I really do think that this was Toyota's big chance, what with the misfortunes that struck Audi early on. They can't count on that happening again next year. Plus Porsche will be in the mix then. It should truly be a "don't miss it" race.
Toyota have said that they didn't expect to challenge this year and that next year will be when they are fully up to speed. Lets remember they weren't even meant to run the car last year but were beg to come in a year early.
I agree next year will be interesting and after getting fully into it this year I'm already planning to get tickets to go and be there for my firstvLe Mans!
I'm pretty sure Buemi will be driving the Toyota again then too.
The Renault EDams is the beat car there is no question. However his team mate hasn't troubled the top end much and Teecheeh have pretty much the same equiptment with Jean Eric Vergne at the wheel. So you have to put it 70% in the hands of Buemi. He just manages the car better than anyone out there.
He has the best power unit (thus car). However, there are three other drivers with that drive system, of which only JEV has approached the area behind his rear wing.
Di Grassi tends to be wiser tactically, in my opinion, which is why he challenges in title races. Those two have been the absolute class of the Formula even back to the spec-series year (when they were joined by Piquet).
