The poster did not imply that at all. I know this because it was me. You are very quick to tell people to read what you wrote, so in this case it'd be wise to follow your advice.

Then what else could you possibly be implying with 'they know who pays the bills'? Hedman pays for team, you and I both know that.

I didn't imply anything, I replied to the statement of DragonSpeed "have no idea what kind of championship they're in" with yes they do, and they are there because Hedman pays for them to be there. The extrapolating out to "Hedman chose not to pay for the test" was all your doing, nobody else.

DragonSpeed knows exactly what they are doing. If they feel they won't gain enough to regain the cost then they won't do it.

Just saying something twice doesn't make it true.

Maybe I'll just ask again: what possible good reason could there be to skip this test programme? If it's cost then it's absolutely clear they have no idea what they're doing in LMP1 as I've already laid out, and you fail to address once again.

Everything was read correctly. If they think somehow the cost of this test is too much they are clearly wrong. Every other team is participating, that says enough.

What else was there, chassis side Dallara was the only choice given that they had already contacted Oreca much earlier and their response was "No we don't want you" + Ginetta looked shady unprepared for anything and CLM... lol

AER's craptastic running record in longer endurance races says enough on the engine department, why would you wish to have that?

If they had been able to obtain Oreca like they originally intended there wouldn't have been need for switches as Zytek would've been perfectly suitable from the get go
