Alternatively, their simulations were wrong for the Nurburg, and wrong for the rest of season where they "think" they will be competitive

GasperG has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Is there any easy way how to measure #8 pace, they stared almost 5 laps behind and ended over 5 laps behind, how many seconds were they off if we take away those 5 laps?

Num. 8 lost 8min: 25sec.235 (505 seconds) during a first pit stop (had 7 stops ... others had 6 and times from 6min19sec for wining num 2 and 6min: 42sec.137, seven was in the middle and lost that pace ....). They (8) crossed and finished line at time 6hour: 01 min: 47 sec.098, num. 2 6 hour: 00 min: 09 sec.607 as a winner. So, 8 almost did a whole end lap (spent more time on track in the end).

Of course, the data are from FIAWEC Alkamel page.

With one average laptime around 1min45sec (105 sec) it is 505 sec gap = first pit stop (five laps is 525 sec with 105 sec average ...) so, my very gross calculation (prediction) is saying to me, that num. 8 had more time on track and five laps gap is 525 sec, so they are on pace with Porsche, maybe slightly better. : D

And, also, num. 8 lost some time on the first pace lap when come to pits and others had already started a race, that is for sure...

Who knows, check lap times. But for me, it was OK!

That sounded extremely positive. I'd love for Toyota to become the new Audi in the sport.
