1 wheel gun = longer pit stop. This favours cars that are more fuel efficient (and drivers who are not so hard on their tyres)
It will get the teams to weigh up out and out power vs fuel consumption.

Going to very disappointing only too see the AUDI r15 race twice in 2009 ... SEBRING LE MANS

The R15 could be mighty in terms of speed, just imagine if it could be faster than the 908 and as these past years have shown – Audi work better as a team in tricky situations. Blimey…

However, I cannot see Peugeot taking their defeat lying down – especially when you consider the size of the investment. I still think the R15 is not a whole new car, but a major upgrade in order to compete with the pace of Peugeot.

it is also an attempt to make teams use less tyres

Autosport can exclusively reveal the first image of the car Audi hope will continue their unbroken record of diesel-powered victories at Le Mans in June, as they seek to keep Peugeot at bay.

This spy-shot of Audi's new R15 TDI, seen in secret testing at Vallelunga, (more of which can be seen in this week's Autosport magazine, on sale tomorrow) reveals just how radical the German manufacturer's approach has been to the car that will replace their all-conquering R10.

Audi won the 2008 Le Mans 24 Hours, both Le Mans Series and American Le Mans titles, and Petit Le Mans, but the need for a new car was apparent as the German manufacturer was outdone for pace by Peugeot's 908 HDi FAP last year.....

Looks very good. I like the design

I like the look of this car, however i feel the idea is to go down the route of the F1 style front nose section on these cars for aerodynamics
