On the subject of the Deltawing, a thought occurs. A current F1 car goes around the corner mainly because of the downforce (otherwise why have wings?). If the Deltawing has enough underbody aero as the think it will (still up in the aero, but assuming thay haven't borrow Sauber's computer from 199? when the wind tunnel data said the sauber would be twice as fast as it was). The Deltawing shoudn't have too much trouble getting around corner's...anyway we should find out soon.

F1 cars primarily relied on under body aerodynamics when they had ground-effects, the latter being banned is why so much effort has been put on wings and increasing downforce via that method.

The Delta Wing is a fascinating concept, lets see how it performs in reality. I think it was way too risky and radical for Indycar, as they needed to rely on 25 + cars running the same chassis reliably and safely. But as a one car experiment at Le Mans its worthwhile.

Marino had a fulll Peugeot drive for 2012 before the plug was pulled

While I'm here, the Toyota and the Audi will be within .5 of a second in qualifing at LM this year.

Marino is the sates atm and theres a tweet (yes I dislike them to, but as a news feed it's actually quite good) from Marshall Pruett Saying simple "it turns."

It's still unknown as to what it refers...
