Give Liberty a few years time. Maybe in 2021 the F1 cars could be retro-looking.

Actually I'd love to have a better competitiveness in F1. I feel like there's a long gap between teams, but maybe it's just me because F1 is always development-based, one team might have two steps more forward than the other at most.

Quite doubt it :? . The thing is that probably most of the average fans want futuristic cars, not retro. Like 2017. I'm not a huge fan of 2017 cars, however I'll admit they do look better than they did (2009-2016). But they look more futuristic than retro.

I don't wish for retro F1 cars :) future is the future :D. I just found that car pretty cool, not necessarily appliable to F1. The new indycar and future formula e is more like what I hope for in F1.

Another great race. Good to see Bernhard on top of the podium again, although winning twice is still not enough to represent how good of a driver he is. :mrgreen:
Also, the more I read about Toyota/TMG, the more I think that they are not ready to win Le Mans, even after all those years.
Compromising reliability and serviceability in favor of weight reduction and raw speed is not the way to win The Race. :doh:

I really have to question the engineering direction on the Toyota cars, they seem to fail way too easily based on the last couple of years. Endurance racing is about making a car that can stay in one piece and be working at the end of the race, something Toyota does not seem to be doing.

Sorry, bit late to the party, but I don't believe it to be a solely a Toyota issue. Porsche and Audi before have had a fair few issues with the hybrid demands. Very likely Toyota have had more than their fair share of problems there, but that's the nature of motorsport.

It will improve, hybrids are still an infancy project that continues to develop.

It was one of the hottest LMs since they ran hybrids. If you're running cutting edge technology it's going to fail if you push the envelope too much. I'm fine with that since that is the whole point of racing. What worries me more is the lack of P1s in general 6 cars is not a healthy number.

It was more like 5 and a half P1 cars, the Bykolles car was a joke.
