That's a good idea! Make qualifying free and if people like it, they'll pay.

Great lap by Lopez on used tires. Only lost 3 tenths while Nakajima lost over a second. Lets see if anyone improves after this red.

Odd session that one. LMP2 was amusing - Pastor took 7 attempts to register a legitimate lap!

SMP car looks fast but so difficult to drive. That might hurt them over a full race tomorrow.

Good for Button, going out there and doing the best non-hybrid lap at the end of the session. The back of the lmp1 field looks like a toss up between ByKolles and the Dragonspeed BR1. ByKolles missed fp2 because the fire and the Dragonspeed just seems to have slow drivers. Race pace at least looks closer than qualifying and there might be rain so I hope it's a fight between Toyota and the rest, but another record lap by them in qualifying shows the speed of that car. Aston Martin being right on the heels of the Ford is a pleasant surprise too.

But it looks good when LMP1 NH is closer to Toyota (SMP and Rebellion) than to best LMP2 (Dragonspeed and Bykolles). The latter two had bigger problems and generally less running in the season tough. Hope they improve.


The Aston Martin gain is incredible. From the slowest to the second best car.

Agree. The f1 drivers had mentioned at this years silverstone round that the track was faster and had more grip but that the bumps were worse, certainly can be seen on the SMP cars.

That's why I was surprised that the NA cars got the weight reduction along with the increased FF for silverstone. TC cars will have gains in efficiency but given that the oreca chassis has been developed over a longer period I think the 15kg weight reduction offered to NA cars was a bit much.

However Button was unlucky with the yellow, would have taken edge off tyres. Fair play to rebellion for getting the car together, great effort, and kolles too. Here's to the prospect of some great racing tomorrow

The SMP Dallara driven by Jensen Button set a laptime of 1:38.305 which i believe is better than any hybrid has that lapped this track not named the TS050.

There's a new stat in the alkamel timing data. It's called "noise control". I assume this is decibels at the start finish line.

Porsche, Ford, BMW(surprised?) all at 110-115dB which is right at the upper limit. Ferrari's passing the line under 100dB most of the time. The Ferrari is too muffled.

Looks pretty close in GTEPro. I want to see what the Aston's and BMWs can do over the distance. Porsche was surprisingly slow considering how quick they were at Spa and their BOP unchanged from that round. Could be differing tire strategies at play

3 tenths quicker than last years 919 - good call!

Shows that the P1 privateers really aren't as far off as people claim. They've made really good cars. Toyota just took a big step forward again. Toyota are still developing the car as if Audi and Porsche were still there - and good on them for not sitting back and cruising.

I agree Toyota out qualified Porsche at about the same margin last year on this track.

I'm going to say this and hope he doesn't prove me wrong: Hedman has improved a lot, especially in LMP2. He's no longer LMP3 speed in an LMP2. He's midfield LMP2, and that's all he needs to be.

BoP breaks can give you incredible gains for sure.

What is the purpose of this document though? The noise regulation has not changed I guess. What are they going to tell those that posted too many red values?

+0,06 is a small boost, for sure it's not enough to justify this performance gain. Min. weight didn't change too.

Guess that prodrive found the way to make work the car at the best.
Or maybe they tested so much at silverstone......

let's wait tomorrow race and next 2 races to find out the consistence of the car.
