    I never do it. Sleep needed. Especially with 2 young kids.

    If go have power naps, best thing is 45 minutes or 2 hours.

    I really don't like that.. It's same with Mercs in F1.. Hide your pace so you know when you need it you got it.. Try to get an advantage out if it, like Mercs: if they would have show their real pace through whole 2014 and 2015 there would have definitely be some rule changes to slow them down.. But now they let it seem like it's a great championship etc.. That's no real sport..
    Ford was so off the pace in previous round and now they are class leading..

    Still looking good... Even the #5 could get back into a podium position later tonight. Feels tense, like 2014.

    Mercedes needed to go as fast as they needed to. The engine rules were absurd but it's embarrassing that Ferrari are yet to really challenge them. However, in the Ford case, Ferrari hammered them in the first two rounds yet the ACO are effectively handing them the race here. The fact BoP exists and can be manipulated this way is scandalous. I predicted this would happen at the beginning of the year, yet the ACO fell for it hook, line and sinker.

    There's nothing really separating the lap times the 2 Fords and what #82 is doing I hope we can turn the tables on them.

    Meanwhile it's not exactly a classic at the front of the field, bit of a disappointment if you ask me.

    Ford & the american racing community have been playing up the fact that Ford is returning on the 50th anniversary of their first entry & win at Le Mans, anything less than a win here would be a disaster for their marketing people, at least I'm sure that is how they feel about it! So no surprise to me they sandbagged up to now to properly set the stage for a "triumphant return to Le Mans (sorry, think I used same phrase in a previous post ).
    Always "hated" Ford since I was a child, was a chevy/GM guy until I discovered those wonderful European imports in my teens!
