it beat the RS at 3 tracks more clearly than the RS beat it on the 4 other tracks... the reason why it recive more points for track perfromance... and btw.. in central/north europe the main market of both cars with 150 wet days a year in average, wet perfromance is pretty important.. the reason why so many important europen car magazines include a wet handling test....

So in other words, its not faster, it just beats the RS on that track, which is wet.

there is no mistake...

thats the fastestlaps calculation system.. the Megane is quoted faster because on the Autocar wet handling track it was lightyears faster than the RS.. the reason why it gets more points for track perfromance ...and no matter if the topspeed and 0-100time is better for the RS the different isn´t all that big and important...
