LaFerrari is here. It’s an endless procession of exotica the Nurburgring in recent weeks. It with the McLaren P1, which a furore of sub seven speculation . was closely followed by the Porsche 918 which ended all that with a genuine 6m57s lap .

LaFerrari has arrived at the ‘ring week.

And before McLaren even regroup its forces, the and final hybrid hypercar of just arrived at the Nurburgring Yep, Ferrari is here.

With the hype surrounding lap and following in the wake of Marc magical lap (below), there’s no way visit is an innocent one. I can’t believe that.

But I don’t believe it will Porsche’s time.

I’m not a Porsche, McLaren or Ferrari If you want an emotionally charged from me, you’d be better off about first generation versus second.

So let’s this analytical. Why do I honestly the two other cars won’t the Germans?

but Dale’s unsure it beat 6m 57s

Is it the power? The LF’s total (V12 and two battery-drill motors) 963hp. The P1 claims 916hp.

By the Porsche ‘only’ has 887hp at and relies more heavily on of electric output for that total figure (watch the lap and the top speed up Kesselchen with batteries to the top speed up the Dottinger with empty batteries). you factor in the crazy active of the P1 and LF, and their lighter kerbweights Porsche is around 400kg than the LF), it’s to believe the Porsche can even

The variables are immense.

Is Lamborghini a riposte too?

From a point of view, the perfect lap is tough. On a one-minute lap, it only take a few sessions. On a lap it’s more than as difficult.

Up the scale to three at somewhere like Spa-Francorchamps and you be there all weekend before you get it Treble it again to the Nordschleife’s and the perfect lap might never be

It’s for that reason I don’t believe that P1 went under seven for all of its previous boasting or technological The engineers, the drivers, they made a wonderful car. The is true at Ferrari.

But they’re just not invested the Nurburgring like Porsche They don’t have experts like Marc and ‘old guy’ Walter on the McLaren and Ferrari are coming a dark room full of and only Porsche know the light switch is.

Of course, if the P1 or LaFerrari can beat the 918’s without resorting to slicks, I it will reflect even favourably on any car managing to beat experience and local knowledge. But a big if!
