    It would be nice to see other manufactures companies getting involved to make a larger P1 class, but so far the addition of Porsche is a much welcome

    More competition in LMP1 can only make it better

    How do you get to be competitive from the get go? Copy as much as you can from the best car in the field,and employ a top rate driver. They've ticked those boxes.Mark Webber has unfinished business at Le Mans,and has experience,raw speed & patience,probably the most important attributes required in a driver for multiclass racing.He definitely understands about closing speeds & slower cars,his last few years in F1 have had EXTREMELY slow back markers, (HRT,Virgin,Marrussia,Caterham & even Williams & Torro Rosso on their bad days and tracks). Mark learnt not to assume a backmarker will let him through easily when Heiki Kovaleinen decided to block him at Valencia,despite Mark qualifying on the first 2 rows,Heiki on 2nd to last row,4.5 secs slower on the option tyre while Mark on Primes!!!! Would love to see 3 or 4 way fight for the win,& all being different manufacturers,without safety cars having closed it up at the front!
