they do not mention AT ALL about the tires used by huracan performante, pista and gt2rs. One thinks the only italian car magazine ("auto" no longer tests ferraris) may try to be at least unbiased towards italian cars...hmm... NO. Apparently, they consider legit to compare the gt2rs with cup2R and Pista with cup2... No surprise here, they are italians for a reason!

Well, Mclaren have been sending out their 720s with just P corsas... if the car comes as is, it makes sense like that. I agree with Ferrari not using the stickiest or.... temperament rubber which gives no grip at all when driven at road legal speeds. They once said they didn’t want to put the most sticky rubber on the Laferrari because they didn’t want their customers worried that if they drove their cars out, they might worry it rain on the way back. VERY few of these cars will ever be driven on track properly so be it. The Performante Trofeo R though is much less terrible in the wet than the cup 2R as shown by top gear in the gt3rs vs 600lt video.

i did not comment on ferrari's choice. It is quattroruote's choice of not mentioning about the tyres used in the laptimes they list, which shows pista slower than gt2rs, when it is not the case, tyres being the same. And this comes from an ITALIAN magazine. Remember those saying that every magazine is biased towards countrymate cars. Italians are the only exception to this otherwise true statement.

"The Performante Trofeo R though is much less terrible in the wet than the cup 2R"

this is typical with 4wd cars, nothing to do with the tyres.

seems they used a Cup 2 R here. Go to 0:25 in the video. The R on the rear tire is clearly visible.

Can you show us the Picture? In the magazine you can read that they use cup 2 to make the test and they put that with the cup R the time will be diferent.

well, obviously it is only possible to upload online pics here (nothing from a hard drive or screenshots). But just go to 00:25 and stop the video before the acceleration starts. Bottom of the tire shows an R after Cup. No clue if they used anything else for the hot lap, but wouldn't make a lot of sense.

Ofcourse they can use this but the test data is with cup 2.

well, Cup 2Rs are also Cup2s, so maybe they just didn't go into detail regarding the specification. We'll never know 100%.

Need proper magazine date month/year otherwise it becomes a mess.
