Tough luck for the #14. There was nowhere for Mike to go with a spinning LMP2 right in front of him. Kudos for the #12 being in the mix right up until it all went up in flames, literally.

Toyota WEC cars have been hit with substantial BoP for the first race weekend. Ferrari escaped the BoP with a scratch so I would assume they are the favorites to win the WEC opener. Peugeot got big boost in performance as well.

I saw that they have also made the RC-F GT3 the heaviest of the GT3s

Good news if you have a Max subscription. I have Max through Xfinity. Having to watch LeMans on Motortrend was a hassle with their endless commercials for the same programs on their channel.


EDIT: Well turns out there is a little caveat to the above story. You have to get the BR Sports $9.99 a month addon to have WEC coverage.

Session 2 went great for Akkodis apparently. Lets see if they can translate that into real world performance on Saturday.

When it comes to hypercars I would rather keep my mouth shut. Unfortunately I can't, it's already turning into Porsche-Ferrari shitshow. So predictable and obvious what office wants out of this season.

The Lexus RC Fs have the highest top speed too, by a margin of at least 10 kph compared to the next fastest cars. I assume they're going to be balanced by being a bit slower in the corners, but this should spell some success for us in Le Mans. :)

Woah there bud, don't worry now. Toyota is clearly sandbagging here. This is something that they always have done and will always do. They were sandbagging the living hell out of the first few sessions and during qualifying in Sebring last year and look what happened in the race. They lapped everyone.

JOTA Sport revealed their hand too early and Ferrari is pretty balanced right now. I'm sure the Ferraris will eclipse them quite easily.

What we need to pay attention to is the sole Caddy and the Peugeots. The former is looking pretty racy while the latter has the best BoP out of all the hypercars right now.

Porsche might be partying too hard in these testing sessions but Ferrari is visceral looking on the track. If they loose out on the P1 after Saturday it would be rather due to their inexperience than the actual car. Can't really tell how Toyota is up ahead until BoP revision cause their BoP right now is pretty heavyweight.

Yeah but their BoP isn't THAT ideal either. I still think this is a fight between Ferrari and Toyota at the end of the day, with the Peugeots and Caddy trying to nip at the heels of the frontrunners.
