This ferrari is a proper prototype. It's a shame the ACO have nerfed LMP1 performance. We should be in the 3:12s at Le Mans.

Are they still running diesels in LeMans? I haven't ever really followed that series.

Are the rules very restrictive in terms of bodywork, etc.? Except in detail, the Ferrari and Porsche look pretty similar with high wheel arches and low mid body and a tiny cockpit pod. And a number of details are remarkably similar too e.g. roof top strakes.

It's very similar looking to the Porsche. Nice livery. Hope it runs well.
I pointed that out as well. The similarity is uncanny.

It could point to an aerodynamic convergence.

Stopped with Audi withdrawal sadly.
But what Baretzky pioneered is what the current F1 engine philosophy has evolved from. IMHO.

Many of the manufacturers that compete in FIA Le Mans Hypercar and Daytona LMDh do not build their own chassis/aero. The chassis are built by Oreca, Dallara and Multimatic...

Yes, it could be a convergence. I wasn't sure if the rules regarding bodywork were just pushing the teams that way - I haven't studied the rules for the series so haven't an answer to that.

That's because LMDh Chassis are only built by 4 manufacturers, and an engine and gearbox is supplied as well. That's the main difference between LMH and LMDh. LMH allows the manufacturers to build the entire car to whatever regs they have set.

There is a good video about it here:

It's a convergence 40 years in the making, ever since Group C started. Not much to go around with when you want to achieve low-drag high-efficiency design with closed cockpit and wheels. Now that FIA made LMH and LMDh rules around fixed L, D and L/D values, there are a lot of things teams can do with these cars (within wheelbase allowance) but optimal design concept doesn't leave a lot of room for it. The devil is in the details. And how the FIA measures those L, D values :wink:
And they call it a stall. A STALL!
