Yeah, the LMP1 takes a lot of getting used to.

It's useful to put TCS:1 on to start with, so you aren't just inadvertently bonfiring the fronts.

You have to be quite precise with your braking points, you can't take liberties on corner entry because you'll just miss the apex and run wide. However, once you get the speed and line about right, it starts to come alive. If you're at the right speed at the apex, adding power doesn't cause understeer, instead the diff hooks up. Also, turn in while lifting off and it really arcs into the faster corners.

I started out finding it tough to drive, but with a few more laps I started really enjoying the way it rewards you getting it right, and really liking the drive (this was with the DS3).

A bit like Bowlby's other creation in that regard.
