The issue is that lap times do not make a race car. If I can out accelerate you coming out of a corner then I will win the race, regardless if the overall lap times are the same. You would have to have a huge amount of extra hp in the 2 wheel drive car, and a lot lower drag to be able to pass me on a long straightaway. Like the Mulsanne. But then I would just out brake you going into the chicanes in my 4wd hyprid and come out of teh corner harder and faster. All-I repeat - Every lap sim I have ever done or seen always shows the same thing: You have to BOP the hell (negatively) out of the proper hypercars (Toyota, Peugeot, Ferrari) and BOP (positively) any other car to get any sort of equivalence. And then teh Hybrids still have an overall advantage over the length of teh race. Toyota and Peugeot have a bit of understanding on LeMans, hybrids, etc. And Ferrari has similar understanding. There is a reason why they have gone the full 4wd hybrid route.
