The Aston must slow down a lot more on the corners than the Renault. Still glorious na v12 sound.

If they were standing start then the p1 should have annihilated the other two even more because it was by far the quickest at the end of the straight.

Andreas - The problem is that it's not really a hot lap if indeed they did go from a standstill. A hot lap requires a flying start. I'm also not convinced they were from standing starts (my first guess would certainly be otherwise), unless we believe the video, in which case he massively sandbagged in the P1 by drifting it around two bends, which definitely loses heaps of time. Very little hard evidence available either way, very poor test in that respect.

No I actually don't know that. Do you have any extra info confirming that they were standing laps (other than whats already discussed)?

Even if they are (and they very well might be), having flying and standing laps on same board doesn't make it inaccurate. Standing start is a self-inflicted disadvantage that just results in slower laptimes - nothing wrong with having fast and slow laptimes on same board.

It is only a problem once you start comparing cars.

I assume you do know that Jérôme d'Ambrosio's laps are from a standstill, and Chris Harris's were on a flying start...which obviously makes a massive difference rendering your time board pretty inaccurate?

Well Cup 2s were 2.4s faster than Cup+ even on a 991 Turbo S on a 2 minute track.

Trofeos (non-R) which are still faster than Corsas were only 0.4s faster on a 1 minute track.

Meanwhile Trofeo Rs were only 1.79s quicker than Corsas here. All same day tests.

Probably a few tenths faster than on Cup 2s.

not sure. people pretent not to know that in 4wd cars, tyres differences are not at all as relevant as in 2wd cars.

trofeos r give a measurable advantage over cup2, especially on a 2 min track, for 2wd cars.
