Several factors for why this laptime was so good. air temperature was definitely good. But tbh, largest factor was, track limits.
Turn 1, the Porsche definitely went much wider and the minimum speed 152kph. In comparison the Pista stayed within the limits and had a minimum speed of 132kph. Just the part between turn 1 and turn 2, the Porsche would have gained about 0.4s.

FIA rules did somewhat change, where the track limit is no longer the white lines, but as long as the inside wheel is still on the curb, it's considered legal. That alone would give newer lap times a huge advantage. But I'm sorry, that first corner is still definitely off track. Really should not have counted.

Elsewhere you see the car being driven to the edges of the track on every occasion, (which is what you should do). While the Pista took some corners with a more tightly and straightening out the steering wheel sooner, as oppose to taking a wider sweep approach.

This explains a lot of why the car was so "fast" on the track, at least compared to the other 700hp cars.

And people call me crazy when I say Porsche is using modified press cars. The whole track consists of long straights and a minimum of turns, yet the car somehow manages to be faster than a significantly more powerful 488 Pista.

Even if you're a hardcore Porsche fanboy, at this point you should admit they're just cheating on tracks.

Wow, better time in worse conditions than Pista
