The smaller engine is pushed further toward the middle of the car than in the R10, resulting in a more neutral weight balance that gives the car better agility around the corners than its predecessor. This was not due to the legality debate rather that in Sebring trim the mesh had been getting damaged and collected debris during the race altering the cars aero balance. The dispute rumbled on until Le Mans in June when things came to a head, Audi had made some minor revisions to the R15’s front bodywork, replacing a mesh screen in the front ducts with a ‘horn’ of carbon fibre.
