    Fernley was indeed fired within hours of their failure. Presumably by Zak Brown in a very personal manner.

    Jenna Fryer wrote an incredible piece on AP about the series of events that lead to this shocking failure. Including not having a steering wheel ready, buying cars and engineering support from Carlin (whose other two cars did not make the race either), them not being the right colour, and the spare car being re-painted during Alonso's practice crash leading to a lengthy delay.

    The team not converting imperial to metric before testing a new setup from notes they received overnight from other teams, meaning they only got a handful of laps in on the qualifying setup.

    And perhaps most damning of all, they were using a 229mph gear for their shootout run when they were set-up with 227.5 mph gearing. Meaning the car would probably have posted low to mid 228s and maintained the same consistency for the run.

    They shouldn't just have fired Fernley. They should have wiped this entire team out.

    Start over for next year, McLaren.

    And if you're not going to build your own cars, at least buy some from somebody with championship potential.

    Wow that sounds like a total mess, serious rethinking needed if they want to properly commit to the series

    not a 'motersport' per sey. but involves motorsports.
    the difference between a real life race car driver and a race car gamer.
    you're not supposed to go into the light, you're supposed to drift around it.

    Thankfully Porsche has opted not to turbocharge the new RSR. I hope they can keep it this way. It seems they're going for a side exhaust this time, the high-pitched screamer is gone. I found it was exaggerated anyway.

    So...Porsche look set to have run 4 different configurations of 911 RSR GTE cars in 4 years for the Silverstone WEC round.

    In 2015 (last factory appearance) or 2016 (factory supported) they ran the car introduced in November 2013. You can count either for it.
    In 2017 they ran the mid-engined 911 RSR introduced in January 2017. This is the one in Project CARS 2.
    In 2018 they ran the June 2017 spec one.
    And in 2019 they look set to run the Septemver 2019 spec one.
