Good points there folks! Also I think the 80-160 time has since been altered.

Just as with the Renault Meg Trophy, the Honda easily wins the track battles but loses in the straight line. Again, this IS the FASTEST LAPS site? Even in the straight line, the Honda DOES win 80-160 kph

I suggest you don't pay much attention to the scoring part

I wouldn't waste my time unless you separate the acceleration from the track times which we already know are going to be controversial due to significant differences between press drivers abilities. So maybe fastest in a straight line and fastest on track rather than combining the two :)
