I think maybe 3:12s are possible, but < 3:10 is out of reach unless they run unrestricted (which I don't think will be allowed, officially).

Thank you for the precious data! Can t wait to see what Toyota is capable of with this weight, MJ and the new Aero kit for LM.

They would also need the sister car to give them a tow on the straights.

Then, I presume there is a possibility of a 3:11. 3:12 I think is doable with soft tyres and without restrictions without a tow.

How much time was attributable to favorable wind conditions for the 3:14 lap? I seem to remember there was a tail wind going down Mulsanne, and head wind through the Porsche Curves giving more downforce?

If there was it was minimal. Those days that year were all hot and devoid of much wind.

This has to do with Toyota and its LMP1 car. Maybe it does not exactly fit this thread but I thought it was intersting to share it.
Yesterday, "Campeones" (racing media from Argentina), had an extensive chat with José María "Pechito" López via Instagram Live and one of the many things he shared was the shootout in which he gained his spot in the team. Toyota called 12 drivers to test along 3 days (4 drivers each day) and some of the names were Jean-Éric Vergne, Sam Bird, Kevin Magnussen, Adrian Sutil, Felipe Nasr, Ryō Hirakawa and Heikki Kovalainen.

New names in that list. I heard Sutil, Hirakawa and Jev but not the others.
