I´m a bit surprised about the lap time difference around Spa when compared to F1. 1:58.3 for LMP1 (FP1) when F1 did 1:45.5 (FP1 too). I know they´re different philosophies, but didn´t know the difference is so big, specially when taking into account the dramatic drag difference between the two categories. Power is similar, so obvioulsy the difference comes from DF
Obviously LMP1 cars don´t have a front wing comparable to F1 cars. What about the floor? It is that different too?
As you may guess, this is my first time watching WEC. I´m eager to see Alonso winning something, almost as much as himself
Last year's pole was 54.0 (combined lap time) by Porsche, i believe Toyota has a lot in store still.
Peak power is about the same, but F1 is at or near this peak for a lot longer, rules are made so that a 650 hp non hybrid car can compete with the hybrids.
Not quite true but that's what the rules are suppoused to do.
Floor is flat and also quite high(stepped?) like F1, don't know which is higher honestly, visually appears to be WEC.
Most teams don't go for the coke bottle shape, usually they just cover the rear tire, the Toyota tries to have a bit of both.
