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....

From RacingPal.com
Lola, 2.0l., 1978
Lola T298, chassis No. HU99 / 1978;
Engine BMW M12/7 (F2) 2000.
Gearbox: Hewland FG 400
Completely revised 2011, Only 2 races after revision
HTP FIA (Two-Seater Racing Cars - Period IR); FIA Technical passport; Certificate of origin; FIA Structural Integrity Testing; History of all owners (This car has only had 3 owners).
Car registered on the official website Lola Heritage
Last race: Imola Classic 9/10/2011
Ready to race.

Chassis HU99 was delivered new to the Italian gentleman driver Stefano Bettoni, from Brescia. Bettoni drove the car in 3 hill-climb races without great success. The Lola stayed in the Bettoni's garage for a couple of years.
In 1982 he sold the car to Mr. Arrigo Fabris, a collector who never used the car, subsequently the car was sold again in 1991 to the current owner. At this point the car was in beautiful and original condition since it had covered less than 80 km from new!
Unlike the past owners, the current owner planned to regularly race the car, hence it was totally gone through and fitted with a fresh BMW M12 2 litre engine.
The car has been campaigned extensively since the early 1990’s throughout Europe with all the revisions and maintenance done in proper time.
Come 2008 a substantial second restoration by Luigi Moreschi Motorsport ensured the Lola was kept in top condition.
Recent results are a Masters win at the Brands Hatch Festival in 2010 and 2 second places in 2011 at Imola during the Sport Prototype Trofeo Giunti.
The car has never been crashed and the BMW M12 has two hours of use since the last full rebuild from Luigi Moreschi Motorsport.
