Did Ferrari hang this guy for failing to meet or exceed their benchmark time?

They didn't hang MT so

It would be too risky and costly for them to kidnap someone in the US. But within Italy, I think its a big risk to post a lap time that's 2 seconds slower than what they advertise...

Ha the lap time was back in 2015 on PZero tyres so hardly a hanging offence. Stick some Cup2R's on the LaFerrari and watch the difference :)

at 0:52 you can see it was Corsas, Ferrari's fault that they didn't offer a Trofeo R option or at least the "normal" Michelin Cup which already were available at the time. If they did this it would have been clearly quicker than P1 an 918 on most tracks.

Lol, would have should have could have. Ferrari left themselves out of any competitions and banned anyone who tried to.
Add the fact that they kept spinning the wheels with their fake weight of 1295kg, to say it was the lightest and that Porsche was so heavy. When in fact that weight is not only dry weight but also without batteries. And the actual curb weight, is within 50kg of what the 918. Add the fact the 918 has AWD, and convertible roof, the equivalent Laferrari Aperta would have certainly been heavier than the 918 with weissache pack.
Then the Ferrari apologists would say, its got a V12. It handles great, and it’s heavier than expected, so what? And here I’d say, yes. A great car shouldn’t be determined by laptimes at all. But a great company cannot be of lies and cheats. Just look at their Formula 1 debacles. I was such a fan of Ferrari, but now I’m indifferent.

Blah balh blah, now you are a Beetle fanboi, I guess?
Anyway, how old are you? Because you are so naive.
It is business in the end. No trick no profit.
You really think others don't do this?
By the way what about VAG?
Have you forgotten the Dieselgate?
Or maybe you haven't heard about that Weissach tuner?
Ferrari has its' tricks others got theirs'.
But nevertheless nobody is going to argue over their 16 F1 titles.
Or maybe you?)

Given that Quattroroute tester had a limited number of laps on the track, and was only 2 seconds behind the Ferrari factory driver, I wouldn't say this is a bad result.
It is enough to look at the difference in the results of journalists and factory pilots on the VIR and Nordschleife to understand that Mr. Fugazza is a competent pilot. And I think he can feel safe from the Ferrari sanctions, the Scuderia bosses should be satisfied with the result shown within just a few laps of testing on an unfamiliar car.
