Ok, so the article is good, but people didn't enjoy the equations as much.

Would similar type articles be of interest? For example, the ideas we discussed were the G-Drive DQ at Le Mans, and the Toyota DQ at Silverstone - brief articles on those. Or is there anything anyone would like to see explained? We can't guarantee it can be done, but it's worth asking people what they think.

I think a G-Drive DQ article would be well appreciated! It was a very technical matter with the different regulated zones and where the team inserted parts. I imagine an article could explore this with different images and explanations (for example could also include the view of the team).

The equations are good. Iím always wary of using this physics when tyres are involved as they quite often donít behave in a linear fashion. However this article wasnít building a simulator and the point of the article was how the tyres behave differently depending on how they were treated anyway, so no real false assumptions.

The article was also written so that you didnít need the equations. So it was relevant for those who appreciate it and those that arenít so bothered.

Donít cut out things just because every part of the article isnít liked or needed by everyone. That is what the rest does (or they arenít capable of adding this additional content).

Good stuff

It was a detailed article. On the matter of power transmitted to the tires, you have to remember that Toyota sends hybrid power to the rear wheels in addition to the front because it has dual kers. It would be nice to find out how much it's split between the two. The tires must be pretty durable on the rear as well when you think about that burst of power sent to them.

Watching the youtube replay of the race now. I am trying to pretend the Toyotas are not there.

Forgive the slight lateness of the post, but here's my trackside vid from Practice 3, Qualifying for the WEC and the 4hrs ELMS race from Silverstone this year if anyone interested:
