Not bad, but not too good either. Didn't the i30 N do a very similar time at 8:05?

I agree. It has incredibly good aerodynamics and goes fast in the straights. Should be a 7:55 with ease

Ah I see~ I don't really follow it very closely. But the same driver was 8~9 seconds off in the McLaren's vs Ferrari too. Something's are just that way. ;)
