The move to "stock" GT3 machinery was meant to level the playing field and reduce the influence of manufacturers, but based on the past weekend, some old habits die hard.
Well, for this they would have needed to close the regs a bit more. Look at my post from February, it was obvious from the beginning. A bit later Merc announced a part truck and data sharing among the teams
To me it is even surprising how well Ferrari played it (it=BOP
Next year with competitive BMWs and hopefully a similar approach will be more interesting...hopefully. But mostly I hope they limit a bit the factory Merc approach.
This weekend was not good. The meltdown of KVL, which started in Hockenheim, was not good for anyone. The team orders was crazy. The penalties were the worst example I ever saw in motorsports...it was not even the 5sec for the T-Bone, but they also dropped 5sec penalties for one handed tire lifting, that you could not even spot in the replay...
