Whatever happens at Le Mans its simply great to see what some original thinking can achieve.

Not since John Cooper got the idea of putting the engine behind, instead of in front, of the driver about 50 years ago have I seen anyone make a really original attempt to explore the relationship between driver,chassis, engine and wheels.

Good luck to them !

I wish people would stop flogging the understeer horse when discussing this car... all it does is show that you are not following the development of the car properly.

All the test drivers have been quoted more than once as saying the car has ample steering, to much in some circumstance and pictures showing the different aero configurations being tested also indicate that they are trying to balance the car more rearward.
