I just driven the McLaren F1, and a long time ago I remember, that the car was much harder to drive, now, with the new tires, the car is a lot easier,
and point is, its now much faster then anything in Road B.

In fact the car is faster, then some Road A cars.
Lets take the Mclaren 12c, and compare it to the F1:
(I have taken the world records, but my own times show the same results)




Monaco
Monza
Silverst.
Spa
Nords
RoadAm
Watkins
Bathurst


12C
1:38,585
1:50,663
2:08,927
2:28,255
7:04,691
2:14,957
1:51,608
2:14,262


F1
1:37,705
1:46,290
2:08,649
2:26,202
7:03,061
2:12,746
1:49,247
2:09,314



-0,880
-4,343
-0,278
-2,053
-1,630
-2,211
-2,361
-4,948




You can clearly see, that on every track the F1 is faster then the 12c, that is in Road A.

So question remains, why is the F1 in Road B, and not in Road A - surely the Devs must have noticed this as well.

In my opinion, I think the 12c should be in road b rather than the F1 in road A. I am comfortably quicker (with stock setups) around a lot of tracks in the BAC Mono than I am in the Mclaren F1, its only on tracks like Monza with massive straights that I am quicker in the F1.

12c is quite slower than P1 Huayra Zonda Cinque and the Rufs

If I were doing a magazine road test with the 12C and its contemporaries, those contemporaries would include the SLS and the R8. Both of which are in Road B IIRC. It wouldnt include the Mustang GT as that is up on weight, and down on power when compared to the SLS, R8 and 12C.......
