it is not the complete story. What they also did was injecting more diesel fuel to reach higher performance.

It is not for nothing that in spite further restrictions, the cars were still faster than last year.
Apparently Peugeot overestimated the speed that Audi could maintain, and therefore kept on pushing right from the start. A more cautious strategy, staying with the Audis and running away from them on the 23rd hour, would possibly have been more successful.
