Too close to call?

Diesel v diesel, petrol v petrol, diesel v petrol and a bit of ethanol thrown in as well (good luck Lord Drayson!). There are many permutations of what could happen over the next 24 hours or so at Le Mans, but is anyone seriously countenancing anything beyond a diesel clean sweep?

Of course there are plenty of battles to watch out for beyond LMP1 but that's the money story and the two big players have got a lot riding on this one. Audi like to win of course and would dearly love to win again in this their centenary year - victory in the diesel-powered R15 would be a fine way of honouring their history but also a nod to the future and the consistently strong development programme from Ingolstadt.
