Yes, on balance I can agree with that.

Buemi doesn't seem to buy it. From S365:

Quote:
***Sebastien Buemi did not appear convinced at Alpine’s claimed straight-line speed struggles during the test day. “There is no reason they should be more down than [at] Spa, and they have more power than Spa,” he told Sportscar365. “We have been racing them since a long time now: there is no surprise. They will be much better in the race, when it counts.”

I'd call that a typical BOP disagreement. Alpine guys want better BOP so they're saying what they're saying, while Toyota guys certainly don't want their rivals to get better BOP so they're saying what they're saying

Last year, the BOP between the Glikenhaus and the Alpine was right i think. The car that was not in the performance window was the Toyota.


They haven't touch the Glikenhaus BOP and have slowed down the Toyota and to me, it seems to be the right move. But I don't understand why they have hit Alpine and not let them run with last year BOP. They have akreday a smaller fuel tank that is not helping them and because of this they have to pit more ofen. If on the top of that, you are the slowest, it doesn't make any sense.

The size of their tank, despite the improvements before Le Mans last year is limited by Alpine not the rules. (I assume this is still the case). So I don’t relate the stint length verses the speed as a balancing type thing. That’s not he intent of this rule set.
Difficult to know what stint they could do if they did have the tank size they are allowed.

However, it does appear that it is a little too slow. Especially as they were fast at Sebring. Did the changes really make that much difference?

We won't find out until the race starts. If they're sandbagging hoping for a last-minute BOP change, they will keep doing so until Saturday.

I don't envy those in charge of BOP. It's a very hard balance to strike. However from the sounds of it, it seems they have got it just about right in the top class. And at the end of the day the cream will still rise to the top. It's down to whoever can make the BOP work best for them
