LMDh sounds like a much cheaper way to get to the overall podium than hypercar.  hypercar is supposed to be slower than an LMP1 hybrid, in part to make them cheaper than LMP1 hybrids.  but then you've got this new option that's likely even cheaper (though not leveraging much in the way of a road-going car), and probably not much slower (if any).  as 24 hour racing in particular is as much about reliability as being fast out on track, would you want to enter your expensive hypercar against a WTR cadillac LMDh? 

at the same time, this might just be aston martin refocusing its limited resources on supporting the F1 team that just bought it while scapegoating LMDh.

Good points, and yeah, I was wondering too how this might be tied to their recent F1 developments, and the lingering rumor that they & Stroll want to take over the Merc team as well....
