Considering the dry handling results, the R8 V10 has an advantage of 0,51 seconds, so the R8 actually is the dry handling winner.
Considering the 'sport auto wet handling test' to create an overall winner, the R8 lags behind by 5,69 seconds.
Is that enough for an advantage of 31 points for the GT3 in the track-section?
