    Guys, don’t even try to drive Italy in any car other than the McLaren. The Ferrari reaches its top speed of 204kph at the end of the two long straights.

    The McLaren reaches 204 right at the exit of the curves and you spend most of the time going at its top speed of 216kph.

    My worst time in the McLaren is 7s faster than my best time in the Ferrari.

    Isn’t that quite a bit unbalanced? I mean the Ferrari is superior in all the curvy tracks, but I’m not sure there is such a big difference.

    It’s pretty realistic though. Ok, 7 seconds is a lot, but in real F1 there are huge differences on tracks like Monza, because some cars are tuned for straight line speed and others for cornering. It’s hard to achieve both when designing a racing car, because they sort of oppose each other.

    I don’t think Italy is the only track where McLaren has a clear advantage. Germany and Canada come to mind, they’re also both high-speed circuits just like Italy.

    To win the championship, you don’t have to win each race. You don’t even have to win a single race 🙂
