The new Nordschleife record was enough to play to the competitive nature of Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, who himself crashed at the Nurburgring while trying to set a lap record in 2009, but he admitted there was no budget in place to adapt an F1 auto for a record attempt.
Timo Bernhard, who was part of Porsche's title-winning LMP1 programme, was behind the wheel on Friday morning as the 919 Hybrid Evo smashed a new lap record.
In light of its achievement in Belgium and Germany, we wouldn't be surprised to see the 919 Evo embark on a global lap-record offensive, heading to other tracks where it has previous in the WEC, such as Le Mans, Silverstone and Fuji. However, Porsche had hoped to undercut the 35-year old record, to which it laid claim, by a full minute, hence why Bernhard was dispatched for the third and final run, even with the new record already bagged.
And what a race vehicle it turned out to be! Bernhard is a five-time overall victor of the 24 Hours Nürburgring, two-time outright victor of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and current World Endurance Champion. The hybrid system captures energy from the front brakes and the exhaust system, storing it in a lithium-ion battery. A much larger rear wing with an active drag reduction system - like an F1 car's - give the up-specced Porsche more downforce in the corners and better top speed on the straights.
