    Well if Porsche are out, what do Toyota do? Race le Mans by themselves?
    Actually, they'll probably lose to LMP2. Again. That would be more embarrassing than losing to Porsche.

    Looks like it might be best to revert back to 2012-2013 spec hybrid systems until this can be sorted out. I know that sounds like a step backwards, but the only 3 manufacturers who built cars are pretty much backing out. They don't allow private teams to run these cars, so what else is there to do other than disband hybrid LMP1 entirely at this point?

    Wow... If Toyota goes out, then LMP1 of today is ruined...how will Le Mans run in 2018 if this happens, with the fact Porsche said they're sure they're going out this year???

    Give them a choice? Hybrid or non-hybrid for both factory and privateer. BoP will be tricky. Can't see it being impossible though.

    ...You've seen how I react to people, make them feel good, make them think that anything's possible. If I make them laugh along the way, sue me. And I don't do it so they turn round and go 'Thank you David for the opportunity, thank you for the wisdom, thank you for the laughs.' I do it so, one day, someone will go 'There goes David Brent. I must remember to thank him.'
