Considering this car was some 20kph slower than the cars that went faster, I think this really punched above its weight

High downforce car = lower peak speeds.

Yep and later braking with faster corner speeds which makes up for the slower acceleration in the straights...

and having 200-250hp less too.

Yeah, I think it's one of the fastest cornering cars ever (maybe even faster than the Senna). Even though it only has 520 horsepower, it's usually in the top 10 on every track page.
