New thread on P1 Ring times. Please try to keep it on topic.
Will they get under 7 minutes?

There is one thing we have to do Doom! So regardless of us getting in heated discussions on here, let's promise each other one thing... We will do the best to bring the 918 and the P1 together to one location to do a bunch of tests with it. Honestly curious what each can do better than the other since I am rather sure you are right on many points above. And we all know how much we can "trust" car shows or magazines doing tests...I think it will beat 918 eventually , or at least it should . As for corner speeds ( re ftyl) I think that it will depend of the corner . More accurately the speed of the corner . On a corner reliant on mechanical grip the 918 will obviously have the edge on higher speed downforce corners I think the p1 will kill every road car yet seen . Going into corners the 918 will be noticeably faster to a Pro but in acceleration especially higher speeds the p1 is noticeably faster . ( this is why the 918 will be fastest on real roads a to b and the p1 faster in track ).
The enigma of the bunch is the la Ferrari . This is potentially the fastest car here . Lightest ( unless they lie) , most powerful ( unless they lie) as aerodynamically advanced as p1 ( unless they lie ) and as track focused as p1 .
Obviously , weather , quality of surface etc will be deciding factors too . But in general terms I expect each car to be faster on the tracks that best suit that particular cars characteristics. This is simple logic ( at least lying here on my couch watching count duckula it sounds really quite clever ).
This is brilliant . I was going to post something once cars started getting delivered . I have already arranged a la Ferrari owner and a huayra .There is one thing we have to do Doom!

So the honest real way is a test among owners, don't you think?
I ( like boxer) have actually asked for a later car .Sounds good to me. I can probably arrange another former f1 pilot through some connections of mine..
When do you get your 918, any rough idea yet?
I really didn't plan or want to getting into this discussion (everybody has an opinion).Arguably the Porsche has better initial acceleration. So 0-40mph or so is likely slightly faster. From then on the P1 quickly catches up and becomes quicker. But, I think it does not matter since the P1 can likely take most turns at considerably faster speeds than the Porsche in the first place, which will completely negate that benefit it has...
We will see...
I'm not hiring the ring for a day it's several hundred thousand euros matey.It would be great if a couple of owners of P1,918 and LF get together, engage a driver to drive all 3 cars around the ring. This would be epic. The same driver with the 3 hottest cars.
