I recently came across an interesting question - why do cars at LeMans slow down before the finish line? After some research, I found out that it's mainly due to a combination of factors such as preserving the car's mechanical components, adhering to safety regulations, and ensuring the best possible result for the team. Slowing down also allows drivers to have better control over their cars, especially in high-pressure situations. In a nutshell, it's all about maintaining the balance between speed and safety to secure a successful race outcome.
