Is the Carrera GT ring time faster than the McLaren F1?

Well I mean just consider it logically. 10 years of development you'd THINK we'd be a little further along...

I never saw a Ring time from the McLaren F1. Link anyone?

Besides I'm not entirely certain the F1 would be slower around the Ring. With nearly the same bhp (627 vs. 612) it is around 250 kg lighter than the CGT which is a lot. I'd say the Porsche has better aero (drag and downforce) which could compensate for it but that's just an estimation by me.

And the supsension is probably better too, like Dakian said, something must have happened in 10 years.
