First Peugeot 9X8 WEC win still "very far away"
Peugeot is not overly confident about its chances of victory in the upcoming round of the WEC at Fuji, despite a podium finish at the previous race in Monza. The team believes it is still missing some performance compared to Toyota and Ferrari. The #94 entry experienced gear-selection issues, and the team’s primary goal for this race is to have both cars finish without any problems. Peugeot has made improvements to its hydraulic system following the test at Portimao. The team expects Fuji to be a good track for them based on last year’s performance. The deployment speed for the Peugeot’s front axle hybrid system has been reduced in dry conditions, but it should not affect the balance between the cars in the Hypercar class.
