Practice 1 & 2 have concluded with Toyota (obviously) up front, the #8 car leading both sessions in lmp1. The gap between them and the next lmp1 is about 1.7 seconds.

In lmp2 the Signatec Alpine Oreca led while in GTE the new Aston Martin is the pace setter so far. Practice 3 is in 30 minutes and has been extended from 60 to 90 minutes due to stoppages in both the first two practice sessions. Those stoppages were from curbing being broken and ripped up by cars which needed work on the track.

No coverage on TV, no youtube streaming. What's going on with WEC?

I'm hoping there's something in terms of free streaming for the race. Anyway it was a good qualifying session. Aston Martin and BMW on the front row in GTE, and then in lmp1 the #7 pulled out pole from the #8 after one of Buemi's laps was deleted. Not record setting pace from the Toyotas this round and the private teams (Rebellion) were under a second back on average.

I guess it was just the WEC stream for qualifying? I'm paid up, so was able to watch it, but amazed there was nothing free to view.

The BR1's looked horrible in qualifying...

It was also streamed on Motorsport TV for those who subscribe to that service, and of course there was an audio version on RS3 from Radio Le Mans, which was free.

I spoke too soon. Now they'll start from the back like at Spa. I'll give them 5 laps before they are at the back of the lmp field, if that.

They don't start a lap down though I don't think.

Correct, although I'm not sure where exactly they will start on the grid. DSC understood that they would be placed at the back of the LMP1 field, but the implication from the article on the WEC website is that they will start at the very back of the grid.

I thought they would start at the back of the prototype field meaning behind the P2s. Afaik that has happened in the past

If a driver isn't paying attention and doesn't brake for the speed limit in time they get penalised. Doesn't matter if they press the button or not. The pit lane limiter won't brake the car.
