They did miss an entire practice session. Maybe with that they would have been closer.

Probably they need a new chassis to see the full potential of the NISMO engine.

It will be interesting if they could run that engine in a Oreca Chassis.

In that context, they can also drop the LMP1 plans and move to GTE Am. I don't think that is what they are looking for.

Team members wanted of course a new chassis and others had also the idea to run a customer chassis like Dallara or Ginetta, but the boss Dr. Colin Kolles doesn't want it.

Car lost 4 laps due to a repair to front and a replacement of the whole underbody after a contact of Oliver Webb. Looses later 12 minutes more after the wiring of the gearbox made problems. Later Rene Binder lost the car and hit the walls, so hard to say about the potential. Rene Binder tweeted that the starting position was far away from the car's potential. They did a lot of development work but had also more try and error than larger teams. They would need a solid race to have a look on their car's real potential. Wind tunnel test would also help but cost too much

Seems like the team needs a shot in the arm in terms of funds to get more talent and more resources to get on top of the reliability. Maybe it's best they trundle along with what they have and save money for the new rules.

Did everyone miss this piece of comedy? https://sportscar365.com/lemans/wec/...rcar-for-2020/


A well-balanced person is one who finds both sides of an issue laughable.

I didn't catch the humor, could you point it out? Is it their aspirations to win LM? Or to come up with their own 'hypercar'? I think at least the latter is realistic seeing as how they've been racing for just about every season of the WEC so far in lmp1. At least partially. No other team has done that except Toyota.

Both are very funny. How can they have aspirations to win LM if they don't even manage to finish it properly? It just ain't their story.

And to be fair, as of now at least, LMP1 is about the only place that a team can run and build their own cars.

I give you that. Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable, than loyalty.

Not sure it still can make sense for them if they wish to win Le Mans.

I suspect they know they're never likely to win Le Mans.
