I don’t think that Nissan has anything to be embarrassed about when it comes to their new prototype LMP1 car. By definition the thing is a prototype, therefore, it can’t be perfect the first time out.
Sure, it understeered like crazy, and maybe sending 1000 BHP to the front wheels may make for some torque steering problems, but all in all I think their car did well. Do they have a long way to go? yes, yes they do.
For a first showing, it wasn’t too bad.
