As long as big factory dollar (well, Euros) are involved, I can't see AWD - partial or otherwise - being taken off the table or nerfed into irrelevance. It's too big a crutch for the manufacturer(s) who can afford it, as we've recently seen.

Maybe the ACO will go all TUSC and have the 007/A480 leave the GR010 for dead on pure pace, but in the race they cannot get past due to the hybrid/4WD pull out of the corners

Obviously AWD comes with an advantage + Toyota have always been a pioneer in Hybrid technology.

I will say it again:

ACO has a fair KW and MJ per stint BoP.

Toyota went for a faster racecar, an AWD racecar=exploited all the possibilities to make the car the fastest and safest to drive and the regulations allow it. The others should have gone the same way if they wanted to be an opposition to Toyota.

Plus, Toyota is preparing for the big guys, Peugeot, Ferrari who will have AWD too.

Except for that pesky little thing called BOP and the rules. You know, other than that sure AWD would be an advantage.

And have we heard ANY details about the Ferrari car?
