    What would you do to improve EOT as Toyota were way too dominant and the LMP1 privateers were way off the pace at Spa so that is more closer at Le Mans?

    Regarding Jean Todt’s comments about a manufacturer influx into the FIA WEC’s future LMP1 (or equivalent) category last week, what do you believe is a more realistic prospect for the WEC in terms of prototype manufacturer involvement when the new regulations come into force in 2020-21?

    Audi GT3 LMS Cup, why don’t we see other GT3 manufacturers take this approach,
    of building mulitple GT3 machines, for single make series?
    For example, wouldn’t Porsche, and Ferrari save money by just producing 2 cars GTE and GT3 rather 3 cars. The 3rd cars being the respective manufacturers Cup / single mark cars.

    Do you think David Cheng has stepped out of the driver seat, because of what Bruno Senna said about him in Bahrain last year?

    Last week you said the target EOT for LMP1 at Le Mans was for non-hybrids to be 1/2 second slower per lap and to have a 2 lap shorter stint length. How does the FIA/ACO expect any non-Toyota LMP1 to have any chance at competing when they are slower and need more pit stops (I expected some Toyota favoritism but this seems excessive)?
