Wonderful. It gets worse and worse.
Why less weight Ford? Unbelievable...
Look at sportscar365.com for more info
Why did you neglect less power? 'Just curious.
Ferrari 1291kg(heaviest in class) Ford 1267 kg... and Ford has 4 liters more fuel capacity(96l) than Ferrari(92l this lowest in GT class) +4 l. compensate lower boost.
BoP was bad!
Who could beat the Porsches? No one!
In the pits/paddock all were talking about BoP....
Thanks FIA/ACO. This is all about politics.
NASCAR is more exciting!
Politics in motorsport,surely not !
The BoP didn't seem to penalise Ford too much as we could see during the race.
Well driven, a Ford was on the pace of a Porsche, but not all the Ford drivers were pushing like Bourdais.
Ferrari looked completely screwed by the BoP this year.
I was amazed of the sped of the BMWs.
Aston suffered from mechanical gremlins, but what happened to the once all conquering Corvettes?
Absolutely. ACO is destroying the sport.
Corvettes are the oldest car in the class. 5th in class is a pretty good result considering Porsche and Ford brought 4 cars and BMW had 2. BMW certainly played the sandbag game well.
I know the Astons had some issues, but they were never anywhere near being on pace. Is that just a BOP issue or a failure in the design of the car?
24 hours of...
who will win LeMans? Toyota or..... Toyota!
ACO / Race director SIGH
GT racing should be like Blancpain with their BoP! (SRO has not same BoP as ACO)
And I agree with “I don’t have a solution. I have just identified it as a challenge. That’s what caused this not to be a very good race.”
And why do you have to come in the 14th lap (GT) even when you do not need fuel or tyres.
That is not BoP imho
I agree. No better example of the fact that they have gone too far in trying to equalize the cars. This years race seemed to be more about the regulations/penalties then it did the on track action.
Ferrari now 5th in Pro

There was no real battle in top GT Pro.
True... however the race below was back and forth for the entire 24 hours.

Post today with a picture of his Ferrari and the pink Porsche
Marchionne should play the hard game, showing the muscles and retiring all Ferrari GT cars until the BOP is reasonable, you set power/weight ratio and stop
The 488 GTE is the most brilliant racing car Ferrari produced in its story, but it is limited to less power than a 430 and weighting more than a 488 Pista. Pure nonsense
Cannot find that Pic, could you please link it?
He delete the message + pic
Even if he wanted to I don't think he could. They are all customer cars. He would have to convince each team to do so.
May you please repeat what he wrote? Just curious
