I was quite close to where the incident happened, although I was looking the other way (as always).

I got onto the scene quite quickly and Simon was very still in the car which sent shivers down me. Thankfully he started moving and I could hear him speaking to the marshals. They quite rightly took their time extracting him from the car and I didn't mind at all when they hid the area from view with sheets to repel us rubber-neckers.

the top 3 all agreed that the traffic was particularly difficult to deal with at silverstone, citing the high speed nature of the track. after watching some of the lmp2 cars try and scythe through the slower cars it's not really a surprise to hear...!

great news to hear dolan is ok. jota seem to have some pretty rubbish luck in general - they were ridiculously quick last year too, and yet it didn't really come together for them in the middle part of the season. at least there's a decent gap before imola to sort the car out.

It appears that the Morgan has slightly faster top end speed, especially with the Judd in the back. Didn't expect to see that given Nissan's popularity.

The Morgan-Nissan of TDS was even faster, but I think the main learning from the Charts is that the fastest teams in Silverstone (eg. Race-Perf. Jota, Murphy) weren´t the ones with the highest Top-speed, which supposes that a high downforce-setup was more helpful in the traffic.
The exception was TDS, which won, but had difficulties in overtaking the slower (in means of Topspeed) Race-performance-car. It needed Gommedy and a mishap in the traffic for the swiss Oreca to do so.

Not a surprise to me that the Judd engined cars have a higher top speed. Judd engined cars also had a higher top speed at Le Mans last year.

does anyone have any thoughts about the michelin tyres? granted, signatech alpine lost a day at ricard to get to grips with them (no pun intended) but the other 2 cars weren't exactly on it either.

The Judd and Honda engine both have more power at high rpm.
The Nissan engine has a nice torque distribution over a wider rpm range, so it's a lot more forgiving if you get the corner wrong, so preferred by Am drivers...

Tell me about it! It did at the circuit and it did last Sunday too when I sat down to watch it on TV. I was so engrossed in it all over again that although I had initially intended to watch maybe an hour of it before going off to do something else, I ended up watching the lot in one sitting.

I for one I'm very happy to see Judd properly back in the game, some of the best sounds I ever heard from Le Mans when I was going religiously from 2002 to 2012 were from Judd engines!

No offense, but for future graphs can you flip the values on the axis? Really strange seeing the higher top speeds on the left...
