***THIS IS NOT PORSCHE´S ACTUAL BEST LAP***
Porsche only published onboard footage of a 1:43?,5! In order to make this video I rendered their video at a speed of about 102%, which shortend the 1:43?,5 to approximately 1:41?,7 (which is the actual time Porsche set)
This video is meant to demonstrate the different strenghts and “weaknesses” of the two fastest racing cars in the world around the world famous Circuit de Spa-Franchochamps.
Porsche operated their car without adhering to any regulations which they have been previously bound to, resulting in a much faster time, than the car would do under normal (legal) conditions. They did this to showcase the potential of their 919 Hybrid and to demonstrate how much the car had been held back by the regulations. As it turned out, it was even faster than the Formula 1 Cars of 2017 and most F1 Cars of 2018. Only Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas since managed to beat Porsche´s time of 1:41?,770 set in 2018.
