    ...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.'

    the ACO/FIA just need to give Toyota the trophy at the start of the race since its their race to lose anyways.

    Regardless, even if Toyota does ‘win’ it will be empty and meaningless and true motorsports fans will know it was fabricated and all a sham.

    I really don't get the hostility towards Toyota. They didn't ask for Audi or Porsche to withdraw from the sport. This is the hand they've been dealt, and they're playing it. It's the ACO that won't let the non-hybrid cars beat a hybrid manufacturer entry, because it goes against what they want from Le Mans. None of this is Toyota's fault, and yet they get blamed for it. They stuck by a championship that would have collapsed if they'd left. They deserve huge credit for that.

    And no victory at Le Mans is meaningless.

    incorrect. the FIA/ACO had to appease Toyota in order for them to stay for another year. Toyota had no interest in staying if they weren't going to be the fastest. That's why the FIA/ACO has drafted the rules the way that they did, and will penalize privateer/non-hybrid teams if they are faster than the TS050's

    I haven't seen a race yet but what happened? A privateer LMP1 got first and they will get BOP'ed back behind Toyota?
