Maybe if the new Ford vs Ferrari is a good one, that could become annual double-feature really good racing films besides 1971 really are rare, I mean Rush and Grand Prix are pretty good but I wouldn't really watch them in LM build-up

What is 'real motor racing' then? It is the only (non-spec, non-club) racing series left without BoP adventures, so I would classify it as real racing... yes you have DRS, spec cheese tires, test ban, lame circuits, limited entry list, non-racing in the wet and other tomfoolery, all things that drive us away, which is why I very rarely watch it... however, essentially the best car, engineering and team will always win, not whoever has the best lawyers or luck draw, and that should be applauded for. With LMP1 / Hypercar going little by little to the dark side, in the footsteps of spec galore LMP2 and to greater extent entertainment weekly GTE, F1 still has the authenticity card every other series has lost. Even if otherwise the product is what it is.

Stint length regs have no place in endurance racing. Period.

I’d be happier if they scrapped them and Toyota still won by a handy margin. Didn’t have an issue when Audi dominated the privateers before Peugeot got involved. You think fair enough. They’ve worked hard on their effiency so if that gives them an edge so be it. It was earned not just handed to them by the regs.

Goodyear is controlling owner of Sumitomo, which owns Dunlop's tire division (as well as Falken last time I heard), so, yes, technically Goodyear is controlling owner of Dunlop (tire brand).
