The FIA and ACO have amended its per-lap fuel allocation limits for the LMP1 privateers for next weekend’s penultimate round of the season at Spa.

The move comes after the TS050 Hybrids dominated every race this season despite encouraging signs from the non-hybrids during practice.

Under the amended regulations, privateer teams will now be able to run flat-out without having to lift and coast. Whether the move to reduce the gap between the non-hybrids and hybrids, will work will likely not be evident until the race on Sunday.

However, to create some balance in an additional move, the minimum weight of the non hybrid LMP1’s has been raised by six kilos, from 818 kg to 824 kg.

One of the leading naturally-aspirated teams, will be seeking to supplement the changing to their advantage by introducing a low-downforce bodywork configuration for the final two rounds of the 2018-19 ‘Super Season’ at Spa and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Rebellion currently trails Toyota in the teams standings by 53 points with two races remaining.
