AUDI hybrids showed potential on Spa. Looks like Toyota is doing really well too. May be we won't miss Peugeout fight.

What does Delta time means - good, bad, or just too early to say as it is supposed to last in the race with less pitstops:)

The ACO has limited the Deltawing to 3:45 so if you are being picky you COULD say that 3:47 is a bit slower than expected but given the project and the small amount of testing it's pretty good really.

Marino Franchitti said in an interview on Radio Le Mans that its a huge expectation for the car to finish, but as long as they can get it back to the pits they will try and repair it and get back in the race... the goal is that while it is running that it proves the concept - half the fuel and half the tyre usage while running the required pace

Frankly I would be most surprised if DW finishes at all (apart from it is new project and there is so little testing). Looks like their pilots played it safe just to qualify. I'm sorry, but that is not the purpose of a race in general.

Simple calculation on 24 hours race shows they can't be even in the LMP2 middle (with half pitstops).

Anyway despite I'm quite pessimistic, let's see what happens in the race, may be it will be something revolutionary:)
