SH0077 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

Im fairly sure that I heard Murry and Co announce during the coverage of the San Marino Grand Prix that R.Schumacher set a NEW Outright Lap Record! If this is the case isn't that the first Outright Lap Record that has been broken since the Introduction of Grooved Tyres in '98? Can someone out there please try and help me out with a answer, thanks!

Wasn't the Australia GP also a lap record?

Yes, Ralf set a lap record. He set a 1min25.524 compared to the lap record, a 1min25.53 which was set by Frentzen in 1997.

Thanks for the reply's! But one questions still needs to be answered. Was that Lap Record a first for the Grooved Tyre F1 cars?

List of lap records for current circuits:

Melbourne: Frentzen (1997), 1min30.585
Sepang: doesn't count because there was no lap record prior to the 'grooved era'
Interlagos: M Schumacher (2000), 1min14.755
Imola: R Schumacher (2001), 1min25.524
Barcelona: Fisichella (1997), 1min22.242
A1-Ring: Hakkinen (2000), 1min10.410
Monte Carlo: M Schumacher (2000), 1min19.475
Montreal: M Schumacher (2000), 1min18.439
Nurburgring: Coulthard (2000), 1min17.529
Magny Cours: M Schumacher (2000), 1min15.632
Silverstone: M Schumacher (1997), 1min24.475
Hockenheim: Hakkinen (2000), 1min41.658
Hungaroring: M Schumacher (2000), 1min17.395
Spa: Hakkinen (2000), 1min50.646
Monza: M Schumacher (2000), 1min23.770
Indianapolis: like Sepang, doesn't count
Suzuka: M Schumacher (2000), 1min35.825

So...no, Ralf is definitely not the first "grooved" driver to beat a lap record!

One of the interesting things was how soon the 1.5-litre F1 cars of 1961-65 beat all the 2.5-litre records of 1960...

Progress... tyre development....
