understand that they're running against the fastest lmp1 yet in the Toyota. On top of that, the cars are new, running new HD kits, Silverstone had a repave that has caught lmp teams out because it's bumpy and other factors like lack of tire development. Give them some more time and I think by the end of the year they will be a lot closer.
