Inside the June edition:
As Toyota becomes the only remaining LMP1 hybrid contender, surely there is nothing stopping the Japanese marque from scooping up both the WEC and 24 hours of Le Mans titles? But with restrictions on their performance, a rich history of reliability issues and competitive privateer teams waiting in the wings, it might not be such an easy fight to 1st place after all. We discover how Toyota have developed their TS050 and their team to try and guarantee success at Le Mans for the first time.
One of the privateer teams aiming to take the fight to Toyota is Rebellion with their new Oreca R13. We get under the skin of this new contender. Also in this issue, Peter Wright discusses the potential future of Formula 1 after the recent 2021 announcements, and whether this F1 revolution will be a help or hindrance to F1 technology. Racecar gets the low-down on the innovations behind this year’s Sauber and also delve into the challenges of rebuilding a Porsche 962.
This months technology section includes a complete guide on tyre engineering, explaining how the surface condition of that all important rubber can help determine the optimum set-up. OptimumG enlighten us with the last instalment of their Formula Student top tips and we learn the importance of seven post rigs and how teams use them to gain on-track performance.
