Markus Hofbauer (driving dynamics specialist) changed over to AMG from Porsche Weissach Development Center. With Cup2, Dynamic Plus package - this is not implausible.

Exactly, So i dont see how it can be valid? Its just a number posted without any type of back up.

The Car will get tested there, Its German, But unless we see some actual proof, It should be deleted. MO

This reference, as such, can be regarded as valid, but how are we supposed to verify it?

All Hockenheim Short lap times 1:09.60 / 1:09.50 corresponds with 7:33 / 7:34 Nordschleife lap times
