If it ran another lap it could've broken down and the recovery had to show up to pull that fugly lotus out of the track

I think even with the standard configuration it can go faster, Maybe around 7:20 with good McLaren driver.

It's a Horst lap though, official laps are always faster.

Looks to me like F355 won the bet. I thought it would get a 7:25.0

Surprised GT2RS sport auto time is faster....it's good though because now Mclaren has to bring out an official laptime.
