@86_4_life @JoaoOliveira The problem is that is impossible to exist a "balance", it will always favour someone, because racing is decided by tenths of a second... Every racing category that mixes tecnologies and has different "rules" for different cars, kind of sucks, there's always someone that has advantage over another...The diesel doesn't have more mass because there's something called "minimum weight"... That's why hybrids and diesels can win races, because they don't have the penalty of having to carry extra weight, in the end they all will weigh the same. If you made a very light car, you will have to add weight to reach minimum weight.Once audi feels that regulation don't favour diesel, they will go back to the tecnology that they feel it's the most "helped" by the regulations... If there was no weight limit, nobody would be racing hybrids, the extra weight power wouldn't make up for the extra weight and complexity...

@86_4_life @AdamBezzegh I could have sworn that there was clever people on this website... Well, yes diesel won, but do you actually watch or know anything about it? I doubt... It's a great marketing strategy, and it worked perfectly on youDiesel won many years 24h Lemans, sure... BUT... Regulation alowed diesels to have 5.5liter twin turbo engines... if you ran petrol, you had to do with 2.0 liter turbo, or 3.4 NA... They still are highly favoured todayIt's like having a cow to race horses... if you tie the horses legs, the cow might win... But if the regulation were the same for petrol and diesel, diesel would be laped 10 or 15 times... A Steam powered car could win 24h of lemans if regulations were made for it.24h Lemans is the proof that diesel is inferior when it comes to racing, that they have to blow diesel engines to let them be competitive*flies away*
I think it's overdone. with a bit less camber,a bit less drop, and wheels one or two inch smaller, it would have looked even better and way more usable in my opinion.

@PierreBelliveau all very cool, but when vettel need Webber's help to win the championship, he might not be there to help anymore like he did in the past...And Webber when the pitstop came was 4 seconds ahead of vettel, so I doubt, if mark kept pushing, he would win anyway

@F1_is_not_a_procession @777 @JDMized Webber had a 4 second lead before the pitstop, then turned the gine down, when vettel came back to the track, he was all over mark...
It was ferrari's call not Alonso's... inform yourself, before saying bullshit... Even if it wasn't, better crash alone, than crash into your teammate like Vettel does
Amazing! track record by almost a second with a "oldschool" RWD car in a track that favours AWD tracks :)

@patmald Why going with KERS? KERS is complicating a simple car... Complicating to have a boost of 3 or 4 seconds at a cost of 50 or 60kg (maybe more) of weight, wich spoils the car.... Adding just 30kg, you can get a turbo system that not only gives MUCH more power than KERS, but also gives that extra power ALL the time, not just a few seconds...So yeah... Why having a Less powerfull, heavier, and overcomplicated car, when you can a have a more powerfull, simpler and more reliable one?

Realy cool loking, but, I think the Murcielago had more drama in the roadster version

I'm sorry but I don't get these hybrid things in sports cars... Sports cars ar much about weight, and how much performance they can get out of that weight...KERS or other hibrid stuff have such a poor "specific" output, I mean, the power to weight ratio of those things are terrible.... With kers, you would like something like 50 or 60kg maybe more, a lot of complexity, just to have a few seconds of extra power... that's crap...The truth is wich a supercharger or turbo charger, you will get a lot more extra power than KERS, with unlimited time of extra boos, and with much less extra weight added to the car... So... A turbocharged/supercharged GT86 would be much more powerfull, less complex and lighter than a GT86 with KERS....

Is Nemo RWD or 4WD? In the previous post here at SH, says theis about the Nemo: "reputedly sending 900hp to the rear wheels and a weight of less than 1000kg". Is it right?

Who said you needed a v8 to be competitive? Nice to see a 15+ year old straight six, kicking v8 ass...
