Congrats to Bernhard, Webber and Hartley - World Champions! Great race, as they have been all season. Looking forward to seeing what Toyota come up with for 2016 and how Audi respond to the move forward by Porsche.
The close of another great season in WEC. As a life-long Porsche fan, I can't help but be pleased with the outcome.
If Audi does, indeed, pull the plug on the racing program because of VWs emissions shenanigans, I will be more than a little upset. I am not sure that Toyota will be able to fill the gap that Audi would leave behind by withdrawing, so the effect on the best series in racing (IMO) could be huge.
I still think that, even if that is the case, the series will continue to be much closer and more entertaining than F1.
Interesting that they don't state who will be their tyre supplier. I suspect that they will require unique tyres to withstand the greater downforce loads conferred by the fan system. Could it be that they have yet to find a manufacturer willing to foot such a large bill?
Congratulations to Toyota, Alonso, Buemi and Nakajima on winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2018.
Managing to defeat the only other car with a realistic chance of winning, another Toyota, rather puts the mockers on what should be a truly great victory as in previous years.
Sadly, should Alonso go on to win Indy, he will be feted as a successor to Graham Hill. The achievements are incomparable and I feel sorry for Alonso, unless he thinks it’s the same achievement.
