So 9 seconds slower than the 720s which, lets remind ourselves, is very similar dynamically (710+ hp, rear wheel drive, mid engined, similar weight and even more turbo lag for the 720s)
Conclusion: the discrepancies in laptimes are due to ferraris choice of equipping the pista with semi slicks which only perform in the dry.
