Sure, SC's or slow zones they will do more laps. Eeking out an extra lap when there's no cautions, no, too much of a risk. Blow it and run out of fuel and you walk away with oeuf on your face...... I don't think it's necessary either. If I was team manager at Toyota, Glick or Alpine, I'd be doing a Wyer, and having the cars run to a set pace - one of them at least (or the only Alpine). As I understand it, it's likely to be hot. I'd let everyone else break their cars....

A good approach.

Let’s say they can all do 13 laps (or chose a different integer). Might be 13.1 for Alpine, 13.5 for Glickenhaus and 13.9 for Toyota. Might color their choice.

13.9 and 13.1 are probably no brainers in both respects. 13.5? You'd have to be pretty sure!

I think you can make the call mid stint as they know how much is left to a decent accuracy nowadays. Certainly do on project cars

Yes, I agree. It is definitely something to aim for and can help psychologically to know you have that one lap pace. As well as the glory as you say

I believe I remember hearing that as well, he thought better of racing and told the team as much. I think it was "spun" (not quite the right word cause of the stank on it usually) as he didn't want to be a hazard, but I think there was some of he himself making that call and being advised maybe LM speeds weren't for him.

And just because it doesn't make the front page of the papers doesn't mean the team doesn't want it. Hell our race won't make the front pages of many papers but it doesn't stop our enjoyment watching, the team is invested in the car doing well personally. A fast lap is a fast lap regardless

S365 says it is the starting drivers

That is a heck of a find for warm up. Not the kind of thing you want to have happen 30 minutes into the race.

As they have already once before as I recall.

Well of course we have 2 farmer's markets this weekend so the start and the end of the race I'll be otherwise occupied so that's great. RLM WILL be on the phone and the wife and business partner can deal. We actually have a few customers who wear Glickenhaus hats so I'm sure they'll approve

Got the French pastries but not in France and none for me so 2 problems there. But they're tasty and a celebration of good butter as God intended.

Nyck De Vries did two flying laps and in warm up:
3:36.022 and 3:33.759.

Not bad!

Spread of laps between 3 and 4 minutes. x axis is seconds over 3 minutes.

It seems like RLM and Eurosport are already quite closely synchronised. When the race starts proper I'll post the best timing delay I can get.
