Well, the Audi has the same V6t engine, unlike the new V6tt for Toyota. And Silverstone has always been an 'Audi track' with their high downforce car. Toyota's car is nowhere near what Audi and Porsche were running in terms of a true high downforce package. Lets also take into account the Audi was dq'ed because it ran illegally. So that may have flattered it's performance slightly more. I don't think Toyota is sandbagging. I think they're trying to come to grips with a totally new car. Hope it turns out for them. They seem confident it will.

it was confirmed that it was a pressure drop during SC period that caused the ride height lowering that followed in DQ... audi was great at silverstone because the overall package is great! they didn't cheat, truth is that sometimes sh!t happens, and you can't do anything to dodge the ball.

Disagree about high downforce matter... last year at silverstone, both 919 were in low drag configuration and were competitive enough to win.

Nah, that's a Carrera GT.

Well, in this case.... it's a cgt (Carrera GT). Funny though.

Tire pressure? I thought Audi's reasoning was excessive bouncing http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/123890? I didn't say they were cheating, but a too-worn plank means the car was running lower to the ground which can produce faster lap times.

At Silverstone 2015 Porsche had a lot higher top speed than Audi and had 8mj vs 4mj. This year it was 8mj vs. 6mj both with high downforce cars and like top speeds.

A great feature that a WEC online subscription could offer that I would be happy to pay for is class specific feeds. Channel 1 would focus on LMP1 for the entire 6 hour race. Ditto for Channel 2 (P2), Channel 3 (GTE). All with the regular RLM commentary though. I'd be all about that idea. I would feel the same way for that idea with IMSA.

The P1 Hybrid-Nonhybrid EOT table isn't on FIA site visible yet, but I doubt that's really changed given the recent trend there

I didn't have much time to analyse more carefully the onboards from Silverstone but, after a brief look into it, it seemed that Audi cars had very ill handling. The R18 has plenty of grip, noticebly more than the 919 and even more so than the TS050, but it's very inconsistent in the high speed corners and the drivers constantly missed apexes due to understeer while other times suffered the opposite, oversteer. Porsche and Toyota were more stable and if Audi don't fix that, it might make things very tough for them throughout the season. They had a 5 day testing at Aragon, if I'm not mistaken, and apparently that was, partially, used to fix the FRIC issues that alledgelly led to the worn plank. If the bad handling and the bouncing(FRIC issues) were related, then good for them and they likely solved the problem. Otherwise, this might become their biggest concern after reliability.

As for Toyota, I'm sure they'll be on par, if not faster, on S1 and S3. The crucial point here for them is S2 and how much they manage to minimize their lack of pace there.

Finally, I think the -10MJ will hurt far more at Spa than at Silverstone and I don't believe they will reach 1.54 again.

The Audi wasn't made to run illegally, so it wasn't running they way it was meant to run. I don't see why the excessive plank wear must mean enhanced performance. I suspect it was the opposite.

The plank being worn means it was scraping the ground more than the other cars. That means the ride height was lower or Audi's suspension is bad. Too worn a plank being grounds for disqualification should let you know that it's a performance gain by having the car that low. I don't know if bouncing is a real reason or if that's just Audi's pr excuse. I remember the Audi really bouncing at Spa last year, but they weren't dq'ed for plank wear.

Same here, it works in the app but not in browser. Nice to see Toyota setting the pace in first few laps.
