Assuming they ever do release a time, and assuming it did go around in one continuous lap, place your bets here!

Update
Note, the first option should read: 7:04:01 or slower

Sorry about that typo; seems like there is no easy way to update the poll text after it's live.

6:47s & under... perhaps down to 6.39s (or slightly less, even nearing the 6.33s sim' time)!

You left out 'never released' as an option - but I suppose someone can just abstain.

I think it would also be more interesting as an open poll. I'd like to see the votes entered by some of our in-house McLaren Automotive contributors... I mean lurkers.

Yes, I know how to read, I think. :p It would be just as interesting to see how many believe McLaren will stick to their position and never release the time.

Also, I must admit to cheating with my answer. ;)

There are some crazy votes on that poll , lol
LOL x 100. 6 people think they can pull at 6:33 - 6:38 time!!:D

I voted for the 6:57 - 6:59 option based on the official word from Woking. That they accomplished their goal of being under 7 mins yet somehow they didn't want to publish a laptime!!

I voted 6:47, I have no basis for this whatsoever except internet gossip.

I will say that to come up with a theory on why McLaren would not release their time... gets a bit conspiracy theory like. "They are saving it for future use so as to surprise everybody somewhere down the road", "they don't want to give Porsche and Ferrari a target to aim for"...

Those are more complex and elaborate than "it just didn't work out", occaam's razor?

7:04 or slower. You really wouldn't want to post a time if you ran that in this contest. :D The last time I check they haven't.

I wonder if the car that started the lap finished it?

You could imagine a certain Italian car company trying that to reduce lap times. Both drivers in same type of full face helmet, same gloves (fine Italian napa leather), same overalls. Gucci driving shoes.

I wonder if the Director of Capricorn One is an Italian!
