how much of a difference can 9hp make on a le mans lap? For Alpine something like 6 seconds......

Quote:
A new BoP table for the Hypercar class shows the Alpine A480 Gibson with a maximum power output of 427 kW (around 573 horsepower), marking a 7 kW or 9 hp uptick compared to the amount it had available for the track sessions held before Thursday.

It did gain some top speed into FP3.

Also interesting that everyone has a slower top speed in qualifying.

It was actually quite difficult to move around Le Mans yesterday with the sand clouds emanating from the Alpine. So many bleating about poor Alpine, but they've been playing a fairly standard game, very obviously.

It looked to us as though the ACO had been well and truly suckered.

Not sure about this, they're still not on Toyota level and during the race they will suffer in LMP2 traffic. Glickenhaus is more interesting however, I hope they will be able to show some more pace during the race than they did in hyperpole...

When i was driving home from work last night I had RLM on from FP4. Paul said that Alpine managed to do a 13 lap stint, same as Toyota and Glick. They weren't really sure how that was possible because it didn't involve slow zones or yellows until the 13th lap. If they have found a lap since last year I would be amazed, and suspicious.

That is even more significant.

Toyota have been worried that the stints might not be that different all year, but that never really came to be.

Lapierre said their tactic was to push which doesn’t suggest saving fuel. There is also the smallest of hints about the stint length in here when taking about last year. Might be reading too much into this:

Well they think they've nailed BoP so they're moving on to AoP for LMP2s now

"Details of how the AoP process will work are limited at this stage."
In the end it will be just another name for the same thing with minor adjustments.

Weren't they doing 12-lap stints last year? Now they have less power so 13 laps doesn't sound impossible.

We know that Toyota have it in the bag if they run reliably, however I'm not totally convinced they will. Alpine found a LOT of pace in Hyperpole and that supposed 13 lap stint makes me think they'll still be there or thereabouts if they run reliably. They'll just have to do their overtaking in the Porsche curves.... I remain unconvinced by the 'hard done by' Alpine bleating....

As far as I'm concerned, there should be no changes at all made BoP wise - anywhere on the grid.

Good point, so far this season they hadn't had a single race without any issues, accidents and other misfortunes.

It could be very interesting. The winner could well end up just being the most reliable of the 5.
